Frequently Asked Questions
If you have a question click here and see if we have an answer for your question.
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).
Also, please bring your signed and printed waiver (as well as signed and printed waivers for any teammates' bibs you're picking up) to packet pickup! We cannot release bibs without a signed waiverfor each participant. There is a charge for replacements at bib pickup if you forget! (If you've lost your waiver, you can download a new one on the race location information page by scrolling down to where it says "waiver" and clicking the link.)
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.
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.
It's only fun if you do it in style and with a group, and yes we're talking about parking. Parking will be $10 a car, so carpool if you can!

Operation Walk Pittsburgh, a branch of a global health campaign bringing hope to many in need of orthopedic surgery, is led by Dr. Anthony DiGioia, and was formed in 2008.
Since Operation Walk Pittsburgh's inaugural international trip in August of 2009 to Antigua, Guatemala, the Pittsburgh team has performed 242 surgeries on 195 patients in three countries. The team returned to Guatemala in 2010 then traveled to Panama in 2011 and Honduras in 2012. Each year a team of over 50 volunteers is assembled with surgeons, anesthesiologists, physical therapists, medical technicians, nurses, sponsor representatives and dedicated family members. These trips not only serve as a way to Grant the Wish to Walk but also as an educational training opportunity to help better the skills of medical professionals worldwide.
In addition to international efforts, Operation Walk Pittsburgh is committed to serving the local community. Thanks to the support of two area hospitals—Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC and Butler Memorial Hospital, the team is able to reach more patients than ever before in need of hip and knee replacement surgery. Each of the patients receives free surgery as well as rehabilitation to begin their new lives.
Operation Walk is a private, not-for-profit, volunteer medical service organization that provides free surgical treatment for patients in developing countries and in the United States who have no access to life-improving care for arthritis or other debilitating bone and joint conditions. Operation Walk also educates in-country orthopedic surgeons, nurses, physical therapists and other healthcare professionals on the most advanced treatments and surgical techniques for diseases of the hip and knee joints. This is done in conjunction with surgeries and other humanitarian efforts to help create a lasting contribution to patient care in developing countries.
