Course


The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ 10-Miler

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ is a nighttime road race that will end at The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Elevating the fun even more this year are a series of four gentle slopes dotting the course, and timing mats that let your friends and family track your progress.  The course begins at Disney's Hollywood Studios® Auto Plaza entrance, then heads away from the park towards the Osceola Parkway westbound ramp, past Disney's Animal Kingdom®, back along the eastbound lanes of Osceola Parkway, and through Champion Stadium at the  ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex as Disney entertainers and characters cheer participants along. The course returns to Disney's Hollywood Studios®, past Lights, Motors, Action™ Extreme Stunt Show, along the New York Street, past Mickey Sorcerer's Hat, and on to a spectacular finish at The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™.


Timing mats are located at the 5K (3.1 mile) and 10K (6.2 mile) splits. Medical tents are located at 4.7 and 8 miles along the course.

Weather

The race will be held rain or shine. If there is lightning in the area, the race will either have a delayed start or, depending on the intensity of the weather, be cancelled. The determination will be made by the Event Management staff. Entry fees for The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ 10-Miler and 5K events are non-refundable.


The Walt Disney World® Resort Lightning Policy

Event operations will shut down when lightning is 10 miles out from the event areas. Event operations will not resume until the lightning is 10 miles out moving away from the event areas. The Sports Manager will determine this using the *Flash to Bang Rule* and weather radar. The Sports Manager will consult with Walt Disney World® Resort Management on a course of action to utilize the operational rain plan, delay the event, or cancel the event.


*Flash to Bang Rule* is applied by measuring the time (in seconds) between a visual lightning "Flash" and hearing the resulting "Bang". This time is then divided by a factor of "5" to obtain distance in miles. For example, 50 seconds between "Flash" and "Bang" divided by "5" equals 10 miles.




Celebratory Charity


The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ 10-Miler Weekend benefits Autism Speaks, an organization dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for autism; to raising public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society; and to bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder. With the support of volunteers and participants in Autism Speaks Team Up program, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ 10-Miler Weekend will help bring the autism community together as one strong voice to urge the government and private sector to listen to our concerns and take action to address this urgent global health crisis. It is Autism Speaks firm belief that, working together, we will find the missing pieces of the puzzle. We are committed to raising the funds necessary to support these goals.


Autism Speaks. It's time to listen


Autism Speaks

Autism Speaks was founded in February 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright, grandparents of a child with autism. Since then, Autism Speaks has grown into the nation's largest autism science and advocacy organization, dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. We are proud of what we've been able to accomplish and look forward to continued successes in the years ahead.
