Walt Disney World Marathon Celebrates 20th Anniversary in January 2013

The 20th Anniversary edition of the Walt Disney World Marathon will be held the weekend of January 10-13, 2013.


A record field of more than 65,000 runners, including several well-known running legends and celebrities (like Drew Carey, Gilles Marini, and Joey Fatone), will be participating, making this the largest marathon festival weekend in America.

Unique features await the marathon runners – a new Mickey Mouse medal, enhanced entertainment along Mile 20 to commemorate the 20th anniversary, a post-race party at Downtown Disney, and some new course twists (the 26.2-mile route goes through the Walt Disney World Speedway and Champion Stadium).

Spectators are welcome, and there are reserved seating packages available in addition to a limited number of complimentary spots.
