Yep you read that right, Universal is currently pondering the idea of adding some kind of competitive running race to HHN and we couldn’t be more excited! We’ve all seen runners running along the road, they pretty much look like zombies, just add in the traditional blood pouring from their nipples (yes that is a thing!) and they could just as well be the undead. But fear not, running is not that boring, it can be fun and it is obviously a great way to stay healthy (ironically for this race’s theme).
RunDisney over at the Mouse House has been running for many years and runs very popular events that see people travel from all over the world! The ‘Disney Difference’ is that you can run through the parks, have unique photo opportunities with selected characters and take home some exclusive bling.
So Universal are thinking of getting in the big running business, a process that they have tested over the years with a number of small employee only 5Ks being held. This all came to light when Universal released their usual customer survey which included a number of ideas as special add-on tickets for HHN28. Here’s the screenshot:
It’s also worth noting that the same survey also asked guests what their thoughts were about starting HHN earlier than before, say August, (though we’ve heard rumors of a Sept 14th start) and whether they’d like a VR experience back (Repository sequel).
I mean, where do they get their ideas from…
Do Universal do a version of @runDisney?

Whether Chris inspired this choice or not (likely not as they have already prepped with employee only 5Ks) it has to be seen that us at HHNU cannot be more excited for this idea! We think it would be great and would LOVE to run a 5K whilst getting chased by Scareactors – it is GENIUS. Please do it!!
Would you love to see this? Would you take part? Let us know!
