East London Bubble Rush
Sun, May 21, 2017, 12:00 PM – 5:00 PM BST
Four London Hospices are coming together to put on the first ever East London Bubble Rush at the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Sunday 21 May 2017. The Bubble Rush is a brand new concept of 5k runs that has been created to have a good clean run with four fun bubble stations along the way. This is an event not to be missed!
Bubble Rush is a fun run with a difference – it features lots of coloured bubbles!
The 5k course starts in a sea of bubbles and features four Bubble Stations along the route where our cannons pump out coloured bubbles. The course is family friendly, so you can run, jog, walk or toddle through the foam. You can even dance if you want to! The most important thing is that you enjoy your time in the bubbles.
Don’t worry if you are not a runner because the course is not timed. Bubblers do it for fun with friends and children – and everyone gets a medal at the end.
Check out this gallery to get an idea of what it's like to take part in the frothiest event in the world.
