You’re never too old to appreciate the magic of Disney. Whether your favorite Disney memory is riding on Thunder Mountain for the first time, meeting Tinkerbell, or watching the Mickey Mouse Club, it’s undeniable that Walt’s brainchild has an incredible impact on the childhood of most Americans.
As the years go by, there comes a time when a trip to Disney feels less enchanting and more tiresome. Two hour waits in line, misbehaved children, and a muggy Florida day all add up to make a day in the park a pain in the butt rather than an exciting experience. In an endeavor to reintroduce some of the magic to adults who have forgotten it, the “Happiest Place on Earth” created the Run Disney series. Runners can now revive the joy of their childhoods as they run a marathon, half-marathon, 10-miler, or 5K through the parks they loved as kids.
Gather up a group of friends for a weekend getaway that runners and non-runners alike will enjoy or take the whole family on a trip! With every event, there are plenty of activities for spectators and children, such as a 5K family fun run, kids’ races, pasta parties, and after parties in the parks. Run Disney events take place at both Walt Disney World in Orlando and Disneyland in Anaheim.
Take on a new running course, treat yourself to a vacation, and relive the magic of Disney you experienced as a child. Before you head to California or Florida, visit one of these awesome running stores here in Phoenix to buy everything you need for a successful race day:
