The 2017 runDisney Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend (presented by MISFIT) is just around the corner, and today, Disney released pictures of the medal designs! They follow a “travel around the world” theme with medals designed to look like a luggage tag, plane ticket, and passport. One might wonder why this theme matches the food and wine race. That is until you imagine the many countries around the world showcase that highlight food from their own culture. It’s like a culinary trip around the world! Here is a peek at the new designs to get you motivated for running to the end.
