More than just a mud run, foam is scattered along this course, filling bounce houses and slathered on slides. “I think the biggest thing is for people to realize that these events need to be fun,” Hamilton says. And without any means of timing participants, the “race aspect” is eliminated, leaving participants free to simply enjoy the foam and mud, according to 5k Foam Fest spokeswoman Kara Vincent.
