We all know I am the “village crazy lady” (you know you said that just like Moana’s grandmother). I love my runs, especially love runDisney runs. I just completed my first every marathon this past month at Walt Disney World Marathon weekend. Along with about 18,000 of my closest friends, we celebrated 30 years of runDisney history. That makes this announcement so exciting ! runDisney Coast to Coast is back !
Get ready to run…
Fans of the runDisney “lifestyle” are a breed unto themselves. You have diehards that run to run, you have fans that run just for the photos ops and every level in between. runDisney has brought back they events to both coasts starting this year. After being shut down for Covid, Walt Disney World announced they would return to racing with the Wine and Dine Half Marathon in 2021, Disneyland has been missing for much longer. After a 6 year hiatus West Coast Running is BACK !
Disneyland Races Return to Bring Back the Coast to Coast Medal
Not only did they release that the Disneyland Half Marathon weekend returns January 2024. Registration for this well loved and very missed event starts on February 7th Club runDisney. Following with the general public on February 14th. What’s even more exciting, 3 little words, Cost to Coast. Meaning, compete in any two races, one on each coast in the same calendar year, you are awards a special medal. Each race must be 10 miles or longer and you don’t have to register for the special medal, just register under the same name for both races.
This adds something a little extra exciting for Marathon Weekend in 2024. What you ask? Two weekends of running with a special medal that can’t be gotten with any of the other Coast to Coast options. Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend and Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend will have their own unique C2C medal. Princess Half Marathon, Springtime Surprise and Wine and Dine along with Disneyland Half will all have the same C2C medal.
Before you calculate just how many Coast to Coast medals you can get in one year, don’t get the calculator out yet. Every runner is only eligible for one C2C medal in a calendar year. That doesn’t mean you can’t run more than two runDisney races a year. Each one is unique and a great time to be had ! I have been participating in them for years and hope to hit the Wine and Dine Half Marathon weekend this year. Who doesn’t want to run and then spend a week eating around Epcot ?
