Hey everyone, you might know me from my channel, where I document my adventures around the globe. This time, I took on a challenge that was both physically and logistically demanding: running the Disney 10K on Marathon Weekend… in my Rivian!
Now, let me tell you, Disney marathons are a whole different beast. The atmosphere is electric, the courses are scenic, and let’s be real, there’s nothing quite like running past your favorite Disney Characters while you’re gasping for breath. But adding camping in my Rivian to the mix? That was next-level epic.
I rolled into Fort Wilderness the day before the race, my trusty Rivian packed to the brim with camping gear, running shoes, and enough snacks to fuel a small army. Setting up camp under the Florida stars was the perfect way to unwind and get prepped for the big day.
Race morning, I woke up feeling surprisingly energized. After a quick breakfast at the Trading Post and a shower at the Comfort Station (because, hygiene!), it was time to show off my mobile home on wheels.
My Rivian wasn’t just transportation, it was my pre-race sanctuary. I popped the hood to reveal a built-in flashlight (genius, right?), and the spacious interior was like a mini athlete’s lounge. Plus, those EV-powering outlets came in handy for juicing up my phone and GoPro.
With my trusty Rivian by my side, I met up with my buddy Nick at the EPCOT parking lot, grabbed our jackers, and then cruised over to starting line where the magic was about to begin.
The 10K flew by in a blur of flashing lights, cheering crowds, and high-fives with Disney characters. I documented the whole thing, from the thrilling start to the emotional finish line where I crossed with Nick (we’re partners in our new That Tracks podcast after all!).
After conquering the course and collecting our well-deserved Chip ‘n Dale medals, we refueled with some post-race snacks and stories.
This Run Disney adventure wasn’t just about the race; it was about pushing my limits, embracing the magic, and creating memories that will last a lifetime. And let me tell you, doing it all from the comfort of my Rivian made the experience even more epic.
So, if you’re looking for a unique way to experience a Disney marathon, ditch the ordinary and camp out in your own mobile adventuremobile! You won’t regret it.

Until next time, happy trails and keep on chasing your dreams!
