Has anyone ever done a runDisney 5k, 1/2 or full marathon? I’m thinking about doing the Everest Challenge in WDW in May.
I’m so not a runner and we are quickly approaching winter here in the north east so I can’t figure out why I’m even thinking about doing this in May. But I two years ago I never imagined myself as an certified advanced scuba diver either.
I don’t as of yet have a partner for the event so if anyone is interested, let me know.

I havent but I am also interested in doing a run there. I like the idea of the one in September, the Twlight Zone 10 miler. Would love to hear from anoyone who has done one too!

I haven’t done on epersonally but I know many that have and they say it’s amazing. My ex husband signed up for the Wine and Dine 10K one year so we could buy discount Disney tickets but he never ended up running it (too much fun the night before.) You get a big goody bag full of cool stuff and when you finish you get a really nice medal. Plus, you usually get to design aunique running bib with your name on it so people can cheer you on by name.

@Kjeff760: a 10 miler is way too advanced for me to even think about right now, but that one does sound like fun.
@beachbride1216: Presents? You say we get presents?? This sounds better all of the time.

I have done the Disney 1/2 marathon, a 5K and have another 1/2 coming up next year. Disney races are great for beginning run/walkers. There are people who walk the entire 1/2 or full marathon. As long as you can finish the race in the time allotted you can walk, run or do a combination of both. There are characters along the way that you can get your picture with and they have volunteers along the way cheering for the participants. I knew it was the race for me when along the route there were signs like “slow down! Your at Disney. Enjoy yourself!” The serious runners are put into the first few groups and then the rest of the crowd goes behind them. There races are expensive, but I thought that it was a great race for a beginner.

I’m considering doing the Goofy Challenge for the Arthritis Association in January 2014, and the coast to coast challenge that year as well.

My boss is doing one in January. It sounds like fun, but I think it’s too much for me. I think he was supposed to do the marathon but I’m pretty sure he started smoking again, lol. I can check back in in about a month and let you know if he makes it!

I wanted to do the Everest Challenge in May but we’ve decided to get married in Belize in June so I don’t feel right about spending the cash to do a 5K. I live in the northeast and would have to pay for flights and a hotel along with all of the other stuff you have to pay for when you travel. Talked to Fiance about it and he said we’ll try to get to either the Tower of Terror or Wine and Dine this year and if not the Everest Challenge next year.
I still don’t ever see myself doing anything more then 5k but everyone says it’s training for the first few miles that is the hardest, the rest is much easier.
@shooting_star5711: definately check back about your slacker boss 🙁
@bluehsegrl: “slow down! Your at Disney. Enjoy yourself!” …I love it!!
