With a new friend joining, new “bling” and lots of exciting surprises and entertainment, now more than ever is the time to join us for our biggest race weekend of the season! We’re excited to give you a first look at this year’s finisher medals:

More miles, more medals. Whether you’re feeling Goofy for 39.3 miles or Dopey for 48.6, runners taking on one of the weekend’s challenges will earn this extra “bling.” For some added magic, this year’s medal for Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge features our favorite Goof in “spinning” form! Celebrating its 5th anniversary, Disney Castaway Cay Challenge returns for runners who want to accomplish the ultimate running adventure when they set sail with Disney Cruise Line.
