This is the news we have been waiting for!
There are so many great ways to celebrate at Walt Disney World and runDisney creates great events for guests all throughout the year. Springtime Surprise is the newest addition to the runDisney race weekends and is a different theme every year. For example, this past spring’s race had a fun Pixar theme.
We now have great news for the 2024 Springtime Surprise Challenge. Say “aloha” to Stitch’s ‘Ohana Challenge, just one of the exciting events coming to the runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend.
Inspired by Disney Animation’s Lilo & Stitch, challenge participants will blast off to the finish line of all three races during the weekend – the 5K, 10K, and 10-Miler – and be rewarded with a special medal that celebrates the magic of being together.
Runners, take flight for the first event of the race weekend with the Neverland 5K! Join favorite characters from Disney Animation’s Peter Pan for a magical 3.1-mile run that will take you toward the “second star to the right and straight on ’til morning” to find the finish line!
The finish line must be explored! Runners, join the Adventure Is Out There 10K for an exhilarating 6.2-mile race inspired by Disney and Pixar’s Up. Encounter some beloved characters like Russell, Dug, Carl, and even Kevin amidst a course inspired by South American landscapes and a sky of balloons.
It’s the ‘mane’ event you’ve been waiting for – the Hakuna Matata 10-Miler, an epic running journey inspired by Disney Animation’s The Lion King. From savannas and jungles to Pride Rock and Hakuna Matata Falls, join Simba, Timon, and Pumbaa on this roaring run, where the rhythm of African drums and the spirit of the Circle of Life will guide you to the finish line.
Up for an out-of-this-world challenge? Say aloha to Stitch’s Ohana Challenge, inspired by Disney Animation’s Lilo & Stitch, where completing all the runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend races—5K, 10K, and 10-Miler—earns you not just bragging rights, but a special medal honoring the magic of togetherness, where no one and no adventure is left behind.
