It’s Incredible! 2018 runDisney Virtual Racing
This is the 3rd year running for runDisney’s Virtual Running Shorts which gives runners the chance to participate in runDisney events anywhere they want over the summer.
Virtual racing is a ton of fun- and a great way to keep yourself moving when you don’t have a race on the calendar.
The runDisney virtual run series seems to be a big hit and this year, it’s going to be INCREDIBLE!
I honestly squealed when I saw these virtual racing medals.
I’m a Super dork over this family!
If you haven’t picked up on it, Disney is big on synergy.
Pixar Pier featuring the Incredicoaster is opening at Disneyland.
And there’s this little movie that some of us have been waiting 14 long years for: the Incredibles 2 opens on June 15, 2018, in theaters nationwide!

The details are up on runDisney.com now but we’re lacking one important date: when can you sign up for the 2018 runDisney Virtual Running Shorts?
I’ll be sure to update when I know- don’t you worry!
The first virtual 5K run takes place from June 1- June 30 and features my favorite Disney mom: Mrs. Incredible.
The second virtual 5K run takes place from July 1 to July 31. Sounds like a great way to earn get your 4th of July miles in by running like a Super with Mr. Incredible and Violet.
And the third virtual 5K takes place August 1 to August 31. Be quick about it: you gotta earn that Dash and Jack Jack medal, amirite?!
By signing up and completing all three of these virtual racing events you’ll earn that gorgeous Incredibles logo medal!
