Race to Disney Springs for Special runDisney Savings this Weekend

Whether you run, walk or wheel across the finish line (I'm always so impressed by the athletes who compete in wheelchairs!), you deserve some special recognition after your Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend race. Having completed several runDisney races myself—I'm partial to the half marathon distance—I know firsthand how ready you are to celebrate once all your hard work and training has finally paid off.

While you may know that the Cool Down Party is taking place at Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney) on Sunday from 2 – 8 p.m., I wanted to be sure you were aware that throughout the weekend you can find special discounts and offers at a variety of retail and food & beverage locations. Feel like saving 20 percent on your meal at Splitsville Luxury Lanes? Want to score three free socks from LittleMissMatched? Hoping to try a complimentary California roll with your Morimoto Asia lunch? You can do all this, and more, from Thursday, Jan. 7 through Sunday, Jan. 10. Be sure to bring your race bib or finisher medal for proof of participation.

Another favorite option? At Fit2Run, you can get your medal engraved for just $20. Simply stop by the store Jan. 9 – 10 from noon to 11 p.m. or visit on Jan. 11 from noon to 8 p.m. (Bonus: They are also offering a FREE gift to all runners, while supplies last, no purchase necessary.)

For a full list of offers, visit the Disney Springs booth at the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo or you can see the offers in your Virtual Goody Bag online.

Best of luck on your race!
