Run Disney Marathon Weekend is coming up very soon at Walt Disney World. The 2020 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend is presented by Cigna and takes place January 8 – 12, 2020 at Walt Disney World.
The weekend includes a 5k, 10k, half marathon and full marathon and of course, to mark the occasion, Disney released a plethora of merchandise for guests to purchase.
The Run Disney Health and Fitness Expo takes place at the ESPN Wide World of Sports and includes all of the merchandise featured here as well as a number of other running related items to make your race magical.
Featured in the 2020 collection is Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Donald, more of the fab five and Oswald. The colors for this year are vibrant shades of blue, purple, green and pink.
Each race includes a medal that is included with registration. For those who register for and complete the Dopey Challenge which is the 5k, 10k, half and full marathon, they get a medal for each race and then a separate medal signifying that they completed the challenge.
The collection includes a number of shirts for each race as well as Marathon Weekend Finisher gear like sweatshirts, zip-ups, tumblers, hats and even ears.
We are loving the ears for Marathon Weekend 2020. This blue is brilliant and we love that the Run Disney logo as well as the castle and Spaceship Earth are all represented. These are sure to be a hit. These ears are exclusive to race weekend as well.
What about that popular Disney merch item we all know and love? Yep, there are even spirit jersey’s for the occasion. There are two, yes two spirit jersey’s released for race weekend.
A royal blue version with the words, “I Run The World” across the back with the fab five. There is also a navy blue and white spirit jersey featuring Oswald.
