This 2.5k course gives runners the chance to take on each bubble station twice!
The event starts with a foam sea before you take on the 4 coloured bubble stations, where epic foam cannons create a 4ft bubble bath.
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!
