Following the phenomenal success of this years event, Cransley Hospice are delighted to announce the BUBBLE RUSH 2019 at Wicksteed Park on Saturday 18th May 2019.

Bubblers can walk, run, dance or slide their way through the thrilling 5k course as they are blasted with colourful foamy bubbles at each of the four bubble stations. The course is pushchair and wheelchair friendly and families with children of all ages will delight at this unique experience! 5k too much to handle? Dont worry the flexible 2.5k lap means that participants can just tackle the half-distance and then enjoy everything the event-village has to offer!

Bubbles are not just for bath-time and we can guarantee every bubbler will leave with a medal, a t-shirt and a huge smile on their faces. The Bubble Rush atmosphere is infectious and you will have a day out to remember for years to come!

Where could you finish?

We’ll work out your time based on past results, elevation and terrain.

What’s Included
Your entry fee includes a white t-shirt to wear through the bubbles.

Every Bubbler finishing the course gets a Bubble Rush medal.

Bubble Rush is a sponsored event, so please include some fundraising as part of your preparation for the run. Each Bubble Rush helps a local hospice to care for people with life-limiting and terminal conditions. You will receive information and tips to help your fundraising efforts from the hospice after you’ve signed up for the event.
Course Details
The course is a 2.5k lap, meaning you’ll get two chances to go through each Bubble station. Double bubble – what’s not to like about that!
Raceday Logistics
Each event starts with a group warm up to get you in the mood for bubbles, then you set off in a sea of foam. It can take up to an hour to complete the course, depending on how much fun you’re having in the bubbles!

At the end of the course pick up your Bubble Rush medal and have your picture taken.

This is not a race, it is not timed and it is definitely more about having fun than setting a personal best. However if you want to clock your time please feel free to use your favourite running app or watch.

Kit List
You can wear whatever you like – but be aware that the coloured foam can stain clothing so we recommend that you don’t come along in your best clothes. We definitely encourage colourful fancy dress! We will be launching a range of Bubble Rush merchandise like tutus, headbands and sunglasses in 2018, which will be available from your hospice and on sale on the day of the run.

You may also want to wear something that will help protect your eyes while running through the bubble stations. If you’re bringing kids with you, please pack some swimming goggles for them – since the bubbles will probably be deeper than they are tall!

A small back pack that you can take with you around the course to carry goggles, water and some old towels to clean up excess foam. We suggest bringing a change of clothes and shoes, as well as a towel, so you can dry down after the event.
Whats in the foam?
The foam mixture we use is completely safe. The dye in the foam gives vibrant colours, however it is a food dye and is water soluble so it’s environmentally friendly too. In fact the creamy foam has the same viscosity as water and does not contain any soap at all. It is safe for people with nut allergies and gluten intolerance.

Slight stinging in your eyes may occur, however the pH balance is very low. Just be careful when wiping your eyes with your hands if they have frothy suds all over them. We suggest you pack an old towel to take around with you to remove excess foam after you’ve finished in the bubbles, and having some extra towels in the car for the journey home – or better still a change of clothes!

We have tested the foam mixture on all manner of humans without issue. The mixture that we use is drier than most foam; therefore you won’t be soaked and won’t be slipping around in the foam.

How deep is the foam?
The bubble stations can be filled to a depth of 4 feet, so we recommend that you carry small children, hold the hand of older children and that they wear eye protection – swimming goggles are fine!

Can children take part in Bubble Rush ?
Kids love Bubble Rush! They are very welcome long as they can manage the distance and can finish the event. Children under 16 must be accompanied around the course by a parent, guardian or responsible adult.

For their safety you should hold your the hand of any child under 5 when walking through the foam. Younger children can be carried.

Can we take part with a pushchair?
No problem! The foam is completely safe but just be aware that the foam could stain the
fabric – so it’s OK to park up and carry your little ones through the foam.

Can I run with a dog?
Sorry, no. The Bubble Rush team loves dogs but only as spectators, and they must be kept on a lead at all times. For the safety of all Bubblers we cannot allow any animals on the course and for hygiene reasons they must not go into the foam. This includes dogs being carried.

Our course marshalls and Bubble Team members will ask anyone with a dog to stay out of the foam.
