$24 for One 5K Bubble Run Entry (Up to $50 Value)

On Saturday, May 11, runners, walkers, and meanderers gather downtown to traverse 5 kilometers marked by bogs filled with nontoxic colored bubbles. The first wave sets off at 8 a.m. with waves following every three to five minutes until all the racers are moving. Race registration includes a Bubble Run shirt, race number, Bubble Run tattoo, Bubble Run headband, and credit for a charitable donation. The Bubble Run organizers recommend that participants wear white clothing to accentuate the colors of the bubbles. See the FAQ page for further details.

The Bubble Run

Like a city street after every nearby car wash has malfunctioned, The Bubble Run welcomes participants to play in light, glistening foam. Runners, walkers, jumpers, and skippers cruise their way through five easygoing, untimed kilometers, each marked with a 6-foot-deep bog brimming with colorful foam and floating bubbles. Bubbleteers armed with foam-slinging cannons ensure that each adventurer receives a healthy dose of bubbles as they pass, running safely thanks to the dry makeup of the foam solution used. Racers clad in white may start clean as a whistle, but by the time they cross the finish line, they’re dyed like a rainbow, finally readying them to sneak up on a leprechaun. Then the fun keeps going—live DJs and bubble cannons amp up afterparties to celebrate runners' efforts. Proceeds from each race benefit local charities.

One of the best 5ks I have been to!!! Fun and well organized!!! Will do it again!!
Stacey H. · December 22, 2013
The bubble run was one of the best experiences I've ever had! This was mine and my best friends (whom I've been best friends with since middle school)first 5k together. It is a memory that we will both cherish for the rest of our lives. It was a very well organized event and we will be looking forward to any bubble run that comes through Arizona again.

The bubbles were great for the kids. Although the bubbles do come high enough to cover small children's heads. I had a lot of fun & they posted pics of everyone running through the bubbles.
