RACE DATE & LOCATION Saturday, June 27, 2015 Hill Top Resort Highway 59 Beaconia, Manitoba R0E 0T0 PARKING When you arrive on site you will follow the signs to the designated parking area. Arrive early because parking is limited. Parking is $10.00 per vehicle, so please carpool if you can. We accept Cash ONLY so be sure to hit the bank machine before you come. REGISTRATION After Parking, please follow the signage or (in some cases) take the event bus to the Race Festival Zone and Registration. Registration will be clearly marked. To get you through registration as quickly as possible proceed to the registration tents as you registered. If you are part of a TEAM or FAMILY registration go with your whole group to the Team & Family tent. If you registered as an individual proceed to the tent marked with the letter from your last name. The registration team will take care of you from there, checking you in & getting you all sorted for the day! Please print out the waiver form found on the website specific to your run location. There will be a limited amount of waivers at the event for those without a printer, but doing this before will speed up the process. When you arrive, the Registration team will prepare your paperwork and assign a bib #. After registration, please feel free to mingle about the festival area and wait for your heat. If there are still openings, registration will be open online till midnight the night before. Registering online will get you a lower price and guarantee your spot in the fun run! We do take day-­‐of registrations on site, so tell your friends. We can not guarantee wave times for day-­‐of registrants but will do our best to have your friends run as close to your start time as possible. We suggest registering early. RACE DETAILS During the race, there are Hydration Stations, Washrooms and lots of staff on hand to answer any questions you may have. The whole course is marked with tape, so as long as you stay in the tape you won’t get lost or end up in a place you might not want to be. You better plan on the foam, mud and water being a part of the course. The waves begin at 8am and run every 15 minutes until 3pm (last wave). There are up to 150 people in each wave. The heat will gather 10 minutes prior to their start times in the starting corral before having the foamiest start you have ever seen! You will get a brief introduction on the course, a group stretch, fun activities and race rules. The race is 5km long and features 16+ obstacles including: Foam Start Spiderweb Forest Body Washer Tube Town Lily Pads Stop, Drop and Roll Slip and Slide Chamber of Foam Mocha Pit Monkey Business Up and Over Cargo Net Log Roll Climbing Walls Death Drops What if I am too scared to do an obstacle? We have staff and volunteers scattered throughout the mud run course that are ready to leap into action and help you through the obstacle, but if you feel you shouldn't do an obstacle for any reason, our staff will help you around it. If you are worried about the foam, it is just air mixed with less than 1% of an environmentally friendly all natural foam solution. Made from natural oils, the foam should not cause irritation of any sort. Still, we encourage participants to NOT leave the foam on their body for an extended period of time. We also recommend that you do not inhale, ingest or get the foam in your eyes. Age restrictions All children must be physically, mentally, and emotionally capable to complete the course with proper racing etiquette. Ages 9 and under will not be able to participate in the 5k but we would love to have them join us for our pre and post-­‐race activities such as our foam pit and bounce house! Ages 10 – 12 can register for the 5k race but must run with a registered adult. Ages 13+ can run in the 5k race without an adult chaperone but must adhere to all race rules and regulations.

Course Times and Festival Info If you are looking to beat a world record or run so hard that you nearly lose bowel control then you might be disappointed. The 5K FoamFest is not a hardcore race it is a FUNCORE race. The goal is to have fun while running. We will have a race clock at the end of the race so you can internally take note how fast you ran the race but you will not be given timing chips and we encourage you to focus on the fun aspect of the race rather than the speed. We've got several activities in our festival area for all ages. We even have activities for the kids at heart! Like our Skyfall to test your nerves, and Foam Pit. Expect fun snacks and exciting action while waiting for your start time at 5k FoamFest. Children 9 and under have free all day access to the festival area as do all participants. FESTIVAL AREA INCLUDES: • Complimentary Change Rooms for Men and Women • Complimentary Gear Check, you can bring a change of clothes and personal belongings.

Electronics, foam and mud don't mix. This is a Foam Fun Run, the kind of race that involves a lot of mud and water, which will result in most devices getting damaged. We advise you to leave all electronics in the car or at home. However, other than this warning we won’t stop you from bringing them with you, but you do so at your own risk.
