Going Goofy in 2010

Last night my husband and I (along with 2 of our equally insane ambitious friends) registered for the Goofy Race and a Half Challenge in January 2010. It’s a plan that has been brewing for some time now, but we decided to keep it a secret until it was official. (Sorry, I’ve been holding out on you!)

Are you looking for the ultimate test of endurance? Then compete in Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge where you will run the Half Marathon on Saturday and then the Marathon on Sunday. If you finish both races in the time limit* you will be awarded the coveted Goofy medal.

2010 is gonna be a great year for racing, cause the whole gang will be celebrating the 5th anniversary of Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge.It will be a momentous occasion of, well uh…Goofy proportions. Plan now to take the challenge and be part of a weekend you’re never gonna forget!

*Time limit is 3.5 hours for the half and 7 hours for the full, or 16 minute miles.

Our obscenely expensive $285 registration plus $19 processing fee includes:

• Race Registration for both the Half Marathon and Marathon
• Official Race Handbook
• Commemorative Champion® Race Tech Shirt for Marathon, Half Marathon and Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge
• Specially themed KODAK single use camera
• Goody Bag
• Disney’s Health & Fitness Expo including our world-class Speaker Series
• Event Weekend Transportation for ALL Walt Disney World® Resort Hotels
• Special Goofy Personalized Bibs
• On Course Refreshments
• On Course Disney Entertainment
• Post-Race Refreshments
• Family Reunion Area with live entertainment and characters
• Post-Race Celebration
• Post-Race web site with direct access to your race photos, results and custom finisher certificate
• All runners who complete both the Half Marathon and Marathon will receive the special Goofy medal in addition to the Mickey and Donald medals from the individual events!
• Disney magic you won’t find anywhere else!

358 days to go!

  1. Awesome! The medals are really cool, and Disney does great races. They’re well organized and well supported, so I’m sure you’ll have a lot of fun with the experience. Anthony, at “I Run Ultras,” just did the Goofy challenge this past weekend. Stop by his blog. His link is on my blog’s sidebar.

  2. sweet! it really isn’t that bad! my legs are already moving again. it is going to be a blast; disney does such a great job of putting on the races. that registration fee hurts for a bit but after a few months you forget you paid it. lol. congrats on taking the plunge! 🙂

  3. So exciting! I may be there as well. My good friend LOOOVVVEESS everything Disney, and I promised her if she trains for a full, I will go to disney to run with her.

  4. Well, that will certainly one heck of a start to 2010! You can certainly do it and have been really putting in the mileage. As you get closer, you’ll probably want to mimic the experience by doing a decent distance on Saturday, recovering that evening, and then doing a longer distance on Sunday. There’s plenty of time to do that, but i’m glad to share whatever I learned (or should have learned) from my 48 in 48.

  5. I am soooo jealous! I wanted to do it in 2010 too, but with our upcoming move, I think I should wait until 2011. That is so awesome! Can’t wait to hear all about it!!!

  6. You are going Goofy?! Awesome!!!! Congratulations on signing up. Geez, with so many of my blogger friends all congregating at Disney World for the 2010 marathon I’m starting to think I may have to show up for an encore performance…!
