Universal Orlando Resort™ Epic Character Race
Earlier this year, Universal Orlando Resort™ announced the first ever Running Universal Epic Character Race 5K and 10K. Participants in the event, running February 1–2, 2020, will have the opportunity to meet iconic characters while racing through the Orlando theme parks. Make your race a weekend to remember with one of the following registration packages.
- Race Registration – Participants can either run a 5K or 10K through the heart of Universal Studios and race alongside their favorite characters. Runners will be rewarded with prizes like race gear, a coveted race medal, and a certificate.
- Race Registration + Theme Park Ticket Bundle – Don’t run by Orlando’s best roller coasters without riding them, too. After a long race, reward yourself with full access to Universal Studios™ and Universal’s Islands of Adventure™.
- Epic Fan Registration – Cheer on your favorite runner with reserved seating and refreshments as they race towards the finish line. Don’t forget to dress in your Epic Race gear and take advantage of complimentary parking.
To get the most out of your race registration, upgrade to VIP. For an extra cost, you’ll earn a post-race VIP breakfast and gain access to an exclusive character meet-and-greet. If you’re registered as an Epic Fan, you’ll also have the option to order the Theme Park Ticket Bundle.
