Registration is now open for Disney’s Wine and Dine 1/2 marathon weekend, November 1-4, 2018. If you’re a runner, it’s probable that you’ve already heard of the RunDisney (https://www.rundisney.com/wine-and-dine-half-marathon) races at the Disney Parks. If you aren’t a runner, but are looking for a challenge, the Disney races are a great place to start.
But, with the high price tag and the frenzy when registration opens, you may ask, “Is it worth the hype?” In a word, yes! As former runner, who has done a handful of half marathons and many, many 5ks, I can vouch for how well done the Disney races are. From an amazing Expo at packet pick up to entertainment and character meet and greets ON the course, you and thousands of your new best friends will never be bored.
Don’t have time to train for a 13.1 miles? RunDisney also hosts a 5K and 10K for more novice runners. Want more of a challenge? Run all 3! You’ll receive double the medals and double the swag with Disney’s Two Course Challenge when you complete the 10k and Half marathon!
While it may not carry the prestige of the Boston Marathon, any Disney-lover will love the opportunity to run through the parks and will earn major Disney bragging rights!
