This past year, my fiancée has been participating in a lot of runDisney races in both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts. One thing I’ve learned while cheering for her is that the right race attire can make all of the difference. Today, I’m excited to announce a new Minnie Run collection by Champion Athleticwear that is coming to the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend in January 2015.

Inspired by Minnie Mouse, this new collection features a new “Run Your Ears Off” tee-shirt, a seamless bra and seamless capri pants.

I spoke with the Champion Athleticwear team who provide the official performance apparel for runDisney. They said they designed this new collection after extensive research and feedback from runDisney participants over the past few years. The bra and Capri are chafe resistant through innovative seamless technology, which they said is perfect for running. The new tee has Champion Vapor Technology which dries faster as you heat up (I need that kind of shirt for summers in Florida!).

The Minnie Run collection will be sold at the Champion Athleticwear booth during the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo from January 7 – 10 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

Stay tuned in the coming weeks as I’ll offer some additional looks at other items coming to this exciting race weekend at Walt Disney World Resort.


  • I was at the WDW expo on Wednesday,the first day, by 1pm and this was completely sold out.

  • During the expo on the weekend of feb 19-22nd would i be able to go buy merchandise from the expo at the espn wide world of sports

  • Do you know if these are still available at the expo? Tried on Weds. but there were none. My wife is on a mission for this shirt in medium. Here all weekend but don’t want to make a special trip if none left. Thanks.

  • Steven ill be there for that week in January and hopefully will be able to get some of the this stuff. My question(s) is/are though, is there limited quantities? Should I try to get there the first day as early as I can to get this stuff? Already have my whole week planned (that Wednesday and Friday i do Mk tours and park all day, Thursday I do universal) should I try and make time during one of those days to go to the expo, or will I be fine going Saturday morning?

    • @Diana – These items are not considered limited edition but there are probably only so many ordered for this first event. These items will be available while supplies last. It’s difficult to say if any items will be available on Saturday morning as it will depend upon the popularity of them with other Guests attending the Expo.

  • Will this mdse be available at the Star Wars runners expo? Pretty please!

    • @Heather – Find these items at the Expo during the Star Wars Half Marathon, you will.

  • Will they be available for the Princess Half Marathon Weekend in February?

    • @Elizabeth – Yes! They plan to offer these during the Expo. Hope to see you there 🙂

  • Can you give us any hints on what the New Balance shoes will look like? I still wear my Cindy’s every day at the gym 🙂

    • @Barbara – That’s a great question. I’ll have to ask the team as I’m a little unfamiliar. If I get any additional information, I’ll respond.

  • Ditto Jill’s question. I cannot be there, but I’d love to buy this outfit and whatever else they offer. Also, can Florida residents not participating in the Marathon go to Expo? If so, I can send my mom to purchase for me, but I’m hoping you’ll say it will be available.

    • @Shannon – Guests are welcome to attend the Expo. I’ve gone before with my fiancee with no problem.

  • Any chance this merchandise will be available for purchase online?

    • @Jill – Unfortunately, these items will not be available online. They will be released only at the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo.
