Race weekend is just over three months away! This will be the last in-person race of the 2021-2022 season.

The event’s theme will change each year. So for the inaugural event, we will see some of our favorite races returning! Take a look at these finisher medals:

The 5K will be nighttime run and scavenger hunt through Disney’s Animal Kingdom! I love the compass inspired finisher medal to go along with the scavenger hunt theme.

The 10k has a “Ratatouile” inspired course as they run around Walt Disney World. Look at Remy in the corner. He’s so cute!

The Tower of Terror 10 Miler becomes a morning race! Runners will race through 10 un-scary miles miles through the Walt Disney World Resort. I love that they are bringing back this popular race distance.

I hope they still have it finishing with Tower of Terror in the Background (fingers crossed!).
