BUT NEWSFLASH…NEW Medal Designs in 2014 for EVERY race… From runDisney:
The addition of the Dopey Challenge and the Minnie Mouse inspired 10K Medal aren’t the only new medals to be revealed for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. Every finisher medal is going to get a makeover! Every medal, you might ask? Yep! We are excited for what our brilliant medal designers are doing for the Mickey Mouse inspired Marathon medal, Donald Duck Half Marathon medal and of course, Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge medal – that’s a lot of new bling that we’ll looking forward to sharing!
Go DOPEY a new official event where you run ALL the races over the weekend and get the a Goofy Medal, a NEW Dopey Medal, New 10k Minnie Mouse themed medal, Donald Half Medal and Mickey Full Medal, and the 5k Medal… THAT IS ALOT OF BLING. Dopey people get your backs and necks in shape for all that medal!
runDisney is addressing crowding concerns and has changed the 2014 registration requirements for starting corral placement and proof of time. If you don’t have a proof of time to submit for a race to support your projected finish time, you will start in the last starting corral. For full details, See the 2014 runDisney Policy here
I have read on a couple blogs in the know that they have actually decreased the number of participants – mainly in the half – to help address course crowding. Yay.
Other good news for us ladies, you have a choice of Unisex OR Ladies Technical Shirts when you register.
Pre-race registration for DVC, Disney Visa card holders and Annual Pass holders sold out for the NEW 10k. The Dopey was near sellout too. The Disneyland NEW 10k and Dumbo Double Dare sold out VERY quickly – SO if you are interested in any of these races, especially anything involving the new 10k race, better sign up EARLY before all the spots are gone. Registration opens at noon April 9th.
I want to do Marathon Weekend some day, but next year, I will be at Tinkerbell at Disneyland the following week ! So many races so little time.
