It seems more and more people are attending Disney Marathons. I know I would love to go someday. Being able to run around the place I love visiting would be so awesome. I will add that to my list and put it right next to the Boston Marathon.
I found this article over at Stitch Kingdom talking about the record attendance, and the race hasn’t even started yet.
ore than 55,500 expected runners â€“ Disneyâ€™s largest marathon weekend field ever â€“ are registered for the 17th annual Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend presented by CIGNA Jan. 7-10, 2010. This yearâ€™s capacity field tops last yearâ€™s record by 10,500 registered participants and aims to place the marathon weekend as the top combination race weekend in the country.A record 55,500 athletes have registered for the variety of events that make up the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. In 2009 the Walt Disney World Marathon was the eighth largest in the nation and the second largest combination race weekend. The main event â€“ Sundayâ€™s 26.2-mile journey through Disneyâ€™s four major theme parks â€“ starts at 5:40 a.m. near Epcot.
Runners can look forward to VIP treatment as new â€œMore Magicâ€ options have been added. A pre-race pasta party and a post-race private celebration are new ticketed events available to those in attendance. On Thursday, Jan. 7, the Pasta in the Park Party at Epcot will give runners and their friends and family a chance to â€œcarb loadâ€ before the race and see a special viewing of â€œIllumiNations: Reflections of Earth,â€ a nighttime fireworks display. After the marathon on Sunday, the chance to ride select attractions and unwind with a live DJ and Disney characters is available when Disneyâ€™s Hollywood Studios hosts a private Victory Lap Celebration.
