Dreams Do Come True: Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend
Admit it, you have never—and probably won't ever—really outgrow Disney. Or theme parks, period. Ignite your inner child as you dash to your heart's delight around the most magical place on earth, the Walt Disney World® Resort, Florida! Or better yet, bring your children/ nieces/ nephews along to join in the fun!
Taking place throughout the day on Saturday, 7 November 2015, runDisney will be hosting the following races: Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon, Mickey's Jingle Jungle 5K and Kids Races. The Kids Races has several event categories open to various children age groups: Diaper Dash, 200m, 400m and One Mile (1.6km).
Half marathoners will start at 10:00 p.m. and run under the stars through three dazzling Disney theme parks. Spectacular displays of bright lights, together with delightful Disney entertainment, will make this the perfect runner's night out. To add the cherry on top, participants can enjoy delicious food and wines at the exclusive Finish Line Party held in the Epcot® International Food & Wine Festival.
There will also be a runDisney Health & Fitness Expo ongoing on Friday and Saturday, 6 and 7 November 2015 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. This is not only where racers will pick up their race goodie bags, but also a comprehensive sporting event for enthusiasts. Speakers will share race, training and nutrition tips and there'll be several booths featuring official runDisney merchandise, apparel, fitness equipment, high-tech gadgets and nutritional products.
You can also get a 'Disney Wine & Dine Pre-Race Taste'! The private party on the evening of Friday, 6 November 2015 will be held at the Indiana Jones™ Epic Stunt Spectacular! Theatre. Relax before the big race and be amused by the Disney characters and entertainment.
