We are so excited to be back into some RunDisney racing! We joined in the RunDisney Virtual Summer Series and completed our first run in June! The first race is a Mad Tea Party 5K! Inspired by the classic Alice in Wonderland Disney Parks attraction! All three races are themed after popular Disney Parks attractions, and we even get a bonus medal for running the entire summer series. For the first time ever, RunDisney tweeted a poll allowing runners to choose what they wanted the Summer Series to be! Mad Tea Party 5K is first, with a Space Mountain 5K next, and rounding out with a Haunted Mansion 5K!
Running the Mad Tea Party 5K
We chose to run the RunDisney Virtual Summer Series on Disney property, or as close as possible. With the resorts and parks still closed in June, we chose to run on Hotel Plaza Boulevard. This is the main street outside of Disney Springs, host to many good neighbor hotels. The tricky part of this course is the very tall pedestrian bridges we had to climb. The reward is that we were able to finish running and change before shopping at World of Disney! We were hoping for Dole Whips, but the stand wasn’t open yet so we settled for some Starbucks favorites!
If you are completing this race at home or on the treadmill, you can run at Disney Springs as well! We have a number of Disney Parks treadmill videos including Magic Kingdom, Disneyland, Epcot, and many more on YouTube!
