Gear up for the Holidays!


While summer just officially started last week, Disney has been looking ahead to the holiday season, releasing details on the 2024 edition of Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, Jollywood Nights at Hollywood Studios, and other holiday events. Now, we’ve also gotten our first look at the medals for runDisney’s 12Ks of Christmas Virtual Races.

The 12Ks of Christmas is made up of “three virtual 4K races hosted by favorite Disney friends.” The virtual 4Ks are made up of three courses “hosted” by Donald & Daisy, Pluto, and Goofy respectively. As runDisney breaks down in their rules, “Participants track their own times, and completion is based on the honor system. Once you complete your run, visit the finisher website to submit your finish time and download your race certificate.”

If you complete the courses in the allotted time — between December 1st and December 31st — you’ll receive the special medals that double as Christmas ornaments. There are four medals, one for each of the races, plus a challenge medal for completing all three.

There’s one featuring Donald and Daisy…


… one with Pluto


… one with Goofy


… and the challenge medal, featuring all four of those characters, plus Micky and Minnie themselves, all decked out in their holiday best.


If you complete all three races and earn the challenge medal, all four will be shipped “at the conclusion of the event completion timeframe” to the physical address you submitted during the event registration process. In addition to all four medals, you’ll also be able to “unwrap exclusive swag like a long-sleeve hooded shirt, a holiday Corkcicle mug and a box of Twinings holiday tea. Talk about a happy holiday!”


If this all sounds appealing you, registration for the event opens up on July 9th, and costs $267. As with other runDisney events, fees for the runDisney Virtual 12Ks of Christmas are “non-refundable and include a separate processing fee.” Disney also “reserves the right to revoke any registration for any race for any reason in its sole discretion with refund of any applicable registration fees being the sole remedy of any such refusal and/or revocation.”


Get into the Christmas spirit early — and maybe inspire yourself to take part in the 12Ks of Christmas — by taking a look at these four runDisney medals that double as Christmas ornaments. Stay tuned to DFB for more runDisney coverage.
