Virtual 5k

Back again for another year is runDisney’s Virtual Running Shorts Series! Registration opened starting today, April 11th, which also happens to be National Pet Day. In celebration of this special day, runDisney has announced that this year’s series will feature Mickey’s favorite pet, Pluto.

If you have ever wanted to participate in a runDisney event and have never been able to make it “home”, these runs are for you! You can participate in them wherever you may be: around your city, on the treadmill, or in your favorite dog park with your best four-legged friend! From beginners to professional marathon runners, these runs are for everyone!

There will be a total of three individual race windows throughout the summer with each race offering a commemorative finisher medal featuring Pluto. If you complete all three races within the completion time frame, you will also receive a Virtual Running Shorts Series Finisher Medal PLUS a Coolcore towel to chill out with. As an added bonus, if you register prior to April 30th, you will receive some treats for your four-legged friend including a commemorative dog tag and a collapsible bowl.
