More than 500 people sign up for Leicester’s first Bubble Rush just after registration opens

In just over three weeks, more than 500 people have signed up to our first ever Bubble Rush in Leicester.

The event takes place on Saturday 23 September at Abbey Park. Since registration opened on our Facebook page on Friday 27 January, more than 500 bubblers have already entered. The Bubble Rush is a 5k course of frothy fun. The mountain of foaming multi-coloured bubbles is family and wheelchair friendly. We hope the event will raise at least £50,000 for our work supporting children and young people with life-limiting and terminal illnesses.

Victoria Brunt, Events Coordinator at Rainbows, added: “We are so excited to be launching our first ever Bubble Rush in Leicester. We are amazed by the support we have had so far, to have so many people sign up already is incredible. We have 2,500 places overall and we want the Leicestershire community to get involved.

“You don’t have to run. It’s not about speed or fitness, it’s about celebration, having fun with friends and family and raising a smile for Rainbows.” Entry is £25 for over 16s, £7.50 for under 16s and under 3s go free. For more information and to register, visit
