Participants in the Bubble Run will be doused with bubbles from head to toe, which are coming from giant cannons shooting soapy spheres out during the three-kilometer course.

Additionally, runners can expect all kinds of family-friendly entertainment throughout the main event. There are cultural performances, activities for the youngsters and a DJ to keep the crowd cheering and on their feet.


There are different timing options to start the race:  8am, 8:30am, 9am, 9:30am and 10am.

The gates will open at 7am, and runners will set off at 8am from the iconic Ain Dubai. The three-kilometer course lets runners enjoy the Dubai skyline and surrounding shores before crossing the finish line. All finishers will receive a medal and a goodie bag with gifts from the event partners.
