Disney is known in the running industry for its cool race medals, so it should come as no surprise that runDisney has pulled out all of the stops in designing a medal for next year’s 20th anniversary Walt Disney World Marathon, January 10-13. The medal was revealed this morning after a two-week social media campaign called “The Great Medal Caper” in which fans such as you got to unlock clues to eventually unveil the medal.

Trust me, this medal is unlike anything we have created before. It has the traditional round shape, but it features two spinning parts, including a medallion with a classic image of Mickey Mouse on one side and a modern image of him on the other side. The other cool features are two engraved quotes from Walt Disney himself.

And to think, all you have to do to get one of them is run 26.2 miles. Better start training now! But don’t forget to sign up for the race first at

  • Can’t wait to run my 2nd half marathon. I am also running the 5K during the Marathon Weekend!! 2 races…2 days then some Relaxation and fun in the parks for 5 days!! Cannot wait….are you here yet January?

  • My fingers are already holding this medal, spinning it around and around for every training mile I put in. The design is out of this world! The smile that it puts on my face is amazing and will only be beat by the smile when it goes around my neck on race day!

  • Beautiful!

  • I want one, I want one, I want one. And I was just saying I would never run a marathon. I just wish I had the money to pay for and plan the trip.

  • I’m doing the goofy run next year and I’m so very excited to get this medal! Any word yet on if there is a new design for the goofy medal?

  • The medal looks nothing short of amazing! So excited to make this my first ever marathon. Thanks runDisney!! 🙂
