The Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend is the biggest race of the season featuring six races and three challenges all hosted by your favorite Disney characters. The 25th Anniversary of Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend kicks off in just over three months on January 3, 2018! Today, Disney released photos of the official race medals that we wanted to share. This year’s medals commemorate the silver anniversary of the race weekend and feature colorful designs with lots of bling!

Take a look at what you can earn this year, with limited spots still remaining for select races:

Pluto 5k

Starting off the race weekend celebration in the most “paw”-fect way is the Walt Disney World 5K. After an exciting run with fun for the whole family, earn a fetching medal featuring Mickey and his pal, Pluto.

Minnie 10k

Runners, rock those dots for a thrilling 6.2-mile run during the Walt Disney World 10K featuring hostess, Minnie Mouse. This year’s sparkly medal spotlights our favorite mouse couple together with the lanyard featuring Minnie’s signature white polka dots.

Donald Duck Half

Run, don’t waddle your way to the finish line during the Walt Disney World Half Marathon hosted by our beloved friend, Donald Duck. Enjoy a “quack”-tastic 13.1-mile course to earn this year’s medal featuring our feathered friend and his pal, Mickey Mouse.

Mickey Marathon

It’s a four-park celebration that’s been 25 years in the making as you end the weekend celebration with 26.2 magical miles during the Walt Disney World Marathon, with your host Mickey Mouse. This year’s spectacular medal design captures the excitement of the silver anniversary year while keeping true to the classic design elements of Mickey that have been featured throughout all the Marathon medals over the years. Don’t miss the fun spinning element in the middle of the medal!


Our ‘Goofiest’ and ‘Dopiest’ participants, conquering either the Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge by completing both the Half Marathon and full Marathon or the Dopey Challenge by completing the 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and full Marathon, can look forward to earning these medals full of character! This year’s Dopey Challenge medal also incorporates a nod to its 5th Anniversary. Those runners looking to rack up even more miles can set sail aboard Disney Cruise Line and participate in the Disney Castaway Cay Challenge on January 10, 2018. Combine any Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend race with the Castaway Cay 5K, a 3.1-mile adventure around Disney’s beautiful private island in the Bahamas, and earn this medal showcasing the spirit of running from parks to paradise!
