Today is an international holiday we love to recognize alongside our friends at runDisney—it’s Global Running Day! Global Running Day is a day to take strides towards a healthier lifestyle, and one of our favorite ways to do just that, in style, is with runDisney events! Who doesn’t love dressing up, meeting characters, and having fun with friends all while getting a little exercise in? We sure do! And since this year is the 25th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Marathon, there are so many exciting events to look forward to.
To start planning your next runDisney event, we put together six outfits inspired by Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, Donald Duck, and Dopey—who will all be featured at the 25th anniversary marathon celebration. We’ve also included a few tips to get you motivated for your next event:
Goofy’s color palette always makes for a fun outfit. To get this outfit, start with finding pieces that are blue and orange, as well as flexible to run in. The rest will all come together after that!
It’s a long, fun day at the Parks for runDisney events. We definitely stress sun protection and comfortable shoes above all. Bonus points if you can get your hat and shoes to mix into your DisneyBound, like in this Mickey-inspired outfit.
Polka dots are the perfect way to add a little bit of Minnie style to your running look, and a Minnie water bottle is an absolute must for staying hydrated throughout your marathons.
You don’t need a ton of layers to put together a DisneyBound. Even with just a few pieces you can create a character-inspired look like this Donald Duck outfit.
We love outfits inspired by Pluto’s golden yellow color. And since the characters are available to take pictures with throughout the race, you can get your perfect DisneyBound photo with Mickey’s best pal.
This year’s Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna will also be the 5th anniversary of the Dopey Challenge—a four-race challenge that includes 48.6 miles of running! This athleisure look, inspired by Dopey, is good for cooling down and hanging out in-between races.
The Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend is January 3-7! So get motivated and sign up for your next runDisney event today, Global Running Day!
