Leicester Bubble Rush

The bubbles are back... but in a new city! Join us at this year's Rainbows Bubble Rush!

Please note, this event has been organised by a third party to support Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.

Our Bubble Rush is back this summer... with a new location.

The Bubble Rush is not your average 5K fun run. At every kilometre point there's a bubble station where one of our high-powered foam cannons will be blowing out 30 cubic metres a minute of frothy colourful bubbles, as they create a 4ft bubble wall for you to run through!

Our trained team of 'Bubble Blasters' will control the foam cannons to make sure you get completely covered in coloured foam, turning you into the colour of the rainbow as your make your way around. And this fabulous foaming 5K fun run will be great for all family, whether you're a regular runner or never ran before... as you can run, walk, skip or hop your way around the course.

With two waves available you're guaranteed to have a bubbly-good time.

Take part with friends, your family, colleagues or do it in memory of someone who has brought colour into your life. Our route is child-friendly, suitable for wheelchairs (not electric) and pushchairs - although we do recommend rain covers on both! Little children are also advised to wear swimming goggles when going through the bubbles, to protect their eyes.

Along with enjoying the 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

Everyone taking part in the event will also receive a free Bubble Rush t-shirt and finishers medal, so make sure you select the size of your t-shirt when booking (and don't forget to collect these on the day!)

What is Bubble Rush?

Bubble Rush is a fun run, walk or jog around a 5K route. During the course there will be four bubble stations filled with bright colour bubbles - up to four foot high. At each station our trained 'Bubble Blasters' will be on hand to control the foam cannons, making sure you get completely covered in the coloured foam.

Is the Bubble Rush a race?

Nope, no and not at all! There's no competition and no timings. Bubble Rush is all about FUN! This means you can walk, run, jog, skip or dance your way around the course at a pace that suits you and ensure you have maximum fun.

Who can take part in the Bubble Rush?

As a family-friendly* event, Bubbble Rush is  is open to all ages - and we're cetain that everyone, young and old will enjoy every minute of it.

All we ask is that you keep hold of little ones, particularly as you go through the bubbles. We'd also advise that children wear swimming goggles to protect their eyes.

* while it is family-friendly, pets aren't permitted to go around the course.

Is the event wheelchair and pushchair friendly?

Pushchairs and wheelchairs (not electric) are safe to go through the bubble stations - but we strongly recommend you use protective covers. With the route incorporating grass there are times when it may be uneven and challenging too - but nothing that cannot be overcome by bringing someone along to help.

Are the bubbles dangerous?

The bubbles are completely safe, water soluble and environmentally friendly.  While there may be a slight stinging of the eyes, the PH balance of the foam is very low so this shouldn't be a problem, and there's also paper towels at the end of each bubble station should you need them to wipe your face / hands.

Please be aware there's a chance that the foam may stain some lighter coloured pushchairs and clothes, so we always advise to bring a towel or a change of clothes

What do I wear?

You can wear whatever you like– the crazier the better! Children are advised to wear swimming goggles to protect their eyes, and don't forget you will be given a white Bubble Rush T-shirt before the event to wear - helping you to look like a human rainbow as you cross the finish line!
