Registration for the 2014 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend opens with new race and enhancements for runners

Share
Registration is now open for the 2014 Walt Disney World Marathon which expands with a new race, and promises improvements for runners across the event.

The first of the big changes for 2014 is the introduction of the Walt Disney World 10K. The 6.2 mile timed race takes place on the Friday at Epcot, featuring a Minnie Mouse inspired finishers medal. With this addition comes a new challenge - 'The Dopey Challenge'. To successfully complete this challenge, runners will need to complete all four timed races (5K, 10K, Half, Full). This means that runners can now earn a total of 6 medals!

Also announced are improvements to the weekend aimed at providing a better race experience for runners. runDisney has said they will be:

  • reducing the number of runners that we are registering for the weekend, in an effort to allow more space on the course.
  • asking the vast majority of our runners to provide proof of time (if they have it), so we can accurately place runners of the same pace in the same corral.
  • adding additional corrals, with fewer people in each corral, to spread the runners across the course.
  • keeping the marathon course that was introduced last year for the 20th anniversary.
  • offering women’s cut tech shirts (in addition to the men’s cut) for the 10K, half, full, Dopey Challenge and Goofy Challenge.
