runDisney launches virtual races

Apr 28, 2016 in "Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend"

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.

Each virtual 5K race costs $39 to enter including a medal, or $143 for the entire series including all three individual race medals, a special challenge medal, digital race bib and a Mickey tumbler.

Each race has to be completed between the specified dates, and medals are sent within 30 days of race completion. There is no proof of run required, so accepting the medal comes down to the honor system.

You can read more details and register starting April 28 2016 at the runDisney site, with the races taking place between May 15 and June 30 2016.
