Frequently Asked Questions
If you have a question click here and see if we have an answer for your question.
Arrive
You need to arrive an hour BEFORE your muddy, foamy, wave starts to allow enough time to get registered, scope out the mud, and soak in the awesome atmosphere. If you are one of those chronically late people, tell yourself you need to be there 2 hours early.
What to bring
First off bring your friends and family—or anyone else who needs proof of your mud run and obstacle course skills or someone who needs a demonstration of your mud flinging abilities. Don't forget your mud money for parking and fun! You should probably bring a towel and some extra clothes because your clothes will get muddy and wet, but you probably already guessed this. If you forget your game face, then you're FOL (Foam Outta Luck).
Waiver
Make sure to bring a copy of the waiver signed by you to the race. If you dont have a copy of the waiverclick here to download it and then print it off and sign it. If you do not bring the waiver, it will be $1 day of race to receive the waiver.
BIB Pickup

Can't forget this! BIB pick-up will be at Road Runner located at:

Kingsbury Center
1435 North Kingsbury St.
Chicago, IL. 60642

Bib pick-up will be on Friday, May 31 from 12 pm- 8pm or you can pick up your bib on race day! Be sure to come at least ONE HOUR early to avoid lines! T-shirts and medals will be handed out at the finish line. For all your cool swag from vendors, look for your virtual swag bag on your email!

Gear Check In
Try and leave as much stuff as you can at home or in your car— but for the stuff you can't leave behind, or that you don't want covered in mud and foam, we will have a secure place to check in your gear. Please note that we do not accept children at the gear check-in.
What to wear?
We said "Adventure Run" right? Well folks let's get adventurous! Anything goes as long as you wear some clothes. You will be running in foam, mud and water so you'll want something that can get muddy, foamy and that allows you the freedom to move and groove. Costumes are the coolest and come with their own list of pros, so choose but choose wisely my friends.
What do I get?

For starters, yes, you will be getting so much more than the already rad 5K Foam Fest FREE Race T-shirt. You get the chance to win prizes. Also, take advantage of our nearly endless supply of FREE (temporary) tattoos—so you can get all tatted up for the day. Ace in the hole, and then a GOOOOOOAAAALLLLL!!!!!!!! ! Not to mention of you finish the run you get the coveted Foam Fest medal. While partying with us, you get FREE access to Games and Activities like: Foam Pit, Pull-Up Bar, Mud, Limbo, Minute to Win It games, etc. etc. And to top it all off you get a free cold Mike's Hard Lemonade.
