The Walt Disney World Marathon weekend opened yesterday for registration and the 10k sold out in 7 hours. Yes, 7 hours, which was faster than the Disneyland Marathon and I believe a record. Not sure what it is…

Four Theme Parks and 48.6 magical miles!

Runners can enter one (or any combination) of the runs that have been scheduled, for a truly magical experience through the parks. They have opened up the event this year to include an all new event, The Dopey Challenge.

The 2014 Disney Marathon Weekend, Jan. 8-12, will expand to five days and will include a 10K, along with the Family Fun Run 5K, the Disney Half Marathon, the Disney Marathon and Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge. That creates the opportunity for an unparalleled proposition in the running industry: The Dopey Challenge – running all four timed events in successive days (48.6 miles) for the chance to earn an unprecedented six medals.
