Goofy’s Race & a Half Challenge

Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend 2020 will celebrate the 15th Anniversary of Goofy’s Race & A Half Challenge.  Runners compete in the 39.3-mile race (half-marathon and full marathon) and earn an additional Goofy Medal for the effort!

Goofy’s Race & a Half Challenge

This first Goofy’s Race & a Half Challenge took place back in January of 2006 with over 3,000 participants during Marathon Weekend.  Of those three thousand, 78 runners have completed the challenge every year for the entire past 14 years!  Each “perfect” runner has successfully completed 14 half-marathons and 14 full marathons, totaling 550.2 miles!
