Frequently Asked Questions
How old do I need to be to take part?
To take part in the 5K Bubble Fun Run you need to be over 6 and run with an adult who is over 18.
The 2.5K route is suitable for all ages and abilities.
How much do I need to raise?
There is no minimum sponsorship for this event. We ask that you raise as much as you possibly can. For each £20 you raise this is 1 hour of specialist care so every little really does add up and make a difference.
Can I raise funds for another charity?
This event is organised for and by The Prince of Wales Hospice and Wakefield Hospice. For this reason we ask that you raise as much as you can for either or both hospices. Please see our Fundraising Section.
Runners who raise money for an alternative charity will be disqualified from the run and unable to take part.
I want to run in the same colour wave as someone else how do we do this?
We want you to run in the same wave too… If you are booking online you can choose your specific time slot/wave when you book. So agree with your friend and then choose the same wave. You can book separately you just need to be in the same group.
If the wave you want to be in is full and you want to run with someone please give Wakefield Hospice a call on 01924 213900, we will try to put you in that same wave. If the time you want is full, for runners safety we will not be able to increase the group size, we can however put you all in a new wave so that you can run together.
Can I walk?
Yes, the Bubble Fun Run is open to all abilities and is all about having fun and raising money not about how fast you run.
Do I have to enter to do the run with my child?
Yes, all children under 16 need to be accompanied by an adult who will need to enter the race as well and pay the registration fee.
