Foam fest packed with racers in Nanoose Bay

Obstacle course covers participants in water and foam

Hundreds of people were lined up to take part in the Nanaimo 5K Foam Fest, taking place in Nanoose Bay on Saturday, June 10.

The event had participants run, jog or walk a five kilometre race, but the real appeal of the event was clearly the foam and the obstacles. There were slides, foam pits, bouncy obstacles and what organizers say is the largest inflatable waterslide in the world.

Many finished the race soaked and smiling.
