It’s the ‘mane’ virtual event you’ve been waiting for! This summer, join us in celebrating six years of the runDisney Virtual Series as we honor the timeless majesty of “The Lion King” with three wild and wonderful 5Ks. From The Pride Lands to your very own neighborhood, be prepared to rule the road (or sidewalk, or treadmill).
It’s hard to believe that it was 1994 when we first met Simba, the cuddly cub who would become king in the animated classic. Since then, he’s taken Broadway by storm and has been reimagined for a whole new generation. So whether you grew up with him back then, or you’re watching your little ones grow up with him now, this unforgettable story of discovering your purpose and celebrating who you are will forever be a cherished part of our lives … and we hope this runDisney virtual event can be as well!

Running a runDisney virtual event truly means having no worries! Not only do you get to decide when you run, you also get to decide where you run. Plus, when you register, you can add even more ferocious fun to your miles by downloading a themed bib and at-home kit that includes a start line, finish line and mile markers.
Get ready to have a roaring good time with three different 5Ks, each featuring its own medal inspired by the three unique storytelling versions of “The Lion King.” Be the talk of The Pride Lands and test your endurance by registering for the runDisney Virtual Challenge that includes all three 5Ks and you will receive four marvelous medals total.
Be prepared for a chance of a lifetime as registration opens Thursday, April 8 at 10am ET for all runDisney Virtual Series events on runDisney.com.
