Now there’s a new reason to celebrate because Disney has announced the THEMES for the 2024 Walt Disney World marathon weekend races!
Disney just released the themes for the upcoming 2024 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend! This event is held annually in January and invites everyone to enjoy a “run-cation” at Walt Disney World. If you haven’t ever run any of these races before, you should know they’re full of fun character photo ops, miles of encouragement from fellow runners and volunteers, and Disney bling that gives you bragging rights for years to come.
Let’s take a look at this year’s themes for each race!
The Walt Disney World Marathon weekend is comprised of multiple races that combined account for 48.6 impressive miles. The upcoming themes for the 2024 races include a bounding Pluto featured for the 5K run, Chip & Dale running for the acorns for the 10K run, a training Donald Duck and Daisy for the half marathon, and Mickey & Minnie to round out the full marathon. Take a close look at each of the numbers in the themes for hints at park icons that will tell you which parks you’ll be running those races through.
