Can you believe that this year is the 25th year of the Walt Disney World Marathon presented by Cigna? With only a few months until the big day, we thought it would be fun to bring you a look back on some of the changes that have happened over the years.
Did you know that the first Walt Disney World Marathon in 1994 only had 8,200 runners? It’s amazing to compare that to this year’s event which will host more than 55,000 participants! Besides the size of the event, we have seen course route changes and new looks in medal designs for those that complete the challenge.
Take a look at the video below to see the medals given out through the years and see what will await runners at this year’s finish line:
With amazing sights, spectacular surprises and fantastic runs in store, the weekend celebration is sure to be runDisney’s biggest yet!
