Ready to run the Pride Lands? runDisney just announced a brand-new installment of its Virtual Series with three 5Ks themed after a true classic: The Lion King. As with previous runDisney virtual events, this summer series is great because you don't have to trek down to Disney to earn yourself a shiny medal (more on that part ahead). All you have to do is sign up for one of the 5Ks on rundisney.com (or sign up for all three and do the Virtual Challenge), then complete your run wherever you want: a treadmill, sidewalks, trails, or roads. The window to complete each race lasts from June 1 to August 31, so time to get training!
Now, let's talk about the goods. Each race name links up to a different version of The Lion King — The Timeless Classic, The Broadway Phenomenon, and The Reimagined Classic — to celebrate the three ways this story has been told since the 1994 release of the first animated version. Each medal matches its edition, and you can earn a fourth medal by completing all three races. Enticed? Get a glimpse of the medals ahead, and start practicing your victory roar.
