Be a Little Goofy…
Many people know the Walt Disney Marathon Weekend for its unique challenge: the Goofy Challenge. Participants in the Goofy Challenge will run a half marathon and full marathon on consecutive days. But for those extreme runners who find running over 39 miles across two days to be know big deal, the Walt Disney Marathon Weekend offers and even bigger challenge…
The Dopey Challenge, named for how its participants feel when they wake up Monday mornings is a grueling challenge spread across four days and all major theme parks at Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida. Participants in the Dopey Challenge run a 5, 10k, half-marathon, and full marathon on 4 consecutive days. Thats right: over 48 magical miles through the most magical place on earth. Sounds fun doesn’t it?
If all of this runnings sounds like too much work, the Walt Disney Marathon offers great options for spectators too.
