There are several Marathon’s at Walt Disney World each year. There are even 5k runs and events for kids and even little baby dashes that Disney does. This week we talk with Jennifer who has completed one of the Disney half marathons.
Also we have been coxed into actually running a Disney marathon. Well maybe not the marathon, but the 5k “Wine and Dine” run in October of this year.
So we are putting together a Mouse Chat team. If you would like to run / walk / carry us, please email us at Comments@MouseChat.net and we will add you to the team.
When the 5k on Oct. 1, 2011 opens up for registration we will talk about it on Mouse Chat and you can also get information here on Disney’s site:

During the podcast someone mentioned that their GPS watch showed a finishing distance greater than 13.1 miles for the half marathon. They said they overheard someone say that “Courses are longer than the published distance (ex. 13.1 miles) to make sure you run the full distance.” This is completely false. Certified courses, which Disney is one, are accurately measured on the tangents, meaning the shortest route possible on the course needed to complete the desired distance, in this case 1/2 marathon. So if you don’t cut the corners tight, step off the course to go to the bathroom, or run on the outside of a curve you will accumulate mileage beyond the 13.1 miles. I recently ran a marathon and ran nearly 27 miles because I was messing around and not paying attention to the tangents and was all over the course. So in order to only run 13.1 miles during a half marathon you will need to run the course as efficiently as it was measured which is not impossible but moderately difficult.
