Wow, that article was really all over the place!!! But, I too am still haunted by the events of that day. 3,400 runners were diverted in front of me? The 2020 WDW Marathon truly was one for the record books for so many reasons!

    Careful there... after the 2019 WDW Marathon I said, "Well, 2020 can't possibly be any hotter!" Oops.
    I kept telling myself that the heat and humidity couldn't possibly be worse than 2019 wouldn't be too bad because 2019 was pretty bad. It probably helped me psychologically, but the heat and humidity of 2020 was much worse than 2019.

    Climate change? My first Disney and first ever marathon was 2007.
    It was 84 degrees when it ended.
    Other than a few blisters I would take the heat over 26 degrees that happened a couple of different marathon years.
    In fact, I did a Goofy that was 26 degrees both days and even snow flurries running through EPCOT at 6 AM.
    I prefer shedding clothes rather than picking up additional garments at mile 5. :sad1:

    it is quite thick and bulky, so i am glad they screwed it up because they dont have any Dopey ones left so i get refund and free return shipping.

    given i lost $200k in retirement the last 2 weeks, everything helps. sigh

    Hopefully you're not close to retirement age!

    I have now run in the hottest marathon day (and the coldest, I believe), and I will definitely be thankful for all the moderate temperature days in the future.
