Bubble Run – Philadelphia
Chester, PA, United States

If youve done a traditional 5K, you know they can be a bit lackluster. But the BUBBLE RUN is like running through Willy Wonkas factory. Clad in white t-shirts, adults, kids and strollers run, walk, dance and play across 3 miles of absolute fun! Waves start every 3-5 minutes. Then, at each kilometer, participants will run through the Foam Bogs where there is enough colored foam to cover you from head to toe!
