RunDisney Announces the Dumbo Double Dare!

While I haven't gotten my first taste of a RunDisney race yet (my first will be the Princess half marathon in 2 months), my friend, Amanda, and I have already started to plan to get our Coast to Coast medals by running the Disneyland half next Labor Day weekend.  Neither one of us has ever been to Disneyland before, and it will be a fun girls weekend "runcation".

I was browsing Facebook yesterday when I saw that RunDisney had posted a video with an announcement

I got soooo incredibly excited!!  AND....they're doing a mini-Goofy like challenge and calling it the "Dumbo Double Dare" - you run the 10k on Saturday and half marathon on Sunday!  You get a medal for each race and then a special medal for completing the Double Dare.  Those, along with our Coast to Coast Challenge will make 4 medals!  Talk about some serious bling!

I was debating on going Goofy in 2014, but I think being in an inaugural race would be way cooler, so Goofy is going on the back burner for a few years...maybe I'll wait and run it during the 25th anniversary of the WDW marathon...who knows!

Registration opens on January 22nd, but if you're attending the WDW marathon weekend you can sign up early at the expo.  You can find all the information here. (Make sure you save me a spot!)

So...will you be doing the Dumbo Double Dare?

Until next time,



  1. That is so cool! I ran a Hat Trick this year which was a 5k and 10 on Sat and a half on Sun. It was tough and awesome all at the same time!

  2. Looks fun, I ran Disney Marathon 10 years ago and loved it, thinking of Goofy's Challenge in 2014 :)

  3. I am definitely in for this!

    2015 is the 10 year anniversary of Goofy! I will be doing it then I think.


Your comments make me smile :)
