Next year’s Disney Marathon Weekend is the first time the event spans five days, and runners have the chance to earn as many as six finisher medals with the addition of the 10K and the Dopey Challenge.
The Disney Family Fun Run 5K takes place on Thursday of the Marathon Weekend, followed on Friday by the new Walt Disney World 10K at Epcot. Runners who finish the 10K receive a Minnie Mouse medal. The half marathon will be run on Saturday and the full marathon takes place on Sunday, January 12.
Runners who are participating in Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge – running both the half and full marathons – will receive a special Goofy-themed medal. Runners who participate in those two races plus the 5K and 10K will earn four medals – one for each race – plus the Goofy medal and the new Dopey Challenge medal. For those of you keeping track at home, that’s a total of six medals for the weekend.
