Dumbo Double Dare – Planning/Packing List

 I have been looking forward to this race, since I registered for it back in February – as of today, the countdown is at 46 days!


First, What is the Dumbo Double Dare?  It’s a challenge race at Disneyland that consists of a 10K (6.2 miles) on Saturday and a Half Marathon (13.1 miles) on Sunday!  Not only will I be bringing home the 10K, Half and Challenge medals, but I will also bring home the coveted Coast to Coast Medal. This medal means that within the same calendar year, I will have run a Half Marathon at each US Disney Park – One at Disney World and one at Disneyland.  I ran the Walt Disney Half Marathon earlier this year and couldn’t pass up the unique opportunity to do this during such a big birthday year!


Now onto the important stuff, what do you need to run in a RunDisney Challenge race?

Running Stuff:

  • Shoes – probably two pair!
  • Socks
  • Running shorts/shirts/costumes
  • Sunglasses
  • GU!
  • Headphones – yes I know that they don’t like you to wear them, but there are some sections of road that are boring.  I will take them out for the park and entertainment portions.
  • Running Watch
  • Printed Waiver – so I don’t have to worry about printing when I’m there!
  • Compression Sleeves
  • Glide
  • Nuun
  • Hair Ties!
  • I Run 4 Lauren temporary tattoos

Park Stuff:

  • Granola Bars
  • Collapsible Water Bottle – maybe!
  • Ziplock Bag (for phone)
  • Extra charger for phone
  • Hips Sister – Visit here for more info! Shout out to Denise for sharing this product with me – Visit her Facebook Page!
  • Pennies and quarters for the penny press machines

Normal Travel Stuff:

  • Toiletries
  • Ibuprofen
  • Advocare Nighttime Recovery
  • Chap stick
  • Three extra outfits – one for the park on Saturday, one for whatever Sunday might bring and something comfy to fly the red eye home Sunday night! Perhaps a sundress in case we want to go out to dinner!
  • Flip Flips
  • Small first aid kit

Things to be planned:

  • Must see in both parks
  • Must see sights in LA
  • What to Eat: Meals, Character Dining or outside park options

What do you think – did I miss anything?  I welcome feedback – I want to make the most of this trip!

    Love this list! I would add an extra pair of compression sleeves for the flight home because that is a loooooooog flight home to Tampa from CA and you don’t want to chance blood clots or muscle cramps.

    I am so jealous of your Double Dare – Coast to Coast experience. This is on my race bucket list. I can’t wait to live vicariously through your experiencing. Can you run with a flat Run DMT? lol 😉
