The 2019 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend makes its return to the Walt Disney World Resort for its 10th anniversary from October 31 – November 3, 2019 and Disney has released a couple of interesting new offerings just for the marathon. With registration opening tomorrow, March 19, 2019 at 10:00 am (EST), get a taste of some exciting new enhancements coming to the celebratory weekend:
At this year’s Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend, all 5K participants will receive a tech shirt, just like 10K, Half Marathon, and Challenge runners. Participant shirts are one of several amenities included as part of race registration.
New for this year, the Disney Fall Feast 5K will be making its way to Epcot, where participants will have the opportunity to run, walk or jog their way around the world for the first time during this event. Race themes and medals will be preview in the coming months!
Also new to this year’s event, celebrate a race well-run during the weekend-exclusive Post-Race Party, now with an earlier entry time. Experience all the excitement of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival beginning at 5:00 pm. After-hours fun, including special 10th Anniversary entertainment and rare characters, will begin at 10:00 pm. Participants of the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon and Disney Two Course Challenge automatically receive entry with their registration and additional tickets for friends and family may be purchased starting tomorrow.
Friends and family also play an important part in a runner’s experience during a runDisney race weekend. For the 2019 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend, spectators can now join the ChEAR Squad for both the 10K and the Half Marathon races. The ChEAR Squad Packages include a variety of amenities as well as reserved finish line seating, perfect for seeing your runner’s most magical moment.
