With the growing number of African Americans getting involved in running, as evidenced by the growth of Black running club events, as well as the continued research pointing to disparities in African American health conditions offset by activities like running, runDisney is an ideal way for African Americans to join the movement toward a healthier and more active lifestyle, combining a love of running with the excitement and magic of Walt Disney World Resort.

This race has been on my list and it's probably time that I start training. RunDisney races regularly feature entertainment elements, music and character appearances, such as Princess Tiana, and she is my favorite Princess!
