The 20th anniversary medal was revealed on Tuesday by runDisney which culminates their two-week social media campaign – “The Great Medal Caper”. For the past two weeks fans have been hunting down clues and helping solve the mystery about what the commemorative medals design would be for this year’s Walt Disney World Marathon.
We now have the answers and runners have extra incentive to keep training! The medal has two inspirational quotes from Walt Disney himself, alone with a medallion that showcases both classic and modern images of Mickey Mouse.
“For 20 years runDisney medals have set the standard in the running industry,” said Faron Kelley, Director of Marketing and Communication for Disney Sports. “This medal builds on that rich tradition and is an extraordinary keepsake that celebrates the 20 years of marathon experiences for people from around the world who have run in this time-honored event.”
The 20th anniversary celebration will offer an enhanced course, special entertainment at Mile Marker 20, and a new post race party to be held in Downtown Disney. The 26.2 mile marathon is expected to have more than 20,000 runners this year for the much anticipated event. The Walt Disney World Marathon is the main event of the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna at Walt Disney World Resort, Jan. 10 – 13, 2013.
