Universal Orlando has announced they will be hosting their inaugural Running Universal weekend.

On February 1 & 2, 2020, Universal Orlando’s first-ever Running Universal Epic Character Race 5K and 10K will give runners a first-ever opportunity to race through Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, surrounded by some of the most iconic characters in pop culture.

Built on the success of the Running Universal races at Universal Studios Hollywood, runners in this historic race will have the option to run multiple course lengths, including a 5K and a 10K, through two of Universal Orlando’s theme parks.

Along with earning an “Instagram-worthy” medal, runners in each race will have the opportunity to participate in unique photo opportunities with their favorite characters along the race routes, earn exclusive swag to commemorate their experience and more.

Registration, theme park tickets and vacation packages go on sale in October but training begins now. For more information on Running Universal’s Epic Character Race 5K and 10K weekend at Universal Orlando Resort, visit www.UniversalOrlando.com/RunningUniversal.
