Universal Orlando Resort to Host Inaugural Running Universal Epic Character Race Weekend in February 2020

Ready… Set… Universal! On February 1 & 2, 2020, Running Universal comes to
Orlando. Universal Orlando Resort will host its first-ever Running Universal Epic
Character Race 5K and 10K and give runners a first-ever opportunity to race through
Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure during an action-packed
race weekend surrounded by some of the most iconic characters in pop culture. Built
on the success of the Running Universal races at Universal Studios Hollywood,
Universal Orlando’s Epic Character Race will provide runners with the chance to race
surrounded by their favorite characters within some of the most immersive theme park environments ever created. 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, including Universal’s Islands of Adventure – recently named TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice for #1 Amusement Park in the World for the fifth year in a row.
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.
