_ The 2021 Around the World 1 Mile Challenge:
 

Welcome Runners!  

Hey all you Goofy, Dopey, Fairy Tale, Rival Run, and Two Course Challenge runners!  If you're like us, then we know you really love earning your challenge medals!  How about earning one more unique bling?  This challenge is a local park favorite, which now has an official-unofficial challenge medal!  

Get ready for the Around the World 1 Mile Challenge!
 
Traditionally this unique challenge is done at Epcot but since this is virtual, all runners and walkers at home can also participate.  Epcot is home to the World Showcase, which consists of 11 pavilions representing countries from around the world, including Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Morocco, Japan, USA, Italy, Germany, China, Norway and Mexico.  At each pavilion, you can find attractions and dining, drinking relating to that particular country.  This is along the same lines as the “Drinking around the World” and the “Eating around the World” challenge.  Here’s how you earn your medal:
 
At Epcot
 
1)    Register for the Around the World 1 Mile Challenge
2)    Bring your medal to Epcot
3)    Place all your magnet flags upside down so that the blank side faces out
4)    Start at either Mexico or Canada and you’re off!
5)    As you drink or eat at each country, flip the corresponding flag right side up!
 
The distance from one country and all the way around to the last country is approximately one mile.  Once you eat or drink at the last country, you have completed this epic challenge!
 
At Home
 
1)    Choose a distance of .09 miles (480 ft).  This can be a loop around your block.
2)    Set up your International food/drink station.  Be creative with the treats that represent each country.
3)    Start your mile!  With each loop, stop at your International station and knock out each country with a corresponding food or drink.
4)    Add each flag to your medal and you experience each country.
5)    “Travel” to all 11 countries to complete your challenge!

This Challenge medal is a must have if you plan on visiting the parks on runDisney race weekends, or any other weekend!  Perfect for Annual Pass Holders, Disney Lovers, a foodies, or someone who appreciates drinks from around the world.  This is a challenge medal for everyone, and even more fun with friends!
