Disney reveals race medals celebrating 25 years of Disney World Marathon Weekend

in Disney, Events, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend will be celebrating its 25th anniversary when it comes to the most magical place on Earth in January, 2018. To celebrate this momentous occasion, Disney revealed special medals for each of the four races that weekend, and the Goofy and Dopey challenges.

The Walt Disney World 5k will kick off the race weekend, with runners receiving a medal featuring Mickey Mouse and his dog Pluto.

Next up, will be the 10k, where runners will receive this Mickey and Minnie focused medal.

The half-marathon will be hosted by Donald Duck, and that is why he is featured on the medal for runners who can complete this 13.1-mile run.

And of course, the main event deserves a grand prize. This gold and silver medal features a spinning element in the middle and who else but Mickey himself. Runners of the 26.2-mile race will be proud to wear this around their necks.

Finally, for those who are goofy enough to complete both the half and full marathon, or those dopey enough to complete all four races, you will receive these medals to commemorate completing the Goofy or Dopey challenge.

And for those who can’t get enough Disney running, you can combine your Marathon weekend with a cruise to Castaway Cay where yet another 5k race awaits you. The medal for the Castaway Cay challenge is also pictured above.

The 25th annual Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend starts Thursday, January 4 with the 5k and concludes Sunday, January 7 with the marathon. The Castaway Cay Challenges takes place on January 10. For more information or to sign up for these races, visit RunDisney.com.
