Any DCU Runners Out There?

In addition to being a big comics fan, I’m also an avid runner (Spartan and Marathon). And while there had been a plethora of events for based on Unlicensed Generic heroes and licensed Marvel and Star Wars thanks to RunDisney and the SuperRun, DC finally got into the game with the officially licensed DC Wonder Woman Run series held in limited cities in 2019 followed by an official licensed Batman Run in Los Angeles later that year. Today, it’s been announced that the 2020 Wonder Woman race has gone virtual due to Covid 19.

For anyone looking for a fun virtual race! It’s the 2020 DC Wonder Woman race 10k/5K! It’s in partnership with the hot chocolate run, swag is a nice zip up! (Least year was a shirt)

Edited to add link: 2020 DC Wonder Woman™ Virtual Run

I signed up for the 10k.

So that only leaves one question. Why the heck isn’t there a Flash vs Superman race?

Ok two questions. :slight_smile: So is anyone else interested?

@joesergi funny you should post this. I was just looking at some of the virtual races sent to my inbox. I’ve run the Rugged Maniac a few times and an event called the Bubble Run and I had a few messages from them. And my wife told me the WW run would be virtual this year. Almost immediately I searched for the Batman run. Hopefully that one will be next.

I haven’t signed up but I think I will. I am not that avid a runner, so I think I’ll opt for the 5k.

Are you doing any other virtual races?

This quarantine, I’ve done the very overpriced (but with equally cool medals) DisneyRun Virtual Kessel Run, Park Attraction runs and signed up for the Spartan virtual trifecta. (As well as the real Trifecta in 2021, what was i thinking?) as well as the SuperRun and the Royal Run.

I haven’t completed any yet, though. I got knocked on my buttocks and into a hospital bed with non-Covid Pneumonia a couple of weeks back, so I’m slowly trying to get back to my normal routine and working up to my 5, 10, 15k mileage. On the bright side, it gave me a lot of time to catch up on all my comics and movies and to post on this forum. :slight_smile:

I hope they do the Batman one virtual as well. (It wasn’t as popular judging by the one I did (I happened to be in LA for work, saw it, bought running gear and did a walk up entry). I’d love to see a Superman themed run, but the only one I’ve ever heard of is in the Metropolis Illinois Superman festival and I think that’s just a kids/fun run.

@msgtv For the WW run, did anyone get notification that their packets had been sent or did gear just show up one day?

Looking forward to the Batman run. Still would love to see a Flash vs. Superman themed race. (Like disney Rival Run where you pick your side and get a corresponding bib). They could do:

Superboy vs. Impulse/kid flash 5k
Supergirl vs. Jesse Quick or Avery Ho 10k
Superman vs Flash half marathon

Zod vs Reverse Flash
Or
Classic Superman Vs. Jay Garrick as a challenge medal.

I got notification same day (I think) and it was the week of June 22. My daughter hasn’t gotten hers yet. Looked at the original confirmation today, it says packet to be mailed “the week of June 22nd” and it could take a week or to, so figured I’d email next week. I guessing you haven’t got yours yet?
Also, Batman run in September

Thanks for the info!

Nope, haven’t gotten anything. Neither did the others I signed up with. I also figured I’d give it this week and then contact them.

I’m looking forward to doing some of the other runs, but I want my gear! :slight_smile:
