Preparing for the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon - Weekend Heat Advisory
Just like many of you, the runDisney team is making their final preparations for the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon on Saturday, Nov. 7. The Central Florida area is experiencing warmer weather than usual for this time of year and we want each of you to be prepared for what to expect this weekend. Here are a few important tips to consider:
- Closely monitor your pace and do not overextend yourself. This may not be the event to attempt your personal best.
- Stay well hydrated prior to the race and maintain fluid status with alternating water and electrolyte-based hydration options throughout your race and the entire race weekend.
- Slow down and ask for assistance at any signs of heat illness.
As a reminder, all medical stations will have the appropriate flag color displayed according to existing heat conditions. For more information, please review page 33 of your race program.
Any adjustments to the race are at the discretion of the Event Management team and are for everyone's safety.
For live updates follow @runDisney on Twitter and RSVP to our Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Event Page on Facebook.
All of us at runDisney hope you have a safe, magical run. See you at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex!
