    What is ColorFoam5k Run all about?

    ColorFoam5k was created to promote health and wellness and bring the community together to support local charities. ColorFoam5k is about people being healthy and having fun while doing it.

    We are not about catering to the extreme athlete, but more about giving you a glorious foamy experience like never before. ColorFoam5k is a 5k, un-timed race in which thousands of participants run through different colored foam and get blasted with colored water. The foam and color is eco friendly and safe.

    Who is ColorFoam5k for?

    ColorFoam5k participants come in all ages, shapes, sizes, and reasons for running. There are no winners or losers and no “official” times. ColorFoam5k is fun for the entire family!

    Paying It Forward

    ColorFoam5k also focuses on giving back. We know your community is important and that is why we give a portion of the profits back to a charity in your community.
