What happens at Bubble Rush?

The Bubble Rush is not your average 5k fun run.  At every kilometre point there’ll be a bubble station where one of our high-powered foam cannons will be blowing out 30 cubic metres a minute of frothy colourful bubbles to make a 4ft bubble wall! 

Our trained team of 'Bubble Blasters' will control the foam cannons to make sure you get completely covered in coloured foam. And this fabulous foaming 5K fun run will be great for all the family whether you are a regular runner or have never run at all before… you can run, walk, skip or dance the 5K course.

We have 2 “waves” for you to choose from at both the Derby and Leicester events, please see the times below:

  • Yellow Wave warm up starts at 10.30am and the run starts at 11am.
  • Green Wave warm up starts at 11.30am and the run starts at 12pm.

You can run on your own, as a family, with friends or colleagues as a way to support Rainbows, or do it in memory of someone who has brought colour into your life; and our route is child-friendly, suitable for wheelchairs (not electric) and pushchairs - meaning all the family can get involved! But we do suggest having a rain cover on your wheelchairs and pushchairs, while little children are advised to wear swimming goggles when going through the bubbles to protect their eyes.

Along with enjoying a bubblicious family fun run, by taking part in the event you'll get to enjoy:

  • live entertainment throughout the day
  • the bubble event village where you can visit stalls, take photos in the selfie tent, purchase delicious food and colourful merchandise

Each participant on the day will also receive a free Bubble Rush t-shirt and medal, so make sure you select the size of your t-shirt when booking (and to collect these on the day).


  • Adults 16 and over - £25.00
  • Children (4 - 15) - £7.50

Children aged 3 and under go free (but please register the number of under 3's taking part) - they will not receive a medal or t-shirt. If you would like them to have a medal and t-shirt please register them as a child aged 15 or under.
