2019 Walt Disney World Half Marathon

Only 311 days to go!

Some of you may be thinking, “Hey, wait a minute! It’s a Marathon weekend, not a half marathon weekend!”

You’re right. But I have no plans on ever running a marathon, and so for me it will be a half marathon weekend. Sorry, Disney!

Let’s get into the event details, shall we? For some reason, the official website doesn’t list the times. I’ll update this when I find out more information.

Walt Disney World 5k (3.1 miles)
Thursday, January 10, 2019

Walt Disney World 10k (6.2 miles)
Friday, January 11, 2019

Walt Disney World Half Marathon (13.1 miles)
Saturday, January 12, 2019

For information about the marathon, visit the official site.

Challenges:

Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge (39.3 miles)
Saturday, January 12, 2019 (Half Marathon)
Sunday, January 13, 2019 (Marathon)

I won’t be doing this challenge! Lol.

Dopey Challenge (48.6 miles)
Thursday, January 10, 2019 (5k)
Friday, January 11, 2019 (10k)
Saturday, January 12, 2019 (Half Marathon)
Sunday, January 13, 2019 (Marathon)

Another challenge I won’t be doing… But below there’s one I will be doing!

Disney Castaway Cay Challenge
Wednesday, January 16, 2019

This challenge is more manageable for me. Requirement? Do any event 5k or longer at the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend + the Castaway Cay 5k.

I have to say, I’m disappointed that there’s no challenge at the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend that involves the 5k/10k + the Half Marathon minus the marathon itself.

I guess I’ll just have to wait and earn all those sweet medals in the Castle to Chateau Challenge event!

I’m looking forward to the Castaway Cay Challenge. I’ve wanted to go on a Disney Cruise for a very long time!

How that works is you book your cruise, then register for the Castaway Cay Challenge on active.com and enter your cruise reservation number when registering for the race.

So here’s my plan:
Do the Walt Disney World 5k, 10k, and Half Marathon, then immediately after the Half Marathon go recover at one of the spas with a 50 minute Swedish Massage. After that I’ll spend the rest of Saturday and all day Sunday enjoying all that the parks have to offer.

Monday I’ll jump on board the Disney Dream and do the Castaway Cay 5k on Wednesday, January 16th.

I’ve never been to a spa before. I’m excited! It’ll probably be quite an expensive trip, but fun and (probably) a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Work hard then pamper yourself. Let’s do this!
