Even though the inaugural Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon this weekend is completely sold out, there are plenty of ways you can still be a part of the fun.
The 11,000 registered runners will run 13.1 miles through various theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort on Saturday night at 10 p.m., then celebrate the achievement at the Finish Line Party at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival starting at 10:30 p.m. You can get into the party too – without running 13.1 miles – by buying a Finish Line Party ticket for $35 (theme park attractions and pavilions will be closed). Get your rest, though, because the party goes til 3 a.m. and will be packed with culinary delights, fine wines, Disney character meet & greets and live musical performances.
You can also check out the event’s Health & Fitness Expo at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex on Friday and Saturday where you can submerge yourself in all things running – everything from new training equipment to running products and apparel to seminars on running by leading industry experts.
Get details at runDisney.com. It’s the ultimate “Runner’s Night Out’’ and probably the most fun you can have without breaking a sweat.
