COAST TO COAST CHALLENGE
Do you want the ultimate test in endurance with a Disney twist? Then join the runDisney Coast to Coast Race Challenge! If you complete a runDisney half marathon or marathon at the Walt Disney World® Resort and a half marathon at the Disneyland® Resort in the same calendar year, then you will receive a Coast to Coast Race Challenge medal commemorating your achievement!
Special in 2014, a pink edition of the Coast to Coast Race Challenge medal can be earned by running the 2014 Tinker Bell Half Marathon in January and the 2014 Disney Princess Half Marathon in February. Those who complete this combo of races will receive this newly created medal only at the 2014 Disney Princess Half Marathon.
Also in 2014, participants who complete the Tinker Bell Half Marathon, Disney Princess Half Marathon, and another eligible pair of Disneyland Resort & Walt Disney World Resort races will be eligible to receive the original Coast to Coast Race Challenge medal in addition to the pink version of the Coast to Coast Race Challenge medal.

Travel West to East or East to West, you choose how to earn your runDisney Coast to Coast Race Challenge medal, but you must complete one race at the Walt Disney World® Resort and one race at the Disneyland® Resort in the same calendar year. You must have an official time for each of the races that you complete and each race must be either a half marathon or marathon. You will receive your medal after completing the second leg of your runDisney Coast to Coast Race Challenge. Limit one medal per runner per calendar year.
You are automatically entered into the runDisney Coast to Coast Race Challenge when you register and complete the required combination of races. There is nothing additional you need to do to receive your Coast to Coast Race Challenge medal. At the race weekend where you earn your Coast to Coast Race Challenge medal runDisney staff will identify you as an eligible participant during packet pickup.
Only in 2014 can runners earn each version of the Coast to Coast Race Challenge medal. Each race can only count once towards a Coast to Coast Race Challenge medal. To earn both medals in 2014, four races – two on each coast – must be completed. For any runners participating in an eligible Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend event, the Tinker Bell Half Marathon and the Disney Princess Half Marathon in 2014, runDisney will email you in advance to see which version of the Coast to Coast Race Challenge Medal you prefer to receive.
