On Saturday morning, it's "Runners to your mark!" for the WALT DISNEY WORLD Half Marathon presented by CIGNA. 2012 will mark the 15th anniversary of the Half Marathon race and we're celebrating with a special edition commemorative Donald Duck medal for all of our participants. Whether you're a first timer or veteran, this race is perfect for you. The 13.1-mile course will lead you through Magic Kingdom Park on your way to a thrilling finish at Epcot.
**Dates, times and prices subject to change. All races are subject to capacity limits and may close at anytime.**
There will be no race day registration.
To compete in the Walt Disney World Half Marathon you must be 14 years of age of older.
All athletes entering the Half Marathon must maintain a 16-minute per mile pace or faster throughout the entire race. Anyone not able to maintain a 16-minute per mile pace may be picked up and transported to the finish. You may be picked up at any point along the course for not maintaining a 16-minute per mile pace.
We suggest you train for a 15-minute per mile pace or faster to allow time for breaks (restroom breaks, photo opportunities, etc.).
If you believe you will finish the Half Marathon in less than 2 hours and 45 minutes, proof of time is required for start corral placement.
Proof of time should include name of race, year, distance and time finished (i.e. 2011 Walt Disney World Half Marathon - 1:44). If you do not have a proof of time to submit, list N/A at the point of registration. Proof of time must be provided from a race 10K or longer. All forms of proof of time must be from a race after July 1, 2009. If you do not provide proof of time you will be placed in the last start corral.
