The Bubble Rush - Sunday 2nd October

All the information you need to know for on the day...

Parking and registration

Limited free parking is available at Heron Drive, TA1 5HA, where Marshals will direct you (parking will not be available at the Hospice). If this parking becomes full, the marshals will be able to advise of other town centre car parks which are free on a Sunday.

After parking, please report to the registration area at the barn in Longrun Meadow, which will be signposted. To register, all you need to do is let our Events Team know your name.  

Registration is open an hour before your start time and will close after 45 minutes.

Please ensure you arrive in plenty of time to park and register, as you will need to be ready to start the run on time. You will not be able to change your run time on the day.

When you register you will be given your free t-shirt. You will also have the opportunity to decorate your t-shirt with clothes pens, so you can dedicate the run to someone special or simply jazz your t-shirt up in your team colours.

The run

You will get wet! Please make sure you bring a towel to sit on for your journey home.

Your safety is paramount. We have put everything in place to ensure you have a wonderful day. In case of an emergency please report to the registration barn. We will be closing the event at 4pm.

Dogs are not allowed to take part in the Bubble Rush. They are very welcome on site but must be kept on a lead, and please remember your poop bags!                        

Don't forget to collect your goody bag and medal at the end of your run.

Merchandise and refreshments

Some delicious refreshments, colourful merchandise and various activities will be available on the day so please bring cash. You may wish to bring a bottle of water to ensure you stay hydrated.

Please note that the eastern side of the park is a nature conservation area, so we ask that you are respectful of your environment. Please take any litter home with you or use the bins provided.
