All The Running Universal Details So Far
If there’s anything I love more than running through a theme park, I haven’t found it just yet. There’s something special about racing past lands and coasters and dressing in costumes that makes me incredibly happy!
We’re starting to get all the details for this new race weekend and I’m getting hyped.
I’m running the 5K and covering the weekend as media. I’ll be there getting all the details and sharing on social media @noguiltlife and recapping the event with posts as well here on noguiltlife.com

Running Universal Epic Character Race Weekend Medals Revealed
Runners have many reasons to lace up and toe the line, but a lot of us like running for the bling.
And these fun medals are going to make a heck of an impact on your wall of running fame!
I have to laugh at Shrek being chased by an Autobot, but hey, it’s Universal Orlando! This could actually happen.
The 3D medals will be silver for the 5K runners and gold for the 10K racers.
Epic Character Details
While we still don’t have a race map, we do know what characters we can hope to meet on the run.
And that’s really what this is all about!
- Illumination’s Minions
- Jurassic World characters
- DreamWorks Animation’s Shrek characters
- and more!
I don’t know if Doc will be on the course, but I’ll try to get up to 88 miles per hour if he is! (I kid, I kid- I’m more like 4.5 miles per hour these days ha!)
Are you Running Universal this year? I hope so- it’s not too late to join in on the fun!
