For the first-time, run enthusiasts and Black Panther fans will have the opportunity to earn themselves a Black Panther race medal while getting in shape as part of the 4th annual runDisney Virtual Series this summer. This year’s theme celebrates 80 years of Marvel with three Marvel-themed 5Ks that participants complete at home in their neighborhood, by treadmill or on any course of their choosing.
Registration opens on May 7 at runDisney.com with a race taking place each summer month. The three themed races are: Captain Marvel (June), Iron Man (July) and Black Panther (August).
In addition to earning a race medal, participants receive a digital race bib and a finisher certificate. Participants who sign up and complete all three races will earn a bonus Marvel 80th Anniversary medal and commemorative item. The commemorative item as well as the design of the medals will be announced at a later date.
This is the first time runDisney has offered a Black Panther themed medal or featured the character as part of a race. Each runDisney medal is unique to the race and year and they have become popular collectors’ items.
The runDisney Virtual Series is a great way for someone to get started running and get a taste of a runDisney event. It’s also a fun way for our experienced runners to train for their upcoming races.
