runDisney has just announced their first virtual race series. The series is made up of three different 5K races. You can purchase each one separately or pay a combined "challenge" package where you complete all three. Like typical virtual races, you'll receive a race bib and a medal in the mail - all with an adorable Mickey theme. The races in this inaugural series include theming around Mickey's famous yellow shoes, red shorts, and white gloves. Races cost $39 each or $142 for the entire series. This is a steep price compared to most virtual races, but is a bargain price compared to the typical runDisney 5K.
As for me, I'm debating whether or not to sign up for one of these races. While the lure of runDisney bling always calls to me as a siren song, my favorite parts of the runDisney experience are the characters and the camaraderie among my fellow runners. But if I know the runDisney community, it will be buzzing with excitement and encouragement for all runners out there tackling these virtual races.
Oh, who am I kidding? Go ahead and take all money runDisney. . .
