Bubble Run 5K

August 15
9:00 am - 4:00 pm

How does the Bubble Run work? It's pretty simple: Super Simple.

Waves of virginal white runners, walkers, twirlers, dancers or strollers will start every 3-5 minutes. Then, at each kilometer, participants will run through the Bubble Bogs where there is enough colored bubbles and walls of foam to cover you from head to toe!
Each of the four Bubble Bogs along the course are represented by different colored bubbles and foam.
There are a few simple rules.
Rule 1:All levels of runners, walkers, twirlers, dancers and strollers are welcome to the Bubble Run™.
Rule 2: Wear white. That way, your appearance at the finish will be even more pronounced.
Rule 3: Enjoy being a kid again.
