Things to Know Before Your First runDisney Event

Interested in your First runDisney Event?


Disney is renowned not only for its parks and characters but also for promoting sports. So, lace up your running shoes and get ready for your first runDisney event! Here are some things you should know, from tips on training and picking costumes to getting to the race and celebrating afterward.

What's runDisney?

First of all, if you don’t don’t what runDisney is, Famvia is here for you. It's a set of races that take place at Disney World and Disneyland, complete with themed runs, Disney characters cheering you on, and the joy of sweating it out amidst those beautiful park views.


Training is key

It doesn’t matter if you are doing a 5K or a full marathon, we recommend you have a good plan. And guess what? runDisney offers free training help! Disney experts say they usually mix different exercises like walking and running, and the best advice is to train while listening to Disney music to keep you motivated.

Your outfit!

At runDisney races, costumes are a big deal! Planning your outfit is fun, but make sure it's comfortable for running and follows the costume rules.

Before race day, there's the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo, where you should get your race stuff, shop, and maybe treat yourself to something nice. Disney really does its best to create something new in every edition.

Don’t forget that, after the race, it's time to celebrate! Take pictures with your medals, relax, and enjoy some good food at the Happiest Place on Earth!
