A great team building day out at this years’ Color Obstacle Rush event!
Dubbed as the funnest 5km event on earth, the Color Obstacle Rush event has been on team Bubble’s radar for a while now, and it didn’t disappoint! A 5km run through inflatable obstacles whilst getting covered in coloured paint powder, what’s not to love?!?
What is a color run?
The Color Obstacle Run is an organised event that takes place in different locations across the UK. It combines the fun of coloured paint powder, the thrill of an obstacle course and the atmosphere of a music festival! There are many fun obstacles including inflatable slides, tunnels, foam pits and more with paint stations and music around the course! Take a look at what the Color Obstacle Rush is all about, it’s a great event to do!
We entered the event at Rother Valley Country Park and following a quick registration we began the warm up to some old school 90’s tunes to get us all raring to go! The warm up also included some colour showers so it’s fair to say we we’re all bright and colourful before we even set off!
A fun filled day
As the event started we tackled the obstacles and soon found out there were a couple of competitive members amongst us!! We took a steady jog between the stations but then it was a race across the obstacles to see who came out on top!! We slid, bounced and tumbled our way through the course, having a great laugh doing so!!
The event village was a welcome site after completing the 5km run (or jog!) although it was straight into the post-run colour festival where, you guessed it, we were covered in more paint powder!! There were some interesting looks going off from multi-coloured hairstyles to orange faces, but it was all part of the fun!! Luckily Nic had brought some cleaning wipes so we all managed to clean up before heading home!!
We love team building days!
At Bubble we love to spend time together outside of work, and team building days are a great way to do that! We’re a close-knit team and having a good culture within our agency is really important to us. We all work extremely hard to drive results for our clients and support each other in everything we do, and having a balance to that and being able to enjoy some time to let our hair down and have a laugh just helps bring us all closer together as a team.
