The ECCLPS Bubble Bash is the first of it's kind in Northeast Colorado! This is designed as a familiy friendly event to encourage families to get outside and moving! Runners/walkers will start & finish the race among bubbles with an occasional blast of bubbles along the way! The course will take you along dirt roads with slight inclines and a few curves as you enjoy fresh air and the great outdoors of the quaint, rural town of Merino, Colorado. The 5K course will begin at Juneberry Market and take you past the Merino School down Lee Street and on out of town to County Road 8.5. You will continue to open fields. Your return to town will be a slight down hill back the way you came and to the finish line back at Juneberry Market where you will be refreshed with snacks and drink. Once rested you can enjoy the wonderful Vintage Market booths with live music, shopping and food! And of course BUBBLE FUN FOR THE KIDDOS!
The 1K course will begin at Juneberry along with the 5K runners. At the Merino grade school you will split off around the walking trail built by the Merino FCCLA program. The trail includes some heart smart exercise activities. You will return back the way you began and end at Juneberry Market where you will be refreshed with snacks and drinks. Once rested you can enjoy the wonderful Vintage Market booths with live music, shopping, food, and BUBBLES!
COURSE WILL BE CLEARLY MARKED WITH SIGNS ALONG THE WAY! There will also be a hydration station half way through the course.
