Dubai to host ‘Big Bubble Run’



The UAE has gone running mad. If it isn’t a marathon, a half marathon or a 10k, it’s a fun run. Following on from the likes of the Color Run (which is in Abu Dhabi later this year) and Electric Run, the so-called “Big Bubble Run” is set to make its Dubai debut.

In what is being billed as “Dubai’s first ever foam race”, people will have to walk, jog or run their way through a 5k course filled with, you guessed it, loads of bubbles. Cannons shoot foam across the crowds and create massive foamy zones to run through.

The Big Bubble Run is already huge in America, with fun runs taking place across many of the states. Las Vegas, Nashville, Denver, Indianapolis, Portland, Seattle and Washington are just a few cities gearing up to host another bubble run this year.

So far, there hasn’t been much information released about the Dubai race, but we do know that it’s likely to take place on April 8 this year. A Facebook event has been set up, and already 6,3000 people have registered their interest and 1,400 people have said that they’re going.

The description reads: “Become a part of the regions only foam bubble 5km fun run, it’s all fun, smiles and laughter at the BIG Bubble Run. Thousands of people of all ages will gather at BIG Bubble base where activities, entertainment, and our BIG Bubble foam cannon await. All before you run, jog, walk or jump through 8 BIG Bubble foam zones along a 5km course back to BIG Bubble base.”

Hundreds of people have commented tagging their friends. It not yet known when, or how many, tickets will become available. We’ll let you know as soon as there’s more info.
