runDisney Virtual Series Celebrates 80 Years of Marvel

For all of you runners and fitness enthusiasts out there, you will definitely want to check out the runDisney Virtual Series for this year.  This is the 4th annual runDisney Virtual Series event and it will feature three different races.  This year the theme is Marvel, in order to celebrate 80 years of Marvel!  Runners can choose to participate in any of the three races or participate in all three in order to earn the special Marvel 80th Anniversary medal in additional to each race finisher medals.  The themed 5K races for this year are Captain Marvel (June), Iron Man (July) and Black Panther (August).  Participants will receive their medal(s), a digital race bib, finisher certificate and a special commemorative item.


The runDisney Virtual Series offers runners (and walkers) the flexibility to lace up and run, jog or walk on the treadmill, around the neighborhood – or on any course they choose, and is a great way for runners to get a taste of a runDisney event. It’s also a fun way for you to train for any upcoming races!  The registration for the events open May 7th at 10 AM EST and then the virtual run season will take place from June 1st through August 31st. Guests can learn more about the races by visiting for more details.  The challenge costs $145 or you can book an individual race for $40 each. You have to book the challenge if you want to be able to earn the challenge medal. 

Who else out there would love to earn these amazing medals?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
