The theme of this year’s runDisney virtual series is Disney100 featuring Mickey Through the Years and runDisney has revealed the four Mickey-inspired medals that will be available.
The runDisney virtual series includes three 5Ks, each with their own medal featuring a different Mickey. The fourth medal is for runners who complete all three 5Ks in the challenge.
Steamboat Willie 5K
Kicking off the runDisney Virtual Series is a throwback tribute to Mickey Mouse’s debut role in 1928. Whistle your way through 3.1 miles during the Steamboat Willie 5K!
Sorcerer’s Apprentice 5K
Conjure up some magic during your virtual miles! The Sorcerer’s Apprentice 5K pays tribute to Mickey Mouse’s most magical role in the Disney animated classic, “Fantasia.”
Runaway Railway 5K
Hang onto your sneakers as you zip away on a zany virtual race adventure! The Runaway Railway 5K is inspired by the exciting attraction starring both Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.
Go the extra mile this summer and take on the Disney100 Challenge by completing all three 5K events! Challenge participants can look forward to earning this extra-special finisher medal featuring the mice that started it all – Mickey and Minnie! This year’s medal comes with some hidden magic – pop off the front part of the medal to reveal a magnet you can use to showcase your achievement on your fridge, office whiteboard or location of your choice, AND still have a keepsake medal for your wall.
