101 Things To Do In Memphis #15: Bubble Run

by Melissa Thompson

If you’ve done a traditional 5K, you know they can be a bit lackluster. But the BUBBLE RUN™ is like running through Willy Wonka's factory. Clad in white t-shirts, adults, kids and strollers run, walk, dance and play across 3 miles of absolute fun!

Waves start every 3-5 minutes. Then, at each kilometer, participants will run through the Foam Bogs where there is enough colored foam to cover you from head to toe!
Bubble-teers and charity partners will also be there to help make sure you get your share of the frothy goodness. Each of the four Foam Bogs are represented by different colored foam. So what if you should accidentally “taste the whimsey?” They don’t taste as great as they are fun, but not to worry. The foam is 100% safe.

What does living in a bubble feel like?

Like a giant, effervescent party.
The race itself is amazing. But once you cross the finish line, there’s still plenty of excitement and activity.
Jam out and dance to the DJ’s, get some free swag and get ready to get a serious dose of extra foam! Then strut around like a peacock sporting your boss finisher’s status. Or perhaps you simply want to chill and take in the sight. Believe us, you’ve never seen anything like this. Whatever you do, don’t forget to shop for BUBBLE RUN™ groovy merch in our race day store.

Is Bubble Run™ a race?

Nope! That’s what’s awesome about it! There is nothing competitive about Bubble Run other than seeing who has the most color on them after the race! There’s no timing, no timing clock and no placement awards. Just a great excuse to come out and have fun with your friends, family and kids while doing something healthy!

Kids 4 and under race for free with fully paid adult registration.
Please see FAQ page for details.
