Race Report: 2014 runDisney Mickey’s Jingle Jungle 5K

Just in time for registration for the 2015 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend on Tuesday, March 17, 2015 noon, EST – here’s the 2014 race report!

Hands down Mickey’s Jingle Jungle 5K is my favorite Walt Disney World runDisney 5K.

1489270_10205225539221167_4052969539440915045_nIt is my favorite because:

  • It is the only 5K course which runs through Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park.
  • It is holiday themed.
  • There is “snow” at the start.
  • It begins at 7am – the latest start time of all the runDisney 5K’s.

Will you be running runDisney Mickey’s Jingle Jungle 5K in 2015?  What’s your favorite part of the race?
