Running the Disney marathon weekend with my Deaf friend

Earning My Ears

First time marathon weekender! My Deaf friend and I are running together. What kind of disability services are provided for DHH Runners? Will there be interpreters or will I need to interpret? What should we expect from Disability services when we arrive?

You might try asking on the runDisney Forum. We get very few posts here in the disABILITIES Forum about the races. The only thing I found on the website was under an FAQ about wearing headphones, which indicated "audio messages played throughout the course to ensure the safety of all runners" -- whether those audio messages are in specific locations and thus a sign may also be placed, I don't know. Oddly, I didn't find anything on the website about disability services for runDisney.

Good luck!
