Event description


Brand new for Bury St Edmunds....

Bubble Rush is coming to Nowton Park on Sunday 29 July 2018 for the first time ever!

Bubble Rush is a fantastic, fun-filled, family event in which anyone of any age can take part.

The 5k fabulously frothy event features five ‘bubble stations’ with cannons, blasting participants with crazy-coloured bubbles and covering you in safe, frothy foam!

Each station jets out different coloured bubbles and unique music to listen to as you run, walk or dance along the route.

Before registering, please take a few minutes to read our Terms and Conditions.

If you have any more questions about this brilliantly bubbly event, please see below.

Where do I go when I arrive?

We advise that you arrive 30 minutes before your wave sets off to give you plenty of time to register and warm up.

Registration and the start/finish line are located near the main entrance to the park. Entry to the park is via the main gate on Nowton Road.

Are there any lockers/storage facilities to leave things at the start?

No, please ensure you keep valuables and monies safe at all times during the event. In no event shall Zest be liable for participants/spectators property.

Will there be toilets?

Toilet facilities are available at the cafe. There will also be portaloo’s available to use during the event.

Will it be safe?

Zest is working in conjunction with Extreme Adventure Ltd and Forest Heath District and St Edmundsbury Borough councils to ensure all aspects of the event are made safe. The bubbles do not contain any chemicals; the colorants are food colourings and are biodegradable. Zest hires Woodbridge Medical Services who take care of the first aid provisions during the event.

The Bubble Rush race course is approximately 5km. It is not a race and is a non- competitive, non-timed event. Participants can walk, jog or run and bypass bubble stations if necessary. Please wear sensible footwear.

Participants aged 16 years and under must take part alongside a paying adult and be accompanied throughout the event. School and youth groups who take part must have adequate supervision. Upon running through the Bubble Stations, all children must be accompanied by an adult who will be responsible for their safety.

On no account is alcohol to be brought into the event site or consumed during the event. Zest reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone under the influence of alcohol.

Is the route wheelchair and buggy friendly?

Yes it is. Those who are in wheelchairs or have buggies are welcome to take part. However due to the nature of the event, the location and some uneven terrain at Nowton Park, we would advise to contact Zest prior to booking for more details.

Please attach the rain cover on your pushchair if walking through bubbles.

If you would like to discuss anything further, please call 01473 723600 or email zest.bubblerush@stelizabethhospice.org.uk

What do I need to wear?

Due to the ingredients used for the dyes in the bubbles, these may stain clothing. It is the participant’s responsibility to come suitably dressed for the event. The event organisers take no responsibility for colour stains on any shoes or clothing. Refer to the Terms and Conditions.

Will there be any refreshments?

Refreshments will be available to buy and you are welcome to bring along a picnic to enjoy and make a day of it.

No animals are allowed to take part or accompany participants along the route. If bringing a dog, please keep it on a lead and away from the Bubble Rush Course.
