Pro Bowl 5K Run

The race will take place the last weekend in January. Put on your favorite football jersey, grab the family, and go for the end zone that’s just 5,468 yards away! It’s football fun for the entire family as you run through the spectacular Walt Disney World Resort. And there will be plenty of entertainment and memory-making moments along the way!

NFL Action at ESPN Wide World of Sports

The official practice site of the Pro Bowl will be the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Everyone is invited to come out and catch their favorite Pro Bowl players in practices on the field. Pro Bowlers will also be able to honor their former high school football or Pop Warner coach by inviting them to the game. Each member of the winning Pro Bowl team will earn a grant from the NFL Foundation to aid in the development of programs at their former high schools.

Pro Bowl Parade and Football Festivities

It will be a magic-filled afternoon as everyone’s favorite Pro Bowlers join Mickey and his pals in a celebratory parade down Main Street, U.S.A. at the Magic Kingdom. Disney Springs will host even more Pro Bowl excitement during the event.

Mark your calendar now and get ready for some football, festivities, and plenty of family fun during the week-long celebration! Registration for the Pro Bowl 5K Run and tickets for the Pro Bowl will be available beginning October 25. Check out ProBowl.com for more information.
