The 2017 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend returns to Florida from January 4-8. If you plan to cross the finish line in style, here is a first look at commemorative products created for the biggest runDisney event of the year.
Guests attending the Marathon Weekend will find logo products for all races this year. For each race, we will have apparel for both women and men including short and long sleeved shirts, jackets and more.
Guests participating in the Walt Disney World 5K and 10K races will find additional products this year such as shirts, hats, pins and car magnets.
This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Walt Disney World Half Marathon. Look for apparel and other items featuring Donald Duck to celebrate this milestone anniversary.
The popular “I Did It!” shirts complete with a course map on the back of each shirt will also be available.
At the event, we are introducing a new runDisney apparel collection called “Running with Character.” These items are great to wear while preparing for your next runDisney marathon.
Home décor items such as a wine glass, magnet, toothpick holder, and a TERVIS water bottle will round out the assortment.
I’m particularly excited to see a new running shoe ornament created for this event. We offered this item as part of a pre-sale, and will have a select number of ornaments available at the event. Look for new shoe ornaments throughout the year for select runDisney events.
Finally, guests will find the ever-popular Sweaty Bands, Bondi Bands, vehicle magnets, and Disney pins. This year, the limited edition medal replica pins will have miniature versions of neck lanyards from the actual medals.
Guests attending the 2017 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend will find these products and much more at the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. The Expo will be open during the following times:
- Wednesday, January 4 – Noon – 8:00 p.m.
- Thursday, January 5 – 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
- Friday, January 6 – 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
- Saturday, January 7 – 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
