The Arizona 5k Foam Fest is right around the corner! Knowing how to prepare for a race like this can be challenging, this is why we would like to give you 5 helpful training tips that will get you ready for Arizona 5k Foam Fest in no time!

#1  Steal your best friends shoes- by the end of the race the shoes on your feet will be close to destroyed. We recommend stealing your friends shoes so that you don’t have to ruin yours!

#2 Eat 5-6 tablespoons of sand each day- During this race you may find yourself inhaling large quantities of sand. To get your body ready for this type of digestion we suggesting eating a little each day.

#3 Drink water, drink water, drink water! This race is going to be hot. Make sure to drink before the race, during the race, and after the race. We will provide water stations but please also bring a water bottle!

#4 Practice climbing over your neighbors fence. During the race you will need to climb over a series of walls. We suggest practicing on your neighbors fence because it will give you a similar experience to our walls.

#5 Take a bubble bath each night before you go to bed- The bubbles in the bath will help you get into the 5k Foam Fest zone.

As long as you follow these 5 helpful tips, you will have no problem finishing the 5k Foam Fest!

Medals are here!

We know you have all been dying to know what the medals look like this year. Well guess what? They are here and we are ready to share.

Awesome, we know. If you haven’t ordered your medal yet, make sure you do it soon!

What’s in the Foam?

Many people have been asking the question: what do you put in the foam to make it so awesome?  Today I would like to share with you the truth about our foam. To start, we mix unicorn dreams and the fluffiest clouds together until it creates a thin paste.

Then we add in cotton candy–for taste of course.

To finish the foam off, we add a little pixie dust–to get the foam extra foamy.

Once completed we have our little elf inspectors make sure the foam is ready for the race. It is a long process, but well worth the time. We want our foam to be perfect for our participants!
