New Race and Medals Highlight 2012 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

Those who are interested in registering for the 2012 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend (which will run Jan. 5 through 8, 2012) will be pleased to know that two new features have been added.

The Marathon Weekend comprises several different events, including the 26.2 Disney Marathon. Runners who do not want to run the entire course themselves can pair up with friends for the Disney Marathon Relay. Those who complete either race will receive a new commemorative Chip and Dale medal, which is the first new character medal to be introduced since 2006.

Additionally, another new medal – this one featuring Donald Duck – is being added to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Half Marathon.
