Starting off the power-packed series, go higher, further, faster with Captain Marvel, serving as the theme of the June 5K. Go full metal during the July 5K featuring Iron Man for the theme. End the summer with the August 5K and earn a medal fit for a King, highlighting Black Panther.

Those runners wanting to take on a heroic feat can complete all three events for the 2019 runDisney Virtual Challenge. Challenge participants will earn an additional finisher medal celebrating 80 years of Marvel along with a commemorative coin. In addition to a medal, all participants in the 2019 runDisney Virtual Series can download a digital race bib and a finisher certificate.

  • Hi guys,
    I live in the UK and am doing the series but can’t seem to log my time for June or get an email contact response to find out how to upload my times and confirm shipping to the UK! Help!!

  • Would have loved to have seen a Spider-Man and/or a Captain America medals instead of Black Panther and/or Cap Marvel. A round shield Cap America medal would have been boss.
