We want to reassure participants that we working on measures to ensure everyone involved in Bubble Rush – staff, volunteers and participants – stays safe.

We want to reassure you that the health and safety of participants, staff and volunteers is always our number one priority. We are working closely with our charity partners and venues to make sure every aspect of the event will comply with the latest guidance and have the necessary hygiene and distancing measures in place.   

If you have taken part in a Bubble Rush before you will see some differences in the event in 2020.  This is so that everyone can take part safely, but still has a great Bubble Rush experience.  

The new measures will include:

  • Changes to the event day check-in process and event start times.
  • Hand sanitizer stations at locations throughout the event village
  • Limiting access to the event village to race goers only
  • Introducing smaller wave numbers to ensure participants have more space in the event village, at the start and when passing through the bubble stations.
  • Pre-event collection of race packs (t-shirts and running numbers) and pre-ordering of merchandise.

Full details will be sent to you in plenty of time for you to plan for your chosen Bubble Rush event.

The UK Government and its expert advisers still regard outdoor events as a low risk environment for spreading the virus.  

The main reason for restricting outdoor events has been to limit the impact on public services, in particular the NHS.  

The virus does not remain ‘viable’ when exposed to sunlight and warm temperatures.

The bubble solution used to create the foam for our events is a mild soapy liquid. Soap is a highly efficient way of killing the virus. 

All our bubble stations and event equipment are cleaned down after each event.

We want to reassure everyone taking part that their health and safety is our absolute number one priority.  We will be taking the following additional measures to reduce the risk of spreading the virus:

Hand cleaning facilities will be provided in the event village, at the bubble stations and the finish line.  We’d advise bubblers to bring their own hand sanitiser too.

We will manage the number of people in the event village to allow plenty of space for participants to keep a social/physical distance.

We will manage the number of people setting off in each start wave to ensure a steady, safe flow of people around the course and through the bubble stations.

Allowing pre-ordering of event merchandise and allowing contactless transactions wherever possible.

Full details of our updated Action Plan for Bubble Rush will be published shortly and will be available on this website and social media.

The current guidance from the UK Government is available here:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/staying-alert-and-safe-social-distancing/staying-alert-and-safe-social-distancing-after-4-july

You can reduce your chances of being infected or spreading COVID-19 by taking some simple precautions:

  • Maintain at least 1 metre distance between yourself and other participants
  • Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitiser
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough begin self isolation and if difficulty breathing, seek medical attention

Every Bubble Rush supports a local charity. That hasn’t changed because of COVID-19, in fact the impact of the current situation on charities means it’s even more important to keep supporting their vital work in our local communities.

There’s no minimum fundraising requirement, but we do ask bubblers to either make a donation or commit to some fundraising as part of their preparation for the event.

 

Please contact the Bubble Rush team.  Our office is currently closed, but you can send an email to info@bubblerush.co.uk and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
