Because paint is so cliche.
5K Foam Obstacle Course Is Coming To Quebec

We've all seen the standard 5K races. You cover yourself in mud, paint, and sweat (obviously) and run for the finish line like a complete and total maniac. It looks like a good time, although it seems like it's only for the most hardcore individuals, as pictured below.

So for us average folk, and by that I mean those of use who will do 50 sit ups just so we can eat a bag of Doritos without shame, these races can be a bit daunting. Luckily, Foam Fest 5K had us in mind when creating their obstacle course.

True to their name, Foam Fest 5K does in fact cover you in foam while you run. However, bubble covered fun is not the only draw to their race. There's an obstacle course made up of over 20+ barriers to go through, with everything from a mud crawl to a cargo climb.

But the real goal of this race is not to show off how many obstacles you can tackle, or how big your biceps are, but instead, it's a chance to have a good time. "The goal is to have fun while running. We will have a race clock at the beginning and 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."


The race arrives in Mont Avila, on September 12th. Check out the 5K Foam Fest website to learn more and sign up for tickets!

This rise in temperature in Montreal is attributed to new weather patterns, causing scorching temperatures in June, August, September and October. "August and October were record-breaking months," said Environment Canada spokesperson Simon Legault.
