It’s Marathon Weekend at Walt Disney World this weekend, January 8th through the 12th. This event packed weekend kicks of a fun year of RunDisney events held at both the Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland Resort.

If you are a runner and haven’t raced at a Disney park, what are you waiting for? These fun events are filled with tons of entertainment and character meet-ups and the race courses take you on fun courses through the Disney parks. Plus, with a race to fit every runner, it’s fun for the ENTIRE family.

RunDisney hosts seven race weekends throughout the year. These family friendly runs draw tens of thousands of visitors to the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort to compete in these fun events.

Walt Disney World Marathon weekend is the grand-daddy of them all. 2014 marks the 21st anniversary of the Walt Disney World Marathon which includes a 5k, 10k, Half, and Full Marathon, plus the Goofy Challenge which offers a bonus medal for completing the Half Marathon and the Full Marathon. This year they’ve added the Dopey Challenge – a perfect race for the truly crazy. Those competing in the Dopey Challenge will complete all 4 race events Thursday through Sunday in order to receive a grand total of 6 medals!

Tiggerific Travels has several families visiting Walt Disney World this week who we would like to wish good luck and lots of speed, followed by LOTS of yummy food that I’m sure our racers will earn!

Good luck and Congratulations to Leslie M., Bill M., Laura Y., Rebecca C., the Hubbard Family and the Allen Family! You’ve been training throughout 2013 to start your 2014 year off with a bang! (And lots of medals!)
