The 1st Annual Bolts Bubble Run 5K and Family Fun Run, presented by the Lutz Preparatory School PTA, takes place at beautiful Al Lopez Park in Tampa, Fl.  The 5K and 1Mile Fun runs take place on a flat loop course through the tree lined park which includes restrooms and water stations.  The 5K will be chip timed by TRC Race Management.  

Runners begin each race through a burst of floating bubbles because Happiness is Blowing Bubbles!  Following the 5K and 1 Mile runs will be a 100 yard Kids Dash for our junior racers, 6 years old and under.  All finishers receive a custom Bolts Bubble Run medal and super cool official race t-shirt (**Must be registered by Feb. 28th, 12PM to guarantee a t-shirt**).  The races end at with a bubble filled party in the park including food, awards, music by DJ Iron-Mike Housefield, and more bubble fun from Master Bubble Performer, Blaise Ryndes! 

Join us Sunday March 5th and Wash Away Your Troubles with a Run and Floating Bubbles!

Race proceeds benefit Lutz Preparatory School, a public charter school in Hillsborough County.
