    I actually have a couple of questions. First, what is the best running clothes to wear? We live in Florida so I know the weather can be just about anything. Second, Does anyone know if passholder rates are offered during the race weekend?

    Hello, Tanya! 

    When it comes to running gear, so many factors can influence your preferences. Fit, style and wear while you run can all play important roles in whether you like a certain brand. And you definitely don't want gear that chafes or is uncomfortable! Here are some suggestions of brands that I have had success with.

    - Champion brand from Target is what I wear almost everyday! I don't wear traditional running shorts, but I do like their capri length workout pants. 
    - Sparkle Athletic for races and for fun. These running skirts can be paired over your favorite running bottoms of any length and add a bit of whimsey to your runs.
    - Sparkle Skirts for training and for fun! These running skirts have built in bottoms that do not ride and have pockets! Great for any fuel you'll need to take for those longer runs.

    My favorite top to wear is a Nike running tank. Not only do I not experience any underarm chaffing, but the tanks with the little tabs on the back of the neck are designed for you to thread your ear buds through, keeping the cord out of your way - I love that because my earphones get in my way without that feature.

    I'm not sure which race weekend you are most interested in, but discounted passholder rates are typically available. In fact, the Annual Passholder room-only discount is one of my top tips for saving money on resort hotel accommodations for Marathon Weekend, Princess Half Marathon Weekend and Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend. These races all have passholder discounts available!

    I hope you find this information helpful, Tanya! Please do not hesitate to ask me any additional questions you may have. As the runDisney Specialist on the Disney Parks Moms Panel, I am here to help make your race experience as magical as possible.

    Happy Running!
