    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    Yeah, unfortunately with the inclusion of the hotel package, it’s quite pricey. If I see any other charities post that they’re available, I’ll try to mention it here!

    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    For anyone looking for a charity bib, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society/Team in Training will be opening their registration tomorrow, April 21st at 2:00pm ET. FYI - You are able to get a bib-only registration for the single distance events (I believe it’s a $1600 minimum fundraising amount regardless...

    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    Absolutely insane. I want to say the 2021 races (which were capped much lower, and eventually didn’t happen) took longer to sell out than today. I wonder if we’ll see more registrations trickle through over time, or if that was literally it.

    Saw this on the runDisney Marketplace FB page: “Please consider Sophie and Madigan's Playground (https://www.facebook.com/Sophieandmadigansplayground/)!! Charity groups aren't allowed to take registrations yet, but if you send an email to Jack at info@sophieandmadigansplayground.org we can let...

    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    I agree, GKTW as a wonderful charity to run for - I ran the WDW Half this past January on their behalf. However - they started taking an interest list for W&D, Marathon Weekend, and Princess a few weeks ago, and I’ve heard their waitlist for Dopey is full. The other distances might still have...

    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    Right? Like any other “normal” event (a la Ticketmaster, etc). It’s terrible. I know there are bigger things in life, but it’s rather frustrating to see this crumble and fail time and time again…

    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    Someone said they logged in from their phone at 12:30, while in a car, and were directed immediately to the site. This queue randomizer is absolute garbage. I am so sorry to anybody who didn’t get the races they were looking for. What a cluster…

    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    That was absolutely the worst the registration experience ever. 3.5 hours later, and I finally got in. I had several browsers open, tried different variations of when I joined the queue prior to the site crashing, and they were all over the place with wait times. I waited about 20 minutes once...

    I believe this is the runner you are referring to? https://www.instagram.com/joggingjacksparrow/ I’ve never seen him on the course, but just from the photos and videos, it’s so amazing that he can stay in character and run in costume the whole time!

    Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

    The 90s retro graphics theme is absolutely amazing! I love the inclusion of the old park icons. Makes me wish I had it in me to do the full, but I have to be realistic and stick to the half. 😂 Still wish the kids races were returning…

    How many runDisney miles have you run?

    Haha, I can barely stand still without tripping myself, much less run in a straight line! 😂 I did purposely try to take the turns a bit wider and drift to the sides as much as possible during the 10K/10 Miler to gain back some mileage. Well, until about mile 7/8 - then I was focused on just...

    How many runDisney miles have you run?

    Right? I’m all about that final “leave it all on the course” sprint down the home stretch. Don’t tell me it’s coming up and then fake me out! 😂

    How many runDisney miles have you run?

    To be fair, I never heard them make an announcement before the race about the course being shortened. I passed the mile 3 marker and knew it couldn’t be right (didn’t “feel” right and my tracker didn’t go off), then when we didn’t hit the out and back portion. Was the YouTuber doing a...

    How many runDisney miles have you run?

    Due to the typical course dodging and weaving, my GPS registered roughly a combined .6 miles of extra distance over the 3 races. If it’s okay with everyone, I’m going to go ahead and use them as “credits” towards the missing distance for Everest and add the full 19.3 miles. @Texas84, would you...

    runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend

    As someone who is a bit of a germaphobe, I totally understand the phone thing! 😂 But I love that about the finish line! There are times during the races, usually towards the end when everyone tends to be a little quieter/focused, when I’ll look and around and just be amazed at how there are so...

    runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend

    That’s so great, especially about Thursday. I know how incredibly difficult it must be for the race officials to make weather-related decisions, but they did an amazing job ensuring everyone was safe. We got caught up in the traffic jam coming into DAK and made it to the starting area 20 minutes...

    It was so great to finally meet you in person!! I apologize for my super awkward hello, especially since I know you guys were dealing with all of the chaos that is bib check. 🙂 I hope everything went smoothly for you this weekend!

    runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend

    I’m so bummed they cut the course, but obviously thankful that the weather held out. Super humid, but no rain, and especially glad for no lightning! I’m assuming I’ll make up my remaining .42 miles during the next two races through weaving. I would’ve run it in the parking lot afterwards, but my...
