Get ready for a bubbly good time…

Being healthy doesn’t have to equal forced gym visits for treadmill runs. In Dubai, there are plenty of ways to keep fit and still have fun while torching those calories. One way is by signing up for one of the many fun runs that take place in the city and one you don’t want to miss is the return of the bubble run.

After first taking place in February 2023 on Bluewaters, the Bubble Run returns in January 2024, this time taking place at Expo City on Saturday, January 20.

Bubble Run 2023 Dubai

For those who aren’t familiar, the Bubble Run is a non-competitive run that is open to everyone.

This time around, the run will navigate through Expo City with two courses of 4km and 8km to choose from, with multiple bubble zones. But it’s not just for show – because, where’s the fun in that? Participants of the run will end up being covered head to toe with foam exploding from giant cannons.

Besides this, runners can expect all kinds of family-friendly entertainment. Once you’ve finished the race, stick around at the after-race village for activities for the youngsters and a DJ to keep the crowd cheering and on their feet. All racers will receive a medal and a goodie bag with gifts.
