runDisney Launches Virtual Running Shorts

runDisney’s latest offering seeks to solve the problem that you might not be at a Walt Disney World Resort to take part in a runDisney race.

The Virtual Running Shorts Series is a set of three virtual races (Yellow Shoes 5K, Red Pants 5k and White Glove 5K), that you complete in your own choice of location, with a runDisney medal in return.

It wouldn’t be a runDisney event without a challenge, so there is a fourth option to run all 3 virtual races for more commemorative gifts at the end.

Now you can experience a taste of a runDisney race in your own backyard!

For the first time ever, runDisney is going virtual with the all-new Virtual Running Shorts Series, and the whole family is invited to join the Disney fun. Walk, jog, take a stroll through the neighborhood, or run your race on a treadmill. You choose the course that’s right for you! Select from one of three Mickey-themed Disney 5Ks or run all three to complete the Running Shorts Series. Four specially-designed Finisher Medals celebrating Mickey Mouse add even more Disney excitement to this brand new offering!

Whether you’re a seasoned runDisney runner or a beginner ready to take the first step, the all-new Virtual Running Shorts Series is a great way to celebrate a summer filled with great Disney runs and lots of fun!
