The 2013 Walt Disney World® Marathon, taking place on Sun, January 13, 2013, will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Marathon. And what a weekend it will be – the events include a marathon, half-marathon, Goofy’s Challenge (both the full and half marathons!), the family 5K, kids races, as well as an expo and pasta party! Not running? There are tons of opportunities to cheer on those that are!!
With a course that travels through all four Walt Disney World® theme parks, the Walt Disney World® Marathon route offers plenty of scenery for runners and will be the most magical 26.2 miles you will ever run on Earth! The course starts at Epcot®, continues on to the Magic Kingdom® Park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios® before an awesome finish back at Epcot®. Along the way, you will find many photo opportunities along the way with Disney characters and parade floats. In celebration of the 20th Anniversary, runDisney® has made a couple changes to the route. Between miles 8 & 9, the course will take a lap around the Walt Disney World® Speedway! Also, a run through Champion® Stadium, the spring training home of the Atlanta Braves will be part of the course! A “Mile 20 Spectacular” is also being planned inside the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, but full entertainment details have yet to be released! Also, an additional post-race party will be held in the Downtown Disney® Area on Sunday. The half-marathon (held on Saturday) will wind through the Magic Kingdom® and Epcot®!
