We love Disney, we like running (most days, anyway!) but when you combine them together and throw in a costume, we have something we love! Here are 25+ runDisney race costume ideas that you can DIY!
One of the best parts of running Disney is figuring out what you want to wear to the race.
And there are really no wrong answers: you can dress like a traditional runner, try on a running skirt, or go full running costume for your runDisney race.
I always say: if you can choose to run in costume, run in costume. But know these 4 rules to running in costume before you do!
It adds a little bit of whimsy to the entire seriousness of the race things- and gives those of us you pass (raises hand) something to look at as you run by!
