runDisney News Roundup!

Trying to keep up with all the runDisney news is almost a full time job!  I didn't want to keep creating new posts for each minor thing so trying to put them all here.  I know I already posted about the marathon medal a few hours ago but wanted to get this out there before tomorrow!

The first non-race specific announcement is the release of the brand new runDisney website.  No longer is it directly linked to the ESPN WWOS site and it's SO much easier to navigate and find things!  There's sections for each individual race, training programs, travel information for each theme park area, race results lookup, a new upcoming blog area, and an FAQ section for overall runDisney things to individual race questions.

OK, now onto the race specific stuff!  The biggest news lately was with the WDW Marathon Weekend, including a race registration discount, but I'll go in order of sooner races.

Disneyland Half  - Sold Out!

I had posted these earlier but it doesn't hurt to link to them again!

The medal was also officially revealed!

Tower of Terror 10-Miler  - Sold Out!

Also posted this earlier....

Wine & Dine Half  - Sold Out!

Someone that was at an expo also posted the Wine & Dine medal on the runDisney FB page...  It was mentioned that the flash blew out the color of the ribbon.  It's more of a deeper purple.

The 5k medal was also seen at an expo.  The ribbon is red and white candy striped...

  1. I totally wish they had more races at Disneyland! I found out there was a Cars 5k (I had heard nothing about it) and was so bummed it was sold out..I cannot wait to run Disney! :)

    Loved the updates!

  2. @Shannyn...Hopefully they add more! I know it's a lot harder to hold races in DL since most of the races aren't on Disney property and it's harder to get permits in the city of Anaheim.
