Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

The January marathon weekend is the biggest runDisney event of the year! It is the only weekend that features a full marathon course, which takes participants through all four parks!

In addition to the full marathon, there is a half marathon, a 10k race, and a 5k race. Some participants choose to do what is called Goofy’s Race and a Half, which is when they complete the half marathon AND the full marathon.

But some participants just find Goofy’s Race and a Half to be too easy! They opt for the Dopey Challenge and complete all 4 races that weekend!

There are also kids races, which come with a cute t-shirt and medal!
