The Newest runDisney Challenge!

26 Mar

Have you heard about runDisney’s Dopey Challenge that was recently announced?

During WDW Marathon Weekend, runners can choose to participate in the Dopey Challenge which would require runners to complete the weekend’s 5K, innaugural 10K, Half Marathon and full Marathon events over the course of the four day weekend! That’s a total of 48.6 miles! For several years, individuals have had the option of completing Goofy’s Race and Half Challenge for the successful completion of the half and full marathon, but this new challenge definitely ups the ante even more!

Runner’s that complete all four events, walk off with SIX medals (from the four individual races, the Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge medal and the Dopey Challenge medal), shirts from each event and, most importantly, insane bragging rights having completed this intense challenge!

You can read the official announcement on the Disney Parks Blog HERE.

It’s an interesting idea. I’ve been toying with the idea of the 2014 WDW Marathon being my first full marathon and had been considering the Goofy Challenge as an option, but now the Dopey Challenge is intriguing me! In all seriousness, I realize it would be a huge commitment and require a lot of work but there’s a large part of me that questions IF I could do it or IF it would be crazy to try having only run a couple half marathons so far.

As someone who has LOVED all my runDisney experiences thus far, I’m sure all four events will be incredibly memorable races!

All of the 2014 WDW Marathon Weekend events open for registration on April 9th. I know I’ll be running at least one, but I will definitely be using the next week or two to make that decision! I’m sure all the events will fill up pretty quickly. Whatever I end up deciding, I’m already incredibly exciting for these 2014 races!
