runDisney reports that there will be all new medals for each event next year and we have already gotten a peek at one of them…the 10th Anniversary Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge Medal. Participants receive this medal for completing the half marathon on Saturday and then the full marathon on Sunday.

In addition to the half and full, other weekend race events include the 10k, 5k and Dopey Challenge which consists of all four weekend races run in succession. You can read my 2014 Dopey Challenge Race Recap here.

In addition to the four races, the Disney Marathon Weekend will feature Disney’s Health and Fitness Expo, where runners pick up race packets, shop for the latest running apparel and technology, and meet industry experts such as runDisney official training consultant Jeff Galloway and runDisney nutritionist Tara Gidus. The expo is free and open to the public at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, which is also the site of the runDisney Kids Races and the Mickey Mile for the littler ones to experience.

There are also additional features for the entire family to enjoy, including breakfasts with Disney characters, Pasta in the Park parties at Epcot to “carb up” for the next morning’s races and celebrate Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge’s 10th anniversary, ChEAR Squad amenities to help fans cheer on the runners, a Race Retreat for a VIP running experience and a Cool Down Party at Downtown Disney to celebrate each runner’s victories.
