For Summer: 2019 Run Disney Virtual Races
The upcoming summer season means that Run Disney is celebrating it’s fourth year of their popular virtual race series. The 2019 Run Disney Virtual Races celebrate 80 years of Marvel history – I AM SO PUMPED FOR THIS THEME!
I love that everyone can participate in the virtual races, from home at their own pace. It’s perfect for those who can’t travel, perfect a non-competitive race and want to try Run Disney. (All photos ©RunDisney2019)

About The 2019 Run Disney Virtual Races
The event goes from June 1st-August 31st, with registration opening on May 7th at 10:00am ET on runDisney.com. You can choose from three different Marvel-themed 5Ks that you complete at home or you can sign up to participate in all three to earn the bonus Challenge medal!
Participants can jog, walk, make it something fun for the whole family – including your dog. If you’re training for an upcoming race at the parks, it’s great motivation to train as well.
The themes for the 2019 runDisney Virtual Series include:
- Virtual June 5K – Captain Marvel
- Virtual July 5K – Iron Man
- Virtual August 5K – Black Panther
- Challenge – Marvel 80th Anniversary
What’s really cool is that 2019 will mark the first time Captain Marvel, Iron Man, and Black Panther have been used as themes for the runDisney Virtual Series!
I know this is going to be huge hit for Run Disney racers – I think it’s the perfect excuse to get our family active this summer.
In addition to a medal, participants in the 2019 runDisney Virtual Series receive a digital race bib and a finisher certificate. There will also be a commemorative item for Challenge participants, which will be revealed at a later date.
