Disney Runners

So since this weekend is marathon weekend at WDW I was wondering if anyone on here has ever done any of the Disney runs. I'm doing my first one in Sept and am planning a week long trip the same time.

So, any other runners? Did you dress up?

The one in September is just a ten mile night run. This weekend was a half and a full marathon.

Check out the official run disney website at rundisney.com. It will list all the upcoming races and most will have all the information listed for them (some of them haven't had the sign-ups opened up yet but check back).
I'm planning on doing the tower of terror ten mile in september. The registration for that starts Feb 14th.

What is the name of the App?

Where do you actually run for the 10 mile race?

Hey mate

My first disney run and actually my first time visit to WDW so not sure where you actually run.

Am using the app called "Get Running" and finding it great. Best I have been training for ages as it gives you a clear target to reach. I used "Ease into 5k" but did not find it as good - a bit clunky and not as clear.

They haven't released too many details about the tot10 yet. Im guessing they will a little closer to Feb 14. I do know that you finish at HS, and that you get to be in the park until 3am. I'm guessing that it will be just as amazing as the other Disney runs. Do a YouTube search for Disney marathon. My goal next year is to do one of the 1/2 marathons.

Hey everyone,

I just got home from Marathon weekend where I finished the 5k, my 10th half, and my first full which combined made my first Goofy. I only have a moment to post this, but there are a few runners on this board, and I'd be happy to talk about my experience after I've unpacked and come off the high that I'm feeling from wearing my Goofy medal all day at the parks yesterday.

Christopher

Congrads on your Goofy Christopher77!!

Love to hear more about your experiences doing the run when you get time - especially how the nights works and the logistics of it all.

I'm 13.1 miles less spectacular than Chris I did the 5K, the half and the second portion of the full relay.

I'll be in DL for the Tinkerbell Half at the end of this month. RunDisney and race medals are my drug.

Would love to talk shop with y'all.
