The Disney Runner in You
If you’re like us, you might find yourself having a hard time staying motivated with those pesky New Year’s Resolutions – like training for a 5K, 10K, half marathon, or even a full marathon. Well, what if that race could include a Disney Destination vacation, crazy costumes, fun prizes and more? If that sounds like your kind of race, you just might want to read on…
Each year, Walt Disney World and Disneyland host numerous events for runners of all levels, with courses that take you across the Resort and Parks. There’s even a 5K on Disney’s private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay, so you can run off all of those gourmet dinners and desserts you enjoyed aboard your Disney Cruise.
The marathon and half marathon weekends are Disney-themed and include favorites such as Star Wars, Disney Princess, Tinker Bell, Disney Wine & Dine and more! And there are races for all levels, so you don’t have to worry if you’re not ready for 26.2 or even 13.1 miles.
Of course, you’ll receive some fantastic perks like a commemorative finisher medal, tech shirt, personalized bib, virtual goody bag and more, but the best part might just be the costumes and the shoes. Imagine running through Cinderella Castle all dressed up as one of your favorite Disney characters while running in official Disney New Balance shoes. You heard that right! Disney themed shoes. From Mickey to Tink, from Dumbo to Ariel (featured above), participants can purchase these fun little works of footwear art.
So, when you’re ready to throw on your Snow White tutu – and Disney running shoes – and push your resolutions to the limit, let us help you plan a vacation that your whole family can enjoy. We know they will want to be there to cheer you on…and enjoy all the magic Disney has to offer along the way!
