Great news for running Disney DVC Members and Annual Passholders: early registration for runDisney’s Walt Disneyworld Marathon Weekend events open today!
I have never seen myself as a Marathon Runner, why? I am so SLOW! But one thing I learned in my years of running, training and preparation is the key. If you have a solid plan and stick with it religiously, will can get to the finish line. The runDisney Full Marathon however, has always intrigued me and well I am going for it next year. I mean look how fun it sounds:
From the runDisney website, the Marathon:
You’re a runner who loves adventure! Your priority in a race is the course. And now you’re about to head out on the most magical course on earth during the final race of the weekend — a 26.2 mile run that’ll take you through four Walt Disney World® theme parks, ESPN Wide World of Sports and the Walt Disney World® SPEEDWAY. From the Magic Kingdom® Park, home of Mickey, Minnie and the whole Disney gang and the wild adventure of Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Park, to the show biz excitement of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and incredible Epcot®, your Marathon adventure is unlike any other anywhere on earth.
Sounds fun right? I just need to get my training in. NOW, if you don’t want to go for the full 26.2, they offer a Half Marathon, 10k, 5k and kids races….really a distance for all. If you are Goofy you can sign up for the Half Marathon on Saturday and the Full Marathon on Sunday….and for you Dopey runners, you can sign up for the 5k on Thursday, 10k on Friday, Half Marathon on Saturday and the Full on Sunday – that is a whole lot of running right there.
Disney Parks Blog featured the special Goofy 10 Year Anniversary Medal..and it SPINS!
Registration will open to the public NEXT week on April 22nd – you can register here! I am getting my credit card on the ready.
