As ‘The Real Life Company’, AIA hopes this event will spread positive energy and healthy vibes while giving kids happy memories of sports. This one-of-a-kind running experience combines AIA Vitality’s health message and the joyful atmosphere at Disneyland. I am sure it will be a magical experience for all participants while engaging the community to pursue a healthier, more active lifestyle.”
Mickey and his friends to cheer on runners
Co-organized by the Hong Kong Amateur Athletic Association, the “Hong Kong Disneyland 10K Weekend Presented by AIA Vitality” is the first-ever running event that lets guests run into the theme park and around the resort’s meticulously landscaped surroundings. Beloved Disney friends including Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy will put on their sporty costumes and lead Disney’s Cast Members to cheer on all the runners along the route with special cheers, giving the sporty participants a different way to experience Disney magic.
There are four types of races for runners of different ages to join: 100m and 200m Kids Races, a 3K Family Run, a 5K Fun Run and a 10K Run, with enrollment fees ranging from HK$199 to HK$899. The 10K Run and 5K Fun Run take guests through the seven themed lands in the park – Main Street, U.S.A., Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Adventureland, Toy Story Land, Grizzly Gulch and Mystic Point. Along the route, runners are welcome to stop and take photos with their favorite Disney friends. The event also offers an opportunity for children and families to enjoy healthy outdoor family fun. In addition, part of the event proceeds will be donated to the Children’s Cancer Foundation to support children in need.
All runners passing the finish line will be awarded an exclusive Disney-themed medal to applaud their triumph in challenging themselves. Each participant can also redeem an exclusive runner’s pack that includes a park admission ticket*, an event T-shirt, a Disney-themed running bib, a runner’s guide and more. The runner’s pack can be collected at an appointed location on September 3 or 4. The collection details will be indicated in the confirmation letter to be mailed to enrolled participants.
Special accommodation and dining rewards for 10K Run winners
It is especially worth noting that as the event is co-organized by the Hong Kong Amateur Athletic Association, the results of the 10K Run will be recognized in the Hong Kong rankings. To add incentives for these dedicated runners, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort will present special accommodation and dining rewards to winners. Runners taking part in the 10K Run will be divided into four age groups: 16-19, 20-34, 35-44, and 45 and above.
