New Obstacle for 2014: Monkey Business

monkey business yWe’re takin’ care of business, Monkey Style! Introducing the new obstacle for 2014: Monkey Business!

Monkey Business takes your childhood playground Monkey bars to a whole new level. It is a rectangular tower with meshed ropes to form ladders. Use these ropes to climb your way through to the other side. There’s even ropes on the top, so you can crawl across upside-down! Make sure you’ve been working out your arms, because you’ll need the strength to hold on tight. 

Also, don’t forget to give out a little “oo-oo, ah-ah” as you make your way across.

New Obstacles for 2014: The Festival Area- Get Free Tickets!

Have you ever read a book or watched a movie that you just didn’t want to end because it was so good? That’s how we think you’ll feel about Foam Fest. Good news! The fun doesn’t end after you run. After you take on the Death Drop, Lily Pads, and 15+ other obstacles, you and all your biggest fans are invited to the post race party in The Festival Area.

So what is the festival area? It’s filled with more obstacles, food, and merch so it’s pretty much a foamy carnival party. While you’re crawling in mud and sliding through foam, your friends and family can hang here till you meet up with them after the race. It’s the perfect way to let everyone- youngsters and grownups alike- get filthy clean with you on race day!

The best part of all, sign up today and get 14 FREE festival tickets (a $10 value!) with your registration.

The 6 People You’ll Meet at Foam Fest

  road runnerThe Road Runner- Sometimes we wonder if he ever stops running anywhere. From 5k’s to marathons, he’s there. You may even catch him jogging in place in the registration line. He brings the competition and will probably be the first one done in his heat. He gets the self-claimed title of winner, because at Foam Fest everyone gets a medal.freddie frat

Freddie Frat- The college kid, the party guy. He likes the foam that’s in his beer a little more than the foam on the course. Like Ke$ha, the party doesn’t start till he runs in. You’ll catch him with all of his friends, shot gunning a Mike’s Hard at the finish line.

the new girl

The New Girl- She may not have run a 5K before, but the thought of foam and obstacles was too enticing. She’ll let you go first at the top of the Death Drop, because she didn’t think the world record tall slide was really going to be that tall. The thought of all the mud scares her, but by the end of it she’ll love the new dirty look.mud gang

The Mud Mob- Forget the day at the spa, these gals are getting their mud baths at the Foam Fest. They are taking the day off from glamour and getting dirty. They come as a team to help each other in the foamy situations. Plus, you don’t truly know your friends until they are covered in foam.

healthy housewife

The Healthy Homemaker- She’s the Momma bear of family. While trying to keep track of Thing 1 and Thing 2, she’s finding activities that don’t involve video games and junk food for the family. Finally she can let the kids make mud pies and even join in on the fun too.

The Helpless Husband- Fortunately, he was dragged to the race by his wife, the Healthy Homemaker, but it turns out he ends up having a blast! His kids look up to him like a hero as he holds their hand through the mud pools and down the Death Drop. The Foam Fest gets him outta his comfort zone and into the world of active, foamy fun.

Foamy Philanthropy

IMG_1275This was a letter received by Nicole just a few weeks after the LA Foam Fest. Anyone who has lost their license before knows that the chances of getting it back are slim to none, especially between obstacles of mud and foam!

At Foam Fest, we’re all about philanthropy! Every small act of kindness counts. Whether it be helping someone who lost something or just a smile to a stranger, we think being charitable is pretty great.

We love this story because it shows the genuine kindness in the Foamster community. So give someone a little help, or even just give them a smile and in the words of this anonymous letter sender, stay active!
