Lace up your tennis shoes! It’s time to go run!
Are you someone who has always wanted to do a runDisney 5K, but you were either not able to run one at Disneyland or Walt Disney World or the race sold out before you could sign up? Or are you just someone who’s addicted to the bling? Well, runDisney has introduced a way for you to have the ability to run not one, but three new and different 5K options, as well as participate in a unique challenge race with the runDisney Virtual Running Shorts Series.
The series launches in time for the summer and will include three different 5K choice to complete and the best part is that you can complete them anywhere! Do them in your neighborhood, on your treadmill, pretty much anywhere you desire and you will be able to earn a unique medal for each race that you complete.
The virtual races are inspired by Mickey Mouse and each of the finisher medals represent different pieces that are iconic to him. For the first 5K, you’ll earn a “Yellow Shoes” medal, for the second 5K, you’ll earn a “Red Pants” medal, and for the third 5K, you could earn the “White Glove” medal. Runners who complete the challenge, running all three races, will receive a special challenge finisher medal, as well.
For those who are signed up to run the Yellow Shoes 5K, you must complete your race between May 15 – June 1, 2016. Those who sign up for the Red Pants 5K must run their race from June 5 – June 18, 2016. Finally those who sign up for the White Glove 5K will need to run from June 19 – June 30, 2016. Each runner will receive a finisher medal and a digital race bib for each race.
For those who run all 3 races – the entire 9.3 miles, you will earn a special Running Shorts series medal that features Mickey sporting his complete ensemble, as well as a Mickey tumbler.
The price for each individual race is $39, or to run the series it will cost $142.
While you are not required to share proof of the run, you are encouraged to use the hashtag #runDisneyShorts.
