ORLANDO, Fla. (Sept. 12, 2019) – Ready… Set… Universal! On February 1 & 2, 2020, Running Universal comes to Orlando.

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.
