Last Minute Tips For Running Disney at Walt Disney World Resort

posted on January 5th, 2012 by Darrell Fry, Sports Media Director, Walt Disney World Resort

Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna is here. For those of you first-timers running one of this weekend’s races – or both (there are 6,500 Goofy runners this year) – we’ve got a couple last minute tips before you “run Disney.”

Earlier today, we caught up with official runDisney training consultant, Jeff Galloway, a veteran of all 18 previous Walt Disney World Resort marathons, to glean some insight into nutrition and training leading up to your big event.

Good luck everyone!

No, unfortunately I’m not ready for a marathon. However, my goal right now is to hopefully make the Tower of Terror 10 mile run on my birthday weekend this fall!
