Running at Universal Orlando

Running at Universal Orlando Resort

I’m currently training for my fifth half marathon! But finding a great place to run can be a pretty daunting task while on vacation. Whether you’re training for a race or you’re just looking to stay on top of your workout routine, our five on-site hotels have a beautiful trail to take on before a great day in the parks.

Here are my three tips for staying on track with your training while on vacation.

  1. Pack your favorite running clothes

The best part of going to a theme park is being able to wear your athleisure clothes for an early morning jog and a fun day in the park. I personally love to pack my favorite moisture wicking running clothes so that I can pack light and be comfortable all day.

  1. Wake up early

One of the benefits of staying on-site is being able to take advantage of Early Park Admission. I promise you’ll be in for a treat if you can start your run to watch the sunrise and head into the park before the scheduled opening!

  1. Enjoy our scenic running trail

From Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort to Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, the total distance is about three miles. Whether you’re a runner, a jogger, or a walker, this path is perfect for you! If you prefer to avoid the trail, we do have a map that will guide you on our loop around the entire Universal Orlando Resort destination. Stop by the concierge desk on your arrival and pick up a map showing the .45, 1.3 and 3- mile loop.

Here’s a little teaser of what you’ll get to see when you run around our universe!
