Just a few weeks away from the 2009 Walt Disney World Marathon, Disney has released information on two new events coming next year:
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Road-running enthusiasts will have new opportunities to run for fun at Walt Disney World Resort this spring as Disney’s Endurance Series introduces ESPN The Weekend 5K Feb. 28 and Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend presented by Lady Foot Locker March 6-8.
The ESPN The Weekend 5K at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will include special appearances by ESPN talent, and a portion of every entry fee will benefit the V Foundation for cancer research. Kids races are also offered.
The Princess Half Marathon Weekend will bring women of all ages together to participate in an event designed just for them – with the Disney Princesses as the inspiration. The weekend includes a half marathon, a family 5K, kids races and an expo.
More information and registration for all events is available at disneyenduranceseries.com.
Registration for both events is open at the provided website above. We still do not have any confirmation that the Everest Challenge or Tower of Terror 13K will return this year, but we expect both to do so and details to be available in the not-so-distant future.
