There's an epic foam obstacle course near Calgary this summer

Get ready to get muddy, the 5K Foam Fest is coming this summer.

The 5K Foam Fest boasts 22 of the best and most exciting obstacles around including the worlds largest inflatable waterslide, slip and slides, and mucky mud pits.

Combine these obstacles with 2.5 million cubic feet of foam that is pumped out at each event, and chances are you’ll be enjoying an epic summer day.

This year, the event takes place just outside of Calgary in Red Deer, and foamy runners will get to enjoy live DJs and a vendor village.

If you miss out on the Red Deer event, the race will also visit Leduc and Medicine Hat — it may be a somewhat longer road trip, but that’s all part of the fun anyway.

And it’s all for a good cause. The family fun event supports the Make A Wish Foundation.
