    Hi, I’m running my first Dopey in 2024 and I am about a month into my training plan. As it warms up outside, I am started to run with a hydration pack. I know in past years this has been okay to run with on race day but wanted to make sure we still can!

    Hi Morgan! Welcome to planDisney.

    Every mile is magic when we are talking runDisney events. Back in 2019, I completed the Dopey Challenge and it is still my most treasured Disney memory. I encourage you to stay with your training program throughout the upcoming months. It will be base for your success in conquering those 48.6 miles throughout Walt Disney World Resort.

    I like that you are training smart with a hydration pack in these hot and humid summer months. Unless policy changes, you will be allowed to wear your hydration pack for your events. In fact, at water stations, volunteers will have larger bottles of water to refill your water bladder if needed.

    To stay in the Disney spirit during training, keep up with the runDisney Blog. For the summertime, read their recent post here. You can download the official runDisney training playlist or listen to Disney-themed podcasts. My personal favorite is the planDisney Podcast Presented by State Farm or D23 Inside Disney Podcast.

    Happy Training!
