Is the bubble rush timed?

No, this is not a race and is definitely more about having fun rather than setting a personal best. 

What is in the foam?

The foam mixture we use is natural and safe. The dye in the foam gives vibrant colours, however it is a food dye and is water soluble so it is envrionmentally friendly too. The creamy foam has the same viscosity as water and does not contain any soap.
Slight stinging in your eyes may occur, however the pH balance is very low. Just be careful when wiping your eyes with your hands if they have frothy suds all over them. We suggest you pack some wet wipes to remove excess foam after you`ve finished in the bubbles, and having some towels to hand in the car for the journey home- or better still a change of clothes. 
Bubble Rush have tested the foam mixture on all manner of humans without issue. The mixture that we use is drier than most foam; therefore you won`t be soaked and won`t be slipping around in the foam.

How deep is the foam?

The bubble stations can be filled to a depth of four feet, so we recommend that you carry small children, hold the hand of older children and that they wear eye protection - swimming goggles are fine. 

Bubble commandos will be shooting foam at us with cannons, is that not dangerous? 

The bubble rush team are fully trained and will not aim the foam directly at your face. They are there to make sure there are plenty of colourful bubbles and help you have a great time, safely. 

Can children take part in the bubble rush?

Kids love the bubble rush and any ages can take part. Children under 16 years must be accompanied around the course by a responsible adult. Our ratio is 1:2 adult ratio. Please email events@tyhafan.org to register an under 2. 

Can I run with my dog?

For the safety of all supporters we are unable to allow any animals at the event. 

Are cameras and phones safe?

It is a good idea to take some precautions to protect your devices. The foam is water based so if you stay in the foam too long your devices may get wet. Also your hands will get wet so be careful not to drop that new smartphone into the foam. However, we will have our professional photographer who will be snapping away with photos which will be available on the website and Facebook page. 

Do I have to run the route or can I walk?

You don`t have to run! This is a fun event, so you can run, hop, skip or jump your way through if you wish. it is not a race, we just want you to have as much fun as possible. 

What should I wear and will it get ruined?

You can wear whatever you like - but be aware that the coloured foam can stain clothing so we recommend that you don`t come along in your best clothes. Remember you do get your free bubble rush t-shirt upon registration arrival. We encourage colourful fancy dress!

What if I need to change my T-Shirt size?

Please ensure you put the correct T-Shirt size on the registration form however, if you need to change this then please email events@tyhafan.org. You will be able to collect your T-Shirt on the event day. Please email events@tyhafan.org to register an under 2. 

Safety

We advise that all participants wear sunglasses, goggles etc to protect your eyes while running through the bubble stations. This is mandatory that all participants must wear eye protection when passing through the bubbles. These will be available on the day to purchase. 

Can I add people to my team?

All members must be registered together when creating a team, unfortunately we are unable to add additional members to your team afterwards. The additional member will need to register as an individual through the website, however you are still welcome to run together on the day and fundraise together as one team. 

Race Number

You will receive your actual race number to wear on the day in the post at least two weeks before the event date. If you have not received it by then please email events@tyhafan.org . You will need to bring your race number with you on the day in order to sign in at registration. If you have lost your race number we are unable to replace this before the event as we do not have duplications therefore, you will need to come to the information tent in the event village on the day to collect a new race number where you will need to give your details in. 

Disabled access 

Disabled access will be available at the event, however we ask that you contact us to let us know if you require disabled access, so that we can talk to you through any specific details and make any appropriate provision. You can email events@tyhafan.org

After the bubble rush 

We will have a clean up team in place to help remove the foam left on the ground after the event. This should disappear within half an hour. 

When will I receive my briefing pack?

Participants will receive a fundraising pack approximately 2 weeks after registration. This will include your sponsorship form, race number, disclaimer form and fundraising pack. You will automatically be sent a confirmation email upon registration, please ensure you check your junk folder in your email account. 

Will I be able to get clean again after the event?

We recommend that you leave a towel in your car to cover your seat or spare clothes to put on top of your running gear. We can not be held responsible for any damage on participant vehicles, public transport or private property. 

Will you have changing rooms or storage?

There will be no facilities of this nature at the event so please arrive with limited personal belongings or leave them with friends/family who are coming to watch. We can not be responsible for any belongings left unattended. 
There will be toilets provided for this event. 

Can spectators come along to the bubble rush?

Absolutley! Spectators are very welcome. We encourage families and supporters to come along and watch the fun! We can not however guarantee that spectators will stay clean, therefore we do advise that they keep a good distance from the bubble stations .
