Time Out has information on Big Bubble Run Dubai's plans to host their first ever foam race. Also see pictures, videos and get details on buying tickets
Dubai's fun run scene is one of the fastest growing in the world, with anything from zombies to paint being used as the main ingredient.
And now on April 8 there's a fresh new addition, with the announcement of the Big Bubble Run.
Exactly where the 5km race, which will have an entry fee of Dhs185 (unless bought in bulk), will take place hasn't been confirmed yet.
What we do know is that the event will be one giant foam party, like the ones made infamous by European party islands a decade or so ago, taking place from 7.45am to 11am.
The company laying on the Big Bubble Run say they will use world leading providers of 'toxic free, 100 per cent organic and gluten free' foam solution which is 'very safe on the body and the environment'.
An occasion for all the family – those under six years old go free - there will be eight zones producing different kinds of bubble, for attendees to enjoy whether in it for the race, or just a leisurely stroll.
Set to the sounds of energy boosting music, expect inflatables, food stands and plenty of entertainment on the day. So far, nearly 2000 people have registered their interest on Facebook.
A similar event, Bubble Run, is a big hit in the United States with them taking place in Las Vegas, Miami, Washington and Nashville soon.
At those frothy gatherings waves of bubble are released every three to five minutes to ensure everyone experiences the stuff, which comes in a range of colours.
