Bubble Rush is back!
Our Bubble Rush event is back for the second year. We’re looking for families to take on our most colourful fundraising event, involving people of all ages and abilities running or walking through walls of bubbles at the scenic High Woods Country Park in Colchester.
The event begins at 12pm on Saturday 11th June and will see participants walk, jog or run a 5km route with a difference. Each runner will encounter five ‘bubble stations’ where they will run through walls of colourful bubbles while high powered ‘bubble cannons’ blow out 30 cubic metres of bubbles a minute aimed at participants.
This year’s event will see even more bubbles, with fun activities for supporters and participants. It is a great chance to make some memories with friends and all the family.
Registration closes on the 10th June and the early bird discounted entry fee ends on the 11th April at 5pm. Participants under the age of four can join in for just £3 and all other participants will receive a t-shirt with their entry and a medal for taking part. This year, we have introduced a new family rate.
There is no minimum sponsorship amount however we’re asking participants to help raise funds which will go towards the £8.7 million we need each year to provide our care services for free to the local community.
Carla Reeves took part in the 2015 event with her husband and two children and says: “We all loved going through each set of bubbles - that was the best part, and the children loved trying to guess what the next colour would be. We’re definitely taking part again this year as we had so much fun last time!”
Fliss Strode, Events Manager says: “We had such great feedback from last year’s Bubble Rush event that we just had to bring it back for a second year! This event will be bigger and brighter than before with lots of fun activities for spectators and participants at the starting point. Bubble Rush is an event for the whole family. Even buggies and wheelchairs can be taken around the course. We want to see as many people joining in the fun as possible.”
