Last year, RunDisney offered a set of Mickey-themed Virtual Races where you could sign up and run a 5k (or multiple 5k’s) wherever you wanted and then a medal was mailed to you after completion. It was very fun to take part in, and we’re excited that runDisney has announced they’re doing it again this year!
Their second year of Virtual Races will go on sale Tuesday, April 11, 2017. This year the races are themed with Mickey’s best pal, Pluto! The series includes three 5Ks you can complete from whichever course you choose, whether that’s through your own neighborhood, on the treadmill at the gym, or at your local park. Participants will receive a uniquely designed finisher medal for each 5K completed plus a challenge medal for completing all three virtual 5Ks.
Disney also mentioned that the celebratory charity for the shorts will be Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando, who is celebrating 80 years of saving pets in Central Florida.
Will you be running the virtual Pluto shorts this year? I know I will!
