The biggest weekend of running at Walt Disney World is almost here! A merchandise preview has just been released. Read on to see what you can expect to see.
The Marathon Weekend is Disney’s biggest race weekend! I (Heather) will be participating in the Half Marathon. I can’t wait to see all you other runners out there.
The 2022 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend is taking place Jan. 5 – 9, 2022.
It doesn’t matter if this is your first runDisney event or 30th, it is always a magical experience. Over the several races I have done, I have learned some helpful tips!
Not sure what to pack for your runDisney race-cation? Check out my five must-pack items. Planning on getting in some warm-up or shake-out runs? Check out my where to run guide when visiting Walt Disney World.
Also be sure to check out what every Marathon Weekend runner should know. You can read that HERE.
Runners will be able to find event exclusive merchandise at the Expo. Every runner must attend the Expo to receive their race bib. Only minors can get their bibs picked up by a parent or guardian. Unfortunately you can not pick up a bib for a friend or family member.
In order to get your bib you will have to sign a waiver for the event. This waiver has now gone digital! Some runners have had issues with races disappearing when trying to disassociate other runners from their accounts. Talk about stress when you are spending so much on a race!
The Expo is held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Marathon Weekend runners and guests are invited to attend during the following dates and times:
- Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2022: 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
- Thursday, Jan. 6, 2022: 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.
- Friday, Jan. 7, 2022: 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
- Saturday, Jan. 8, 2022: 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Time to see that beautiful merchandise! You will earn the bling and now get the opportunity to buy some cool merchandise to show off your achievement!
Here you can see the Marathon Weekend Jacket, spirit jeresy and the 5K finisher tee.
Here is the back of the Marathon Weekend Jacket, a tank for the marathon and a hat!
OOOOOhh a coffee mug and Magic Band. I know my coffee cup from Marathon Weekend 2020 is one of my favorites!
I am loving this Mickey shaped ornament. Usually, you see a sneaker ornament. This is fun!
I don’t know about the rest of you runners, but I am going to have to pack a bag just to bring home my merch!
What do you think of this merchandise preview? Will you be heading to the Expo next week to try and get some? Let us know on the Kenny the Pirate Facebook page. Don’t forget to join the KtP crew page too!
