Bubble Rush is coming back to Leicester, on Saturday 22 September 2018... and you won't want to miss this fantastic family-friendly 5K event.

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, 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).

Prices on the day:

  • Adults 16 and over - £30.00
  • Children (4 - 15) - £10.00

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.

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!

We will also have lots of fun and crazy accessories available to buy so that you can run through the foam in style.  

The coloured foam may stain your clothes so please make sure you do not wear anything valuable or that you wouldn’t want to get damaged.  We would suggest that you bring a change of clothes for after the event, as well as a towel so that you can dry off.
