365 Sports brings 5K Foam Fest to Leduc!

Wednesday, June 14, 2017

365 Sports Inc. is proud to be bringing the 5k Foam Fest to Leduc for the very first time! In partnership with Leduc Recreation Centre, 365 Sports Inc. are thrilled to draw thousands to Leduc for the biggest, foamiest Canada Day celebration Alberta has ever seen! Through last year’s Foam Fests nationwide, 365 Sports Inc. was able to donate $35,000 to Habitat for Humanity and thousands of pounds of food to the local Food Bank.

"We are thrilled to partner with the City of Leduc & the Leduc Recreation Center to bring the 5K Foam Fest to Canada's 150th Birthday Party. It’s fitting to have Canada's number 1 Fun Run included in such an amazing celebration. There will be no shortage of fun in Leduc with the Foam Fest in town. We plan to have festive red and white foam, kids free fun zone, a beer garden for adults, sky fall...all capped off with a concert from 5:00-10:45 pm followed by the province’s best firework display. We have partnered with local hotels and want to make this a fun weekend for all local families and encourage people from outside of Leduc to join us for an amazing weekend!” – Mike Lambert, Marketing Director, 365 Sports Inc.

With over 22 unique and exhilarating obstacles, athletes and novices alike can participate alongside each other. Bring your family, your folks, and your force to form a fashionably festooned foam fest faction! 365 Sports Inc. prides itself on the global appeal of the Foam Fest providing good clean fun for participations at every level of fitness. The Foam Fest is a non-competitive obstacle course that is suitable for participants 8 years of age and up. Participants receive a race bib, tattoo, water, medal, beach towel and more. Many participants use 5K Foam Fest as a fundraiser forming a team to run for their favourite cause.

The festival is inclusive and open to everyone. Both participants and spectators are welcome to partake in the events activities, featuring a kids’ zone, a 20-foot “sky fall” drop onto a stunt bag, bouncy castles, the world’s tallest portable inflatable water slide, food and drink vendors, and an on-site DJ. Running or not, there truly is something for everyone.

This is the fourth year of 5k Foam Fest in Canada, and the first time in Leduc! It’s the perfect place to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday! (We’ve even got the red & white foam!) With the run extending to the USA this year, momentum for spring & summer’s 2017 tour is already building. Runners can take advantage of early bird pricing for the reduced rate of $67.00. Price increases up to $72 as the event draws closer. There is also a special family rate for families of 4-5 members of $200.00.

Based on current interest levels, 365 Sports Inc. anticipates 70,000 participants nationwide with 7,000 in Leduc alone. The Leduc Foam Fest draws crowds from the entire interior of Alberta and tourists from all over the country.
