    I am registered for the 2024 VIRTUAL Springtime Surprise Weekend. Am I able to order runDisney merchandise when I am not there in person?

    Hey there, Kimberly!

    Welcome back to planDisney. I'm so glad you've decided to stop over with your question about runDisney virtual races! As a fellow runDisney enthusiast, I'm so excited to hear that you'll be participating in the 2024 runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend virtual races. These at-home events are the perfect way to add a little pixie dust to your day! Kimberly, I'm here to help you understand how to obtain runDisney event-specific merchandise. On your marks, get set, GO!

    Whether you plan to tackle the virtual Neverland 5K, Adventure Is Out There 10K, Hakuna Matata 10-Miler, or Stitch's 'Ohana Challenge, you're in for miles and miles of magic. Kimberly, at this time, virtual race participants do not have the opportunity to order event-specific merchandise for the 2024 runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend. Unfortunately, the only way to purchase event merchandise is to attend the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo at the Walt Disney World Resort during the race weekend. However, I'd like to offer a couple of suggestions for obtaining race weekend merchandise, Kimberly:
    • Do you know anyone who will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during race weekend? The runDisney Health & Fitness Expo is open to the public, so if someone you know will be on-site during that time, I encourage you to ask them to shop the event on your behalf and ship you your goodies!
    • I've had good luck finding runDisney event merchandise at Disney outlet stores in the Orlando area within a few months of race weekends being completed. If you have a Walt Disney World Resort vacation planned for later in 2024, I recommend stopping by these locations to see what's left! (If you don't have a trip planned quite yet, maybe this is a sign to start the planning process...)
    Kimberly, you won't walk away from your virtual race empty-handed. Once you go the distance, visit the finisher website to submit your finish time and download your completion certificate! At the end of the event conclusion timeline, all participants will receive an event-specific commemorative medal. But beware, Kimberly - once you complete your first runDisney event, it's almost guaranteed that you'll want to register for your next one!

    I hope you've found this information helpful as you gear up for a fun-filled virtual race. I'd like to wish you the best with your training program and event, Kimberly! If you have any additional runDisney questions, or when you're ready to plan your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation, revisit us here at planDisney again. Enjoy every magical mile!

    Embrace the adventure,
