@runDisney Races are Selling Out But You Can Still Join in the Fun...Hurry!

Wow!  As a loyal runDisney fan and avid runner (well, kinda avid... working on being a loyal runner) I just have to say that I am continually impressed and excited by this endurance racing program's continued success.  This week, runDisney celebrated record breaking sell outs of two major races within 24 hours of each other:  The Wine and Dine Half Marathon, which closed out with over 14,000 runners, and The Walt Disney World Half Marathon which capped out at nearly 25,000 just 35 days after the opening of online registrations.

What a crowning moment for runDisney, eh!?  If you've ever needed a reason to start it is!  There is a reason why these race weekends are selling out in record time and this just SPEAKS volumes for the growing popularity of this program!

Kicking yourself yet!?  If you missed out on registering for these two races, don't worry!  Opportunities to participate are still available.  Walt Disney World Marathon weekend is slated for the weekend of January 8-12 and runners can still register for runDisney kid's races, the Goofy Race and a Half Challenge, and the WDW full Marathon.  Limited registrations for the Half Marathon are still available through charities and travel groups as well!

You can also still register to join in the fun during Wine and Dine race weekend as well!  There are still openings for the Jingle Jungle 5K, and kid's and if you hurry, you can even grab tickets for the Wine and Dine Pre-Race Taste which will take place at Hollywood Studios on Friday, November 8.  Imagine a private party held on the set of Lights, Motors, Action with Epcot Food and Wine booths set up for your enjoyment!  I hear there will even be live music and Disney characters on hand!  How cool is that!?

And if that wasn't enough, tickets still remain for The Finish Line Party which will take place at Epcot! Runners and their fans can party the night away while enjoying food and celebratory beverages from the many Food and Wine kiosks situated around World Showcase Lagoon!  Attendees will even be able to enjoy special character appearances, live music, and select attractions including two of my favorites, Soarin' and Test Track!

So what are you waiting for?  Don't let these last few opportunities "RUN" past.  Snag 'em up before they're gone and I'll look forward to seeing you there!

I know, I was so sad the Wine and Dine closed before I could secure a sponsor, but at least I found a sponsor for the Ten Miler Weekend in October which is at 91% as of now. :)
