Bubble Rush is a fun run with a difference – it’s not a race! Run, walk, jog, skip or toddle your way around our family-friendly course and take on four coloured bubble stations filled with foamy fun. The course is two laps, so you can have double the incredi-bubble fun!

Bubble Rush’s foamy run is suitable for the whole family – there’s no age limit and the course is pushchair and wheelchair friendly so everyone can take part in our bubbly activities!

Wave times

There are two wave times for you to choose from. We ask that you arrive one hour prior to your wave time to check in and warm up before it starts.
