Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Attracts a Host of Characters

posted on October 4th, 2011 by Darrell Fry, Sports Media Director, Walt Disney World


Runners who compete in runDisney events can be described in a lot of ways – “athletic,’’ “competitive,’’ “inspired,’’ etc. But, after seeing many of the 12,500 runners who ran in the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon recently, the best description is probably “creative.’’

Last weekend’s Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon featured some of the most lavish and awe-inspiring costumes we’ve seen here at Disney. From princesses and fairies to superheroes and more, here’s a collection of some of our favorite runner outfits from race weekend, as photographed by Matt Stroshane. Which one’s your favorite?

Costumes at the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon

Speaking of last weekend’s race, Anton Van Zyl, our 2010 winner, wasn’t shy about going back for seconds as he repeated as race champion with a time of 1:13:14. Carrie Majeranowski was the women’s champion with a time of 1:26:10.

I simply can’t wait for 2013 and the Princess Half, I can’t go this year because it does not fit with the winter break vacations in Quebec. Hope that it will in 2013…. :D
