runDisney Throwback: Celebrating 25 Years of the Walt Disney World® Marathon
With less than a month until the 25th Anniversary Walt Disney World Marathon presented by Cigna, we wanted to highlight some of the fun that was had during the inaugural race in 1994!
Growing over the years from 8,200 runners to now well over 55,000, the course has expanded from running through just three theme parks to now weaving the magical 26.2 miles through all four Walt Disney World® theme parks plus ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Check out the original course map!
As is runDisney tradition, each runner that completed the marathon on January 16, 1994, was awarded a finisher medal – a design that also has changed over the 25 years!
Here are few more fun highlights:
