St Ives Showground is once again transforming into a one-of-a-kind obstacle course with 22 obstacles and 2.5 million cubic feet of fabulous foam to run through.
The 5K Foam Fest is returning on Saturday 3 February 2024 at St Ives Oval. As the world’s number one fun run for ages 7 and up, this event offers activities for all ages and abilities.
Run, walk, slip and slide your way through the best and most exciting obstacles including the death drop mega slide, mud crawl, slip n’ slide, rope climb and more. Combine these with 2.5 million cubic feet of foam at the start and finish lines, and mid-course in the chamber of foam and foam zone, and the stage is set for foam-filled fun.
Children aged 6 and under can take part too with a free Kid’s Fun Zone including a mini-inflatable obstacle course and a bounce house. Post-race, the whole family can celebrate in the festival village with delicious food from local vendors, awesome music from live DJs and a well-stocked beer garden for the adults.
Each registration includes your run, buff, string bag, finisher’s medal, race bib, temporary tattoo, water stations, shower stations and free events photos for download. Don’t forget a spare change of clothes as you’re guaranteed to be foamy, muddy and wet at the end of the race.
The 5K Foam Fest is proud to support the work of Make-A-Wish granting wishes to children and teens fighting critical illnesses. Participants can support them too by making a donation or creating an individual or team fundraising page.
And for those concerned, it’s also no problem for our Ku-ring-gai environment. “The foam is all natural and fully biodegradable. It’s approved for use in conservation areas – it poses no harm to the planet, wildlife or waterways. We love our fun but we love our planet too!” say the Foam Fest organisers.
