Race week outfits



This time of year many Disney runners are working on (or finished with) their race day outfits.  Afterall, that is one of the things that makes Disney races so unique.  In the past we have never gone with a full out costume but we do add some Disney touches to our race outfit.

I have to admit that even though I have been thinking about our race attire for several months now, I haven't actually started putting them together. I have the ideas in my head though. I have one skirt bought and that's all. My sister and I will be both running so that's double the outfits. 

Unlike myself, my friend Heather knew exactly what she wanted as her race outfits for the Dopey Challenge.  She knew I enjoyed designing outfits so she consulted with me and I created a little something for her.

I made the design and she printed it on four different shirts ( one for each day of the Dopey Challenge).   Each Race she completes will have a check mark in that box. So essential each day's shirt will look the same but will have more checked boxes off.  She even printed up skirts to match the theme of each race. The 5K is of course "Pluto" themed so a Pluto skirt seemed perfect!




I absolutely love what she did. Isn't she clever?

Okay, I suppose I need to go work on our outfits now.

Do you have you outfit planned for your next "themed" race?

  1. Those are cute outfits for Dopey Challenge. Will you be dressing up for the marathon this year? I have not decided what I will wear, but it won't be a costume. I am waiting to see what the weather will be but probably a tank top and skirt unless will get cool weather (wishful thinking)

    1. We do not plan to run in full costume but I'm sure we will add some Disney element to our outfit. I am so worried about the weather too!

  7. That actually is a really cute shirt idea! I have never run a themed race other than once I attached jingle bells to my shoes for a group run so I jingled the whole time... I have great friends who didn't mind. :)

  12. Those race outfits are great. I've not done a themed race before but I do like creating costumes so maybe I should!

    For my first 10k I was raising money for Perennial, which is a charity that supports people who work or have worked in horticulture. So I made sure I had lots of flowers in my hair.

  13. Such a clever idea! Love it! The best costume I saw at our turkey trot was a man dressed as the grinch with his dog dressed like the grinch's dog!
