After a warm up and Zumba exercises with Sarah Chow and Nigel Shipp, entrants were sent off around the 5k course in two waves.

More than 400 people set off at 11am, with around 350 heading off at noon. They completed two laps of a winding 5Km course around Normanston Park passing four bubble stations along the way, where foam cannons pumped out masses of different coloured bubbles that created a bath of bubbles.
