Over 1,100 people set for foam-tastic fun at Norwich Bubble Rush

May 02, 2019

There are just two weeks left to secure your place in the bubble bonanza set to wash over Norwich.

Bubble Rush is a 5k fun run with a difference as participants head off amongst a sea of bubbles, before passing four bubble stations where cannons pump out coloured foam to create a four-foot (1.2-metre) deep bubble bath!

The event was held in Norwich for the first time last year, raising over £40,000 for EACH.

EACH will again be the beneficiary when it returns to Earlham Park on Saturday, 18 May. Runners will go off in two waves, with the first starting at 11am and the second at noon. Final spaces are available until midnight on Thursday, 16 May.

Emma Benstead, EACH Norfolk Events Fundraiser, said: “After such a brilliant event last year, we’re really excited to have so many people returning for round two. If you weren’t there last year and are wondering what to expect, Bubble Rush is a spectacular sight and a whole lot of fun. There’s no race element, so participants are free to run, jog, walk, dance or toddle through the foam. It’s a completely natural and safe mixture.”

Alongside the course will be lots of merchandise, catering and other amusements, making it a proper family day out.

Emma added: “Registration fees help cover the costs of your participation, so we’d like everyone to raise as much money as possible.

“All proceeds from the Norwich Bubble Rush will go towards the nook appeal, our campaign to raise £10 million and build a new hospice in Framingham Earl, transforming children’s palliative care for Norfolk.

“Come along and soak up the colourful atmosphere!”

The Norwich Bubble Rush is being sponsored by Bateman Groundworks and also supported by Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure and One Broker.

Tickets have been sold in phases and the remaining batch are £24 for those aged 16 and over, £10 for children, £62 for families of at least two adults and two children, and £22 per person for teams of six people or more.

All entrants will receive a T-shirt and medal. Children aged under four can take part for free. Those aged under 16 must be accompanied by a paying adult.
