Disney has revealed the medals that will be awarded to racers during the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend on January 3-7, 2018.

Disney has crafted some of the most impressive medals to date, loaded with tons of silver and sparkles to celebrate 25 years of racing.

The 5K medal features Mickey and Pluto playing in a game of fetch.

10K racers will be awarded this medal that features Mickey and Minnie, with a Minnie-inspired polka dotted lanyard.

Half marathon racers will get to take home this colorful medal featuring Mickey and Donald.

If you can manage to run a full marathon, you’ll be awarded this beautiful medal that shows Mickey crossing the finish line.

There are also some awards for those that participate in multiple race events. The Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge requires racers to complete both a half marathon and a full marathon. In addition to the respective medals, participants will also receive the Mickey and Goofy medal shown above. The Dopey Challenge, the most difficult challenge, requires racers to complete the 5K, 10K, half marathon, and full marathon. Finish this, and receive the Dopey medal shown above. Lastly, if you’re participating in the Disney Castaway Cay Challenge on January 10, 2018 you can win the above Disney Cruise medal for completing the Castaway Cay 5K run that takes place around Disney’s private island.
