Bubble Chase - Canada's colourful bubble run!
Fun for everyone! Get a group together and join the fun!
Everyone's welcome at Bubble Chase 5K - there is no minimum or maximum age limit.
Wheelchairs and strollers are permitted on the course.
Walk, run or dance!
Take on the bubbles the way you choose. This event is not a timed run. So if you wish to walk or run it is up to you.
Our course will be 2.5k and you will loop twice to complete your 5k. That means running through the bubble archways twice.
Start in a sea of bubbles and encounter 4 bubble bogs filled with masses of colourful bubbles and music.
Plus it's a 2-lap course, so you can go through each bubble bog twice!
Do it for Charity!
Every Bubble Chase is organized in partnership with a local charity.
Have fun in the foam and make every bubbly step count by raising needed funds!

Running With Children
Participants who are 13 and under must be accompanied by a participating adult (18+). Wheelchairs, strollers and pushchairs are permitted on course however please note that the terrain on the course may vary. (Hills, roads, pathways, grass, unpaved trails). If pushing strollers or wheelchairs it is important that the head of the participant in the stroller or wheelchairs is above the bubbles at all times. Note that bubbles at bubble bogs will vary in height and it is the responsibility of the person pushing the stroller or wheelchair to mind the safety and comfort of the passenger. Each city will have a unique course as no two locations will be the same. The Airdrie course will be a 2.5k course that participants can do one or more times. This means more bubbles for those who choose to run the course two times or more. If you wish to only run one lap of the course you will still receive the finishers medal.
Faster runners please keep to the left when running through the bubble bogs. Participants that are walking and with strollers, etc keep to the right. If running with small children it is a good idea to hold children's hands as you go through the bubbles. No stopping in the bubbles, if you stop in the bubble you can be hidden from others that are running through the bubble bog. Please at all times have your race bib attached to you as this is how we know you're a participant in the run. If you need assistance on the course look for race volunteers and ask for assistance.
