UAE’s First Bubble Run Takes Place on Bluewaters Island in Dubai
The UAE’s first Bubble Run was held in Dubai on Sunday morning.
The term fun run took new meaning at Bluewaters Island on Sunday, as many runners took part in the UAE’s first Bubble Run.
The race made its UAE debut on Sunday morning, as runners of all ages took on a foamy 3km course around the island.
Giant canons were placed along the track, blowing a stream of bubbles on the runners as they passed. At the finish line, racers were treated to live music.
The non-competitive event is similar to other themed runs, including The Colour Run, which is also billed as the “happiest 5k on earth”, where participants are covered in brightly coloured powder as they run.
Bubble Run’s organisers, US company Cool Events, has more themed runs under its belt, including a neon lights-inspired event and a marathon held on a muddy track.
