Disney Sports Style: How To Show Your #DisneySide

Hello! My name is Aubrey Hang and I’m the Sports Marketing Community Manager for runDisney and ESPN Wide World of Sports. I am thrilled to be the newest author on the Disney Parks Blog, sharing updates on the amazing fashion seen during the eight runDisney race weekends and other events at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

First of all, everyone has a different sports style. Guests love to show their Disney Side by incorporating a character’s style into their own fashion. We have athletes who might just add a touch of Disney, to those who are “DisneyBound” and finally those who wear full costume from head to toe. We see people of all ages dress up for the occasion with many wearing group and family coordinated outfits. The creativity put into these outfits is unbelievable and so much fun to watch cross the finish line.


We’ve teamed up with Leslie Kay of DisneyBound to help put looks together for upcoming events and speak at our runDisney Health & Fitness Expos. My favorite outfit Leslie recommended so far was for the Dopey Challenge. Using pieces from Champion and New Balance, she put together a look to resemble Dopey!

In this blog series, I will focus on fashion recaps from our past events as well as ideas and inspiration for upcoming ones. I’m excited to give tips on how to create fun looks for runDisney races, as well as share with you the fashion seen at our ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex events! Here’s a sneak peek at some of my favorites from past runDisney events:

Have you shown your #DisneySide during a runDisney event? Which character inspired your look? Tell us in the comments section below.


  • Hi welcome to the team! I would love to see any information you have on the upcoming princess marathon. Do you have any information about the dooney and bourke bags that will be available?

  • My friends and I are the Wilderness Explorers you have in the gallery! Thanks for the recognition of all the hard work my friends did on our costumes!

  • My sister and I showed our #Disneyside in the Half Marathon like Mike Wazowski. It was amazing !! The best running of my life.

  • Congratulations on joining the Disney Parks Blog writing team! I love showing my #DisneySide while doing what I call ‘almost running’. The beautiful colors in this Dopey outfit would give put a spring in my steps!

  • Welcome to the blog Ms. Aubrey!

    • Thank you 🙂

  • I love Disney-Bounding, especially for RunDisney events! For the 2013 Princess Half Marathon I did a tribute to one of my favorite princesses, Ariel, and had a “Kiss the Girl”-inspired running outfit. For the 2014 Tower of Terror 10-miler I went as Vanellope Von Schweetz from “Wreck It Ralph,” complete with multi-colored clips in my hair (trying to imitate the candy that is in her hair).

    • I would love to see the Vanellope von Schweetz outfit! Multi-colored clips is a great idea. I bet it looked fantastic!

  • Glad to see you writing on the blog! DisneyBound outfits are great, helps when I need to justify buying more running shoes.

  • But Dopey had brown shoes!

    • That’s the great thing about “DisneyBound” – you can always use our looks as inspiration but wear whatever works for you!

  • Congratulations on joining the Disney Parks Blog team, I loved your post today and am motivated to begin ‘moving’. 🙂

    Besides, I love the outfit in the photo because I love Dopey.

    All the best,

    • Thank you! I love the colors of the Dopey look!
