2014 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend Enhancements

2014 WALT DISNEY WORLD® MARATHON WEEKEND ENHANCEMENTS

Registration opens tomorrow for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna®, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to share how we have enhanced the 2014 race weekend to be one of the best yet!

All-New Medals… For EVERY event!

The addition of the Dopey Challenge and the Minnie Mouse inspired 10K Medal aren’t the only new medals to be revealed for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend.  Every finisher medal is going to get a makeover!  Every medal, you might ask?  Yep!  We are excited for what our brilliant medal designers are doing for the Mickey Mouse inspired Marathon medal, Donald Duck Half Marathon medal and of course, Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge medal – that’s a lot of new bling that we'll looking forward to sharing!

Men’s AND Women’s Tech Shirts

We love our race shirts, and we want you to have the best fit possible when you take home your race gear! This year we are pleased to offer Champion® Men’s and Women’s cut Tech shirts for participants in the 10K, Half Marathon, Marathon, Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge and the Dopey Challenge.

Course Enhancements

With a reduced field size and carefully calculated corral placements (and more corrals in general), we plan to improve your on-course experience. We have implemented a new proof of time standard for each of our races.  If you anticipate finishing the full marathon in under 6:30 hours, or the half marathon in under 3:15 hours, we are asking that you submit your proof of time from a previous race by November 1, 2013 to help determine your starting corral. We believe this will help us properly match our runners with those of similar running abilities.
