Last weekend, I cheered friends from afar as they ran through Walt Disney World during runDisney’s annual marathon weekend.
Some ran the family fun run and other ran the inaugural 10K. Some ran the half and others ran a full 26.2 miles on Sunday morning.
More than 50,000 runners participated in the WDW Marathon weekend last week, and among them were about 7,000 runners who ran ALL THE RACES as part of the inaugural Dopey Challenge.
That’s right. Four Days. Four races. 48.6 miles and six incredible medals.
Last year I ran the Goofy Challenge (a half marathon and a full marathon over two days). I decided to skip the event this year and cheer from afar. And in 2015, I’m planning to return to the WDW and complete the Dopey Challenge.
And I think I *might* be able to convince Meri to tackle her first marathon at the same time! Who else is with us? We’re taking names!

Congratulations to all the Dopey Challenge finishers and all marathon weekend participants!
Have you ever run a runDisney “challenge?” Would you consider running Dopey?
