Changes are afoot for the 2020 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. Among the changes are course alterations, a new start time, and new ChEAR Squad packages.
Starting in 2020, the marathon will start at 5 AM, which is 30 minutes earlier than the previous start time of 5:30 AM. In addition, runners will now traverse through Blizzard Beach Water Park.
In an effort to reduce the amount of time runners spend on the roadways, the course will include more time in Epcot. Specific details of the course layout haven’t been announced as of yet, so stay tuned for that.
New this year, runDisney is offering a new outdoor exclusive area for runners and ChEAR Squad packages for spectators. The exclusive area for runners will be utilized to take photos, pick up their gear, stretch, and recover. ChEAR Squad packages will allow spectators to access to the finish line, popular Magic Kingdom viewing location, and other amenities. It is important to note the ChEAR Squad packages will not include access to the outdoor exclusive area for runners.
