Bubbles, coloured foam and a fun run for all the family- What to expect as a first-time Bubbler
We can’t wait to welcome you to the fun run through coloured bubbles. If you’re a first time ‘bubbler’ and are wondering what you’ve let yourself in for here’s our quick guide to the foamy 5k.
What’s not to love about running, walking or dancing through a 4ft bubble bath?
Whatever your reason for signing up to take part in Bubble Rush we want you to have a memorable day. If you’re new to running there’s no need to panic about being race ready, you’re not racing against the clock. If you’re giving the kids a first attempt at a 5k you can take it at their pace, there’s no pressure to run. If your motivation is to raise money for charity, we can assure you that the fun-run through coloured bubbles is not your typical fundraising event. Don’t be daunted by the distance – as it’s a two lap course you can choose to finish after 2.5km and still get your medal: everyone who crosses the finish line in a Bubble Rush t-shirt gets a medal, because you’re all incredi-bubble!
Look the part!
There’s no dress code at Bubble Rush – but colourful outfits are positively encouraged. Your t-shirt will be white when you start, but you’ll finish all colours of the rainbow! You can pre-order colourful Bubble Rush merchandise when you sign up, and there will be some on sale in the event village too. So you can rock a pair of sunglasses, a colourful headband or even a sun visor to really look the part!
Get ready to bubble…
Shortly before your start time, we’ll call you into the start zone to prepare you for the bubbles. Here you’ll get the essential health and safety briefing (please listen carefully) and join in a short warm-up routine to get the muscles warmed up. This won’t be strenuous, but it’s always advisable to do some gentle stretches to get your body ready to bubble!
Then it’s time for everyone to head over to the start line. That’s where you’ll first encounter the bubbles. The countdown starts, the klaxon goes and then comes the best bit – heading out to take on the coloured bubbles! Around the course, you’ll encounter our four colourful bubble stations filled with pink, blue, yellow and green bubbles. The bubble stations are giant inflatables filled up to 4 feet deep with bright coloured foam. It’s a two lap course, so you go through each station twice for double the bubbly fun.
Once you’ve crossed the finish line you’ll pick up your medal. Then it’s time to pose for some ‘after-the-bubbles’ photos and celebrate your achievement – you’ve just done a 5k!
