The Walt Disney World Marathon weekend is right around the corner. It’s a celebration of 30 years of running and, yours truly will be smack in the middle of it. While I am not Dopey enough to conquer all 4 races, I will be running my first marathon. All weekend long I will be sharing lots of pics and information. For new or experienced runners, there nothing more magical than Disney Miles, in fact they love to say #EveryMileIsMagical.
Anyone that has done a race weekend at Disney knows that the Expo is an event until itself. runDisney has learned from past mistakes and has instituted a virtual cue for the first day of Expo, to help with the crowds. This has seemed to help with the crowds so far. runDisney merchandise is a huge draw, almost everyone running wants something to remember the weekend by. Disney Parks Blog released today a first look at runDisney Walt Disney World Marathon Merchandise. A totally RAD first look. Since this is the largest race weekend of the season, it goes without saying it will be the largest selection of merchandise.
Not only are t-shirts of every variety available, including the coveted “I Did It” shirt. (Which some will not buy until after the races, superstitions and all, don’t want to jinx themselves). There are hats, Loungefly backpacks, pins that replicate the medals, Corksicle drinkware and so much more. Whether you are enjoying the 5k, finding your inner Dopey, or anything in between there is something for you at the Expo.
