    WDW Marathon Weekend is back!

    Looks like in person Run Disney events are back at WDW. WDW Marathon weekend is January 5-9, 2022! Hoping to get in and do the Dopey Challenge. Been waiting for this to come back!

    i still cant bring myself to travel for a run event at WDW. I've been running half marathons for several years now (will have three in three months later this year) but just never got the bug to travel for a run. My lack of desire is compounded with the fact my wife is not a big fan of repeat visits every year - so this will have to wait for me. I have so many friends ready to run Princess next year.

    The 2020 Disney World Half Marathon was my first Run Disney event. I was always skeptical of "paying to run". But I had a blast. The whole vibe of that weekend was very cool. Everything from the festival/check in, the run itself, and the runners in the parks with their shirts and medals. Going through MK before the sun is up, running down an empty Main Street was worth it alone. The worst part of the event is actually walking to the starting corrals. I can live with that. LOL. The Disney runs are no doubt pricey, but Disney does a good job with the events. It was kind of a joke the past couple of weeks that I was going to sign up for the Dopey Challenge. But when I couldn't get in the half marathon, I said let's just do this!

    oh I've done a ton of Disneyland runDisney events. They've always been a blast - but I guess I don't have to fly or pay for a hotel which tends to change the vibe a little but definitely still fun being in the parks, etc.
