Bubble Rush event cancelled

St Elizabeth Hospice’s popular annual fundraiser, Bubble Rush, has been postponed until next year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Bubble Rush is a 5km fun run held in Christchurch Park, Ipswich. Open to all ages and abilities, Bubble Rush sees participants start in a sea of foam before passing through bubble stations around the course where foam cannons pump out masses of coloured bubbles.

Following discussions between the event organiser, Ipswich Borough Council and the charity, the much-loved event, due to take place on 5th September, has now been moved to Saturday 11th September 2021, as a result of government guidance concerning Covid-19.

“It is with a heavy heart we have to postpone Bubble Rush 2020,” said Joanne Rodger, Events and Challenges Manager at St Elizabeth Hospice.
“Alongside Ipswich Borough Council and Extreme Adventure we have been monitoring the situation and exploring all avenues to ensure Bubble Rush could go ahead as normal but unfortunately this is not possible.

“Ensuring everyone is safe is paramount for us and that is why have made this difficult decision. The community have been a fantastic support to us throughout the pandemic, particularly by getting behind our #HereTogether campaign, and we look forward to hosting our full schedule of fundraising events in the future, when it is safe to do so.”
