Typical runDisney Snack Box Contents

After each runDisney race, participants can pick up a bottle of water, a banana, and a runDisney snack box.

What's inside the box? It varies, though I think if they ever got rid of the chips and cheese there would be mass outrage. A few things seem to come back time after time, and some things are new to the boxes, depending on the race series and the participating sponsors.

Here's what was inside the box for the Princess series in 2017:

  • Alejandro On The Go Cheese Snack (130c, available at Dollar Tree and Amazon)
  • Rachel's Bite Size Tortilla Chips (140c)
  • GoGoSqueez Applesauce On the Go (60c)
  • Oreos 2-Cookie Pack (100c)
  • Welch's Dried Cranberries pack (80c)
  • Clif Builder's Chocolate Mint Protein Bar (140c with 20g protein)
  • small moist towelette

This is what was being served after the 2017 Dark Side 5K:

  • Alejandro On The Go Cheese Snack (130c, available at Dollar Tree and Amazon)
  • Rachel's Bite Size Tortilla Chips (140c)
  • GoGoSqueez Applesauce On the Go (60c)
  • Oreos 2-Cookie Pack (100c)
  • Nature Box Apple Berry Medley (90c)
  • Chocolate Yummy Snack (150c)
  • small moist towelette

Lately the cheese, tortilla chips, and GoGoSqueez seem to be default treats. I really like the dried fruits for fuel during long runs so I've saved those for future training. I've also seen Ghirardelli chocolates in some boxes. Have you received something different from a runDisney snack box? What's your favorite treat? And what about that "cheese"? Yay or nay? For me, it's a hard no on the cheese but everything else is fair game!

Race Report: Inaugural Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon

I had registered for the Star Wars Dark Side 5K back in September 2015, and soon after regretted not registering for the 10K, and then later for the half marathon. The races all sold out quickly so I was out of luck. Or was I? On February 18th,...

Final Notes: 2018 TCS New York City Marathon

My second marathon, the world's biggest marathon, is in the books! At first I was a bit bummed about my slow time but now I'm feeling proud to have finished and very grateful I did not hurt myself or aggravate my injury. I started the race with 53,120 others....
