The course had runners make their way from Hollywood Studios, through ESPN’s Wide World of Sports, and then back to the finish line at the The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction.  All along the course, runners had to watch out for the Disney Villains and other entertainment that haunt the path.  The course went through all different terrains like pavement, sand, and grass.  After the runners finished the race, the night is wasn’t over yet.  They joined all their favorite Villains for the Hollywood Bash Party.  They, also, could head over to the Family Reunion Area for characters and live entertainment.

It was also could’ve been a weekend for the whole family.  Families with tweens, teens, and adults were participants of the Disney Happy Haunted 5k Trail Run.  This race took place at 7:30 a.m., starting and finishing at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.  Just like the 10-Miler, Disney entertainment was provided along the way.  This race was a great way for family and friends to have fun together and earn their very own 5k Finisher Medal.

Don’t worry if you’ve got kids younger than 13 years old.  Disney has thought of everything.  Events like the One Mile run or the Kids Dashes took place at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.  The following races were divided into different age groups for the morning festivities. 

  • 12 months and under – Diaper Dash for crawlers
  • 1-3 years old – 100m dash
  • 4-6 years old – 200m dash
  • 7-8 years old – 400m dash
  • One Mile – Open to all children 13 and under

All participants also received a medal at the end of their run.  

All in all it was a fun-filled, magical weekend for all the runners who participated in this runDisney event.  We look forward to hearing all about the rest of this years running events being held at, both, the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts!
