Lace up your sneakers, because it’s time to reveal the races, themes, registration date, and medals for runDisney‘s latest Virtual Series!
runDisney’s Virtual Series are races that you can complete anywhere you want. You can run at home on the treadmill, map out a course in your neighborhood, or even find a running trail in Disney World (many hotels have them nearby) and complete the race while you’re there on vacation. If that sounds like your kind of thing, check out the 2022 summer Virtual Series, featuring a classic Disney film!
Like we predicted last week, this summer’s Virtual Race Series will have a Frozen theme! Each of the 3 races celebrates a different aspect of this story. The series will take place between June 1st and August 31st, 2022. Since they’re virtual races, you can run them at any point during that time.
There are 3 different 5K races in this series, and if you complete all 3, you can get an extra Virtual Challenge medal as well! The races are called The Original Classic, The Heroic Sequel, and The Broadway Hit. Each one costs $47.97 to register, or you can register for the runDisney Virtual Challenge for $159.90, which includes all 3 races and that extra Challenge medal.
Registration includes the medal, a themed bib, and an at-home race kit. In the kit, you’ll find downloadable signs for a start line, finish line, and mile markers. Registration opens for all 4 races on April 5th, 2022, at 10AM EST.
The Original Classic 5K of course highlights the first Frozen movie.
The medal for this race has Kristoff and Sven in “a snowy wonderland.”
If you’d prefer to race “Into the Unknown,” check out The Heroic Sequel 5K, which highlights Frozen II!
The medal for this race has sisters Anna and Elsa on it.
And the third race highlights The Broadway Hit adaptation of Frozen.
This medal shows Elsa in a snowburst, which was one of the logos used for the Broadway show.
And for the most ambitious runners out there, you can participate in the Virtual Challenge, which is represented by our favorite snowman, Olaf!
The medal features Olaf enjoying the summertime sun, which seems very fitting for a summer Virtual Series.
Be sure to set your clocks to 10AM EST on April 5th, 2022, when registration will open for all of these races! And keep following DFB for more of the latest Disney news.
