Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend Gets Off to a Running Start with ‘Survivor’ Winners Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca

posted on January 6th, 2012 by Gary Buchanan, Social Media Managing Editor

If you were in Disney’s Hollywood Studios bright and early this morning, you might have spotted a glimpse of Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca, two former winners from the hit TV show “Survivor” and past competitors on “The Amazing Race.” Avid runners and athletes, the real-life couple came to Walt Disney World Resort to take part in the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend presented by CIGNA. They are both running the Walt Disney World Half Marathon tomorrow to raise awareness for the “Survivor Stand Up 2 Cancer” project. The couple also greeted athletes and guests today in the runDisney booth at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex during the event’s annual Health & Fitness Expo.

And what better way to start the weekend than with a training run through the park and a chance to high-five Mickey Mouse himself?

We’d love to hear which Disney character you’d most like to high-five in a runDisney event. Let us know in the comments.

I’d love to High-5 Roger Rabbit (since I know that Mickey will always be out there).

Nice photo, but neither the Half or Full Marathon courses go under that arch…

I’d need Phil from Hercules. It would take a Herculean effort to get me to make it that many miles! =)

I would like to high five both Ethan and Jenna a fan since I saw them on Survivor. They are such an inspiration, I was so happy to see them during the marathon and at Downtown Disney today. Wishing them both always a great future.
