Bubble Rush 2019

You can still register on the day at the hospice red tent.

Following the huge success of our very first Bubble Rush, East Lancashire Hospice are thrilled to announce that on Saturday 27th April 2019... BUBBLE RUSH IS BACK!!!

Join us for a sponsored bubbly fun at Pleckgate High School, Blackburn where you can run, walk or dance along the route through the colourful foamy bubbles at each of the four ‘bubble stations’.

The course is family friendly and is 5km long altogether, which is made up of 2 x 2.5km laps. So if the full 5km is too daunting or you're not sure the kiddies will make it, then just complete one lap instead and then sit back and relax in the event village which features live music, photo booths, merchandise and fun for all the family.

Check out the official Bubble Rush video below for what you can expect on the day...

We have 2 start times available on the day, so please ensure you sign up on the same one as your friends to avoid disap­po­in­tment. They are:

  • GROOVY GREEN! – 11am start (registration from 9:30am)
  • HELLO YELLOW! – 12pm start (registration from 10:30am)

The registration fee includes a Bubble Rush T-shirt and Medal (children under 3 are FREE, therefore do not receive a t-shirt or medal)... and memories to last a lifetime!

The registration fee goes towards covering the running costs for the event, so we rely on participants to raise sponsorship money in order to help us to continue to care for people with life-limiting illnesses in our community.

Please ensure you read the Terms & Conditions before booking. If you have any questions about the event please email Leanne.green1@eastlancshospice.org.uk or call fundraising on 01254 287 011.Thank you to our supporters:
