This race officially sold out in under four months, which happens to be one of the fastest marathon sell outs in the history of runDisney. Way to go guys!

Did you know that almost 26,000 runners are participating in marathon weekend? It’s going to be a giant runner party all weekend long, and I cannot wait to participate. Of those 26k, over 13k are signed up specifically for the marathon. There will be lots of new 26.2 stickers slapped on the back of cars after this one yall!

Lots of fun new things happening for marathon weekend. This will be the first time the event is stretched to five days with the addition of the new 10k race distance.

——————-

WOW that’s a jam packed week of fun. I am going to love every minute (well, except maybe mile 25 of the marathon?) We are just starting to get back into “race season” as far as runDisney is concerned, and I am getting super excited for all the fun things coming up! (Hello, Dumbo Double dare in three weeks?!?)

Stay tuned next week for some packing and travel tips for Disneyland half marathon weekend. It’s so close!

QOTD: Are you participating in Marathon weekend? Are you racing ANYWHERE in January? Where?

Comments

  1. wow, that is insane! i ran disney a few years ago and don’t remember it selling out.

  2. 8 of us will be there in January, 6 will be running. 4 for the half (including me) and 2 for the full.

  3. My husband and I will be there in January. I’ll be doing the 10K and half (my first half marathon!) and my husband will be doing the Dopey Challenge. 5 months to go until the fun begins!

  4. We were there for marathon weekend in 2013 and it was crazy, I can only imagine what it will be like in 2014 with the additional race/challenges!

  5. I am doing the 10K this year and hoping to do Dopey or Goofy next year for my first full marathon! I have been very tempted to sign up for Goofy this January, but I am flying to CA for the Thinkerbell 10K and Half the following weekend. Plus I want to have the Marathon in 2015 be the first for both my husband and I. We couldn’t do it this upcoming year due to him being deployed.

  6. I wish I were coming to marathon weekend next year, I had SO much fun this year. I’ll be there in February though for Princess!!!
