Running on vacation? The runDisney events may be too big or intimidating if you are not a runner (don’t worry they are very relaxed and fun!), but some Disney Resorts offer a fun run on a much smaller scale.
When I visited Old Key West this past September, I signed up for the Southernmost Point Fun Run. This is a 3k throughout the resort.
How do I sign up?
How much does it cost?
When and Where?
The Southernmost Point Fun Run is on Wednesday mornings at 7:30 AM. This event is rain or shine, but if weather is too bad they will cancel. This event does not run during runDisney event weeks. The meeting location for this fun run is at the Family Tree.
But I’m not a runner!
You don’t have to be a runner to do this event. It is a fun and relaxed event. You can walk, run, or skip if you so choose! It is for fun but may make you feel less guilty reaching for another Mickey Bar.
Any race swag?
I am a sucker for good race swag. You are given a medal and a water bottle as keepsakes! I love races that give you finisher medals. Granola bars and water were provided at the end for refreshments.
Is it worth it?
I feel that this is a great value for a fun run, and with a little swag makes it a fun keepsake. Cast Members are stationed throughout the course to direct you and cheer you on. Who doesn’t love a little boost on their run? I would recommend this to someone looking for something to do at the resorts on their next trip.
