Bling! Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend Medals Revealed

I have an item on my Disney bucket list, that is I want to participate in one of the Disney Marathon events sometime in my life.  I know one of these days I will start to train and focus on getting in shape to be able to be involved.  Will I be able to complete the entire marathon?  The first time out, I probably won’t but I will try.  Liks I said it’s on my personal Disney bucket list.

One of the reason’s I want to participate is I want to earn one of the great medals Disney’s gives to the participants.  As my friend, Erin Glover, Social Media Director at Disneyland,  knows I really like the Medal that will be given for the Avengers Half Marathon that will be at Disneyland next month.

Robert Hitchcock, PR Manager/Content Producer, runDisney put out a blog of the medals that will be awarded for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend that will take place in 2015.  Here is his blog:

If you are one of the thousands of runners training for an event at the 2015 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna, and asking yourself, “why am I doing this?” Well I have an answer to that question. It’s all about the bling and today runDisney is excited to reveal all the finishers medals for the event weekend.


From the runDisney Kids’ Races and Mickey Mile, to the Dopey Challenge medal, I hope you will agree these finisher medals are amazing and worth all the training miles you are logging.


As most runDisney fans know, this January we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge. Runners participate in the half marathon on Saturday and the marathon on Sunday, 39.3 miles over 2-days. Once they cross the finish line of the marathon, they not only receive a marathon medal, but they also earn the commemorative anniversary Goofy medal. This one of a kind medal features a spinning Goofy in the middle and clearly commemorates the 10th anniversary. Up for the challenge? Registration remains open for the Goofy Challenge.


Now, for runners out there not wanting to take on Goofy but still wanting to join in on the fun in January, I am happy to tell you it’s not too late. Currently a limited number of marathon registrations remain open as part of theGoofy Giveback, a unique opportunity that re-opened marathon registration for 39 days, representing the number of miles covered in the Goofy Challenge. Your chance to take part in the marathon is scheduled to close on October 24th, or until the race reaches capacity.

I hope you like the medals and I look forward to seeing you at the finish line showing off your bling.
