Eight Tips for Your First runDisney Race

Here are some tips and tricks for participating in a runDisney event:
  1. Train for the race: Make sure you are physically prepared for the race by following a training plan. runDisney provides training plans on their website that are specifically designed for their races.
  2. Arrive early: The races usually start early in the morning, so make sure you arrive early to avoid any delays. If you are staying at a Disney resort, you can take advantage of the transportation provided to the starting area.
  3. Dress appropriately: Check the weather forecast before the race and dress accordingly. Make sure you wear a comfortable costume and shoes that you have trained in. Also, consider bringing layers to wear before and after the race.
  4. Plan your race day: Familiarize yourself with the course and plan out your race day. Consider where you will start, where you will take breaks, and where you will meet family and friends after the race.
  5. Bring supplies: Bring items such as sunscreen, snacks, water, and a phone charger to ensure you are comfortable and prepared during the race.
  6. Take advantage of photo opportunities: There are usually Disney characters and landmarks along the race course where you can take photos. Take advantage of these opportunities to capture memories of your runDisney experience.
  7. Pace yourself: Don't start too fast and burn out early in the race. Make sure you pace yourself to ensure you can finish the race strong.
  8. Enjoy the experience: Remember that runDisney races are not just about finishing times, but also about the experience. Take in the sights and sounds of the race and have fun!
