Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Pluto, Goofy and Dopey – oh my! All of your favorite characters are gearing up to host the most magical race weekend on Earth! The Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna celebrates the Fab 5 and Dopey with entertainment, character meet & greets and, of course, medals! There’s still a chance to earn the whole collection! As part of The Dopey Challenge, participants run the 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Marathon in four days for a total of 48.6 magical miles. Runners who complete all of the races within pacing requirements will earn the Goofy Race and Half Challenge medal plus the Dopey Challenge finisher medal (in addition to the 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Marathon medal) for a total of six pieces of “bling.”
There’s no race quite like the Walt Disney World Marathon. It’s our only runDisney race that takes you through all four Walt Disney World theme parks and the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Check out our website to see how you can earn the Walt Disney World Marathon or Castaway Challenge (combining one 5K event or longer during the 2017 Marathon Weekend with a Castaway Cay 5K on Disney Cruise Line’s private tropical island in the Bahamas the following week) medal as well!
Let us know which race you’ll be participating in using the hashtag #WDWMarathon on our social channels! Follow runDisney on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram.
Can’t wait to run my first marathon with my son. The medals look awesome.
