Take a Look at Some of Our Favorite Disney DIY Costumes from runDisney Events

It’s Global Running Day, and the best way of celebrating it (other than actually going for a run) is admiring some of the best DIY Disney character costumes from runDisney events. No need to pull on your track shoes, just settle in and become inspired with these creative Disney costumes:

We never knew you could be this happy while running, but as you can see from these runners channeling Dumbo and Timothy Q. Mouse, you can!

These Beauty and the Beast costumes look simply enchanting.

We think these runners are very Brave.

The more Meridas, the merrier!



Runners dressed as Pascal, Mother Gothel, Flynn Rider, Rapunzel, and a frying pan from Tangled.

THE. FRYING. PAN. We’re in awe of this accuracy.

Not to be outdone by the runner dressed as a frying pan, here we have another runner dressed as Rapunzel clutching a mini frying pan!

Runners dressed as Pub Thugs from Tangled.

We love it when people take on lesser-known characters, such as this duo dressed as a couple of the Pub Thugs from Tangled.

Do you think their collective dream was to finish the 5k?



Runners dressed like characters from Cinderella run at a runDisney event.

Running with a group is a great excuse to get your friends to dress up as characters from your favorite Disney movie.

Did you spot the little Tsum Tsum attached to Cinderella’s dress? We love all the details.

Thankfully, Anastasia, Lady Tremaine, and Drizella did not run in those long gowns.


The Princess and the Frog

Runners dressed as Prince Naveen and Tiana from Princess and the Frog.

There’s only one way to find out whether or not beignets are the perfect post-race food—run a race and then eat a bunch of beignets. We’ll try it!

We love the matching crowns going on here.

This trio has us screaming with delight.

Good and evil working together to finish the race—now that’s commendable.
