Starting off in a sea of foam, this 2.5k course gives runners the chance to take on each bubble station twice, with runners completing 2 laps to total 5k.
After running through the sea of foam you head towards the 4 coloured bubble stations, where epic foam cannons create a 4ft bubble bath for you to wade through.
Entrants will get really bubble-y and potentially wet so you might want to bring a change of clothes and towels to mop up the multicoloured bubbles!
