runDisney Wine & Dine Medal Reveal

Another exciting medals Monday courtesy of runDisney!  We previously got a "teaser" with the release of the updated Wine and Dine Half Marathon medal and the announcement of 5k medals being converted from rubber to metal.  Today, runDisney released the full lineup of medals up for grabs during November's Wine and Dine Half Marathon weekend.

Kids Races, Holiday 5k, Inaugural 10k, Half Marathon, and Inaugural Lumiere's Challenge Medals (runDisney)
With the addition of a new 10k and Challenge (10k plus the Half Marathon), this shapes up to be an exciting weekend!  This race weekend has been the subject of some controversy since runDisney changed it from a night race (the only one remaining) to a morning race.  Runners can be intense, Disney fans (myself included) are super intense, and when you combine the two ... well we can be one passionate group of people!

Regardless of where you stand on the night v. day debate, nearly everyone can rally around these medals being lovely.  I am envious of anyone earning them later this year - inaugural and anniversary years are extra special.  Nearly the entire event is sold out for 2016 (the exception is the kids races), but if you just have to have these medals, there may be some charity running spots still available.  Sadly, I will not be there, but I think the Wine and Dine Half Marathon weekend will just have to make my running calendar next year.

What was that you said?  You want one more look at the Lumiere's Challenge lineup?  Don't have to ask me twice!  For everyone headed to Walt Disney World for these races, good luck with your training and happy running!
