RunDisney® races are THE thing at Walt Disney World®! Is it for the medals, the experience or for the exercise? To each runner, it is something different. While so many travel to Walt Disney World® for the runDisney® races, unfortunately others are not able to for various reasons. For this, Disney has created runDisney® virtual races.
So we know what you are thinking – what is a virtual race? A virtual race is an event that allows participants to run on a course or courses of their own choosing on a specific date or within a specific time frame. Participants simply run the required distance where and when it is convenient for them!
The virtual runDisney® events are available to be run as individual events or an entire series. The series are typically 5K runs – one for each month of summer. Participants can choose to participate in one, two, or three 5K runs, as well as the series of all three runs. Runners also have the option of completing their runs any time within the specified month. They can run a mile each day or complete the entire 5K at once. It’s 100% up to the runner.
No fancy technology is needed to tag along with you during your run, as the runs are completed on the honor system with finishers visiting a website after the run to enter times and download a printable finisher certificate. While a certificate is fabulous, there are more super fun souvenirs that will come your way!
If you know Disney, they go big! Even for virtual runs, you will receive some pretty cool “swag”. For every race you will receive a finisher certificate, race bib, medal and special gift to the race. If you partake in the series, you will not only receive the awesomeness already mentioned, but you will also receive some extra Disney magic! This past year participants finishing the series received a resistance band, hot and cold pack, magnetic frame AND a special medal to celebrate the completion of the entire series! I mean come on now, what’s better than special souvenirs?
Back by popularity, this winter, race through the galaxy on your own course during the 2019 Star Wars Virtual Half Marathon! For the half marathon you will be able to choose to run the 13.1 miles all at once or break up the required mileage for shorter runs, all while earning the coveted finisher medal. Now, I don’t know about you – but we’re in!
