DETAILS on the runDisney Virtual 12Ks of Christmas!
We know it’s only July, but it’s not too early to start thinking about the holiday season! Disney sure is getting prepared.
There are already tickets on sale for things like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and Jollywood Nights in Disney World. We’ve also had some sneak peeks at merch!
And now, we know more about a special Disney holiday event that you can participate in from home!
12Ks of Christmas
This year, runDisney is putting on a first of its kind virtual race event during the holiday season — the 12Ks of Christmas Challenge!
The challenge is to complete three 4K virtual races on courses of your choosing sometime between December 1st and December 31st, 2023. This means you can run them wherever you want!
The 4Ks are themed to different Disney characters. One of them is hosted by Mickey, Donald, and Goofy…
…the next is hosted by Minnie and Daisy…
…and the third is hosted by Pluto!
General Registration for the challenge opens on July 25th, 2023 at 10AM ET. It costs $267 to participate.
So, what does that money get you? Let’s break it down — here’s what’s included:
- Participant Long-Sleeved Hooded Shirt
- Holiday CORKCICLE™ Mug and Hot Cocoa Kit
- 4 Commemorative Finisher Medals That Double as Christmas Ornaments
- Digital Race Bib and Finisher Certificates
- Digital Race Tool Kit featuring Printable Mile Markers
We’ve got a look at the four commemorative finisher medals, too! These actually double as Christmas tree ornaments.
There’s the medal with Mickey, Minnie, Daisy, and Pluto above, and there’s also another with Goofy, Mickey, and Donald!
The third medal features Pluto…
…and the fourth has Minnie and Daisy!
Also, this race benefits Toys for Tots! There will be an independent donation to the charity in honor of the runDisney Virtual 12Ks of Christmas Challenge.
Toys for Tots “offers joy and hope to disadvantaged children across the nation through the gift of a new toy or book, providing them with confidence and memories that last a lifetime.”
