Megan Curham Completes Magical Run As Overall Winner at Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon

Megan Curham, 24, from Warren, New Jersey, came to Walt Disney World Resort and made some magic of her own Sunday at the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon, becoming the second female in runDisney race history to finish in first place overall. Curham crossed the finish line in 1:19:17, followed closely by Jeffrey Schneider (1:19:30) of Strongsville, Ohio.

“I’ve been coming to Disney World since I was a very, very young kid, so I love being here, and I love running…so putting them both together has been amazing,” Curham said. “Coming to Disney to do it is, I think, the best thing you possibly could do because it’s just a lot of fun for experienced and new runners.”

Curham also was the first female finisher at the 2016 Walt Disney World Half Marathon and again at the 2018 Wine & Dine Half Marathon.

In 2017, Giovanna Martins made history as the first woman to be the overall winner of a runDisney race – she, too, captured the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon with a time of 1:19:16.

On Sunday, Curham faced only a mild challenge, finishing ahead of Schneider and Gerald Romero, who came in third at 1:20:08. Among the women, Diana Bogantes (1:22:14) came in second followed by Leah Foley (1:29:05).

The 10th annual Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon capped a fun-filled weekend of races that included a 5K, 10K, and Kids Races, plus a health and fitness expo. On Sunday night, runners and their fans will celebrate their accomplishments at the Post-Race Party at the International Food & Wine Festival at Epcot. In all, nearly 48,000 runners participated in events throughout the weekend.

The Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend is the first of four runDisney race weekends at Walt Disney World Resort during the 2019-2020 race season. Next up is the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna (Jan. 8-12, 2019).
