runDisney Basics

Patty shares what makes runDisney special, why you would choose to run Disney (um hello it’s Disney), and of course, how to get registered.

Where should runDisney beginners start?

There are a lot of options when it comes to runDisney, from 5K to half marathons and Dopey Challenges. It really depends on your fitness level and determination for all those shiny medals.

Doing a basic run training program is a good idea if you are new to running. There are a lot of apps out there to help you get started and you can even download the runDisney training schedule from Jeff Galloway.

What is it like on race day at runDisney?

Picking up your bib is an adventure at runDisney. There are photo opps, character meet-n-greets, and lots of exclusive merchandise. Patty is rocking her Avengers Dooney & Bourke from her race while Jana and Ashley sit there jealous.

There are different corrals, balloon ladies, and sweepers for the course. Along the race course, there are character stops and lots of opportunities to see how beautiful the Disney Parks are when the sun is coming up. Speaking of the sun, be prepared to get up EARLY.
