5K Root Beer Foam Fest
As part of the annual Arnold Days celebration, the 5K Root Beer Foam Fest sends sports drinks to the sidelines in favor of—what else?—root beer. Along a route that winds through Arnold City Park, water- and root-beer-chugging stations keep runners and walkers fueled for the 5-kilometer jaunt. A foam-pit finish line awaits at the course's end, welcoming participants into a post-race party with root beer drinks, breakfast foods, and a photographer documenting the day's events. But it's not all foam and games: serious racers can compete for awards, which are given to the top performers in seven different age groups.
