Universal Orlando to host very first race weekend in 2020


Universal Orlando announced earlier today they are adding their very own race weekend in 2020 that will allow visitors to take a runcation to Universal Orlando.

Universal Orlando’s Epic Character Race 5k and 10k will take place February 1 and 2. The race course will take runners through Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure plus offer unique photo opportunities with characters during the race. Finally, runners will be able to display their hard work proudly with an instagram-worthy medal.

While this event is totally new to Universal Orlando, Universal Hollywood launched their own running event last year featuring the Minions. Running Universal returns to Universal Hollywood, also with a 5k and 10k, on November 16th and 17th, featuring Jurassic World. Universal Hollywood is even offering a challenge medal to runners who complete both the 5k and 10k.

Registration, packages, and tickets will be available in October.
