This year, the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend “ran” for four full days and featured more than 26,700 registered runners competing in the full marathon. Individuals from more than 60 countries and all 50 states made the 26.2 mile trek through Disney Parks, the Walt Disney World Speedway and ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.
The Castaway Cay Challenge was a 5K course that allowed runners to travel through a lovely island setting with themed photo stops along the way. More than 700 runners participated in this first-of-it’s-kind event.
