The frothiest 5k is coming back to York!

Bubble Rush is a fun run with a difference – lots of coloured bubbles! You’ll start in a sea of foam and then take on four different coloured bubble stations, where foam canons create an incredi-bubble 4ft bubble bath!

Run, walk, toddle or dance your way around the family-friendly course.  Don’t worry if you’re not a runner – the event isn’t timed so you’re not racing against anyone and there’s no time limit.  The course is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs, and there’s no minimum or maximum age limit, so everyone can take part.

The event isn’t timed, so you’re not racing against anyone and there’s no time limit. 

The Route

Bubble Rush is for everyone!

Bubble Rush is perfect for families and groups of all ages and abilities.

 The course is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs, and there’s no minimum or maximum age limit.

The course is two laps of 2.5km, meaning that you’ll go through each bubble station twice – that’s DOUBLE the BUBBLES!

Bubble Rush - York is raising funds for Marie Curie

Our charity partner for Bubble Rush – York is Marie Curie.

Across the Vale of York our Marie Curie nurses work tirelessly to give people living with a terminal illness the care and support they need to achieve the best end of life experience possible. Our team of nurses cover the whole of North Yorkshire visiting homes in the community to provide this bespoke care.

 As 10pm approaches our nurses are finalising their journeys across York to reach those that desperately need their support. Often met with a sigh of relief, the families welcome the nurse into their homes. Our nurses ensure the patient is comfortable and the family is able to get some much-needed respite throughout the night.

 At Marie Curie we need your help. Research shows that one in four people in the UK miss out on the vital care they need at the end of life. This is often due to lack of awareness, lack of knowledge of how to access support and gaps in services. In York there are around 1,400 people who don’t receive the palliative care that they desperately need.

The right care means everything to families living with a terminal illness. With your support we can be there for more families in York when we’re needed most. 

We would be delighted if you could include some fundraising or make a donation to show your support for the charity.  Your ticket price only covers the cost of putting on the event.  However, all proceeds from fundraising, individual and corporate sponsorship and event day activities including bag drop and merchandise sales will go directly to the charity.
