Another chance to sign up for the 2015 runDisney Marathon or Half Marathon

Are you one of the runners who didn't register for the 2015 Walt Disney World Half Marathon or the 2015 Walt Disney World Full Marathon before they sold out? I am - and have been depressed since April. I did not register for any of the Marathon weekend events next year because of the wedding. Also, I was still recovering mentally from doing the 2014 Dopey Challenge (48.6 miles over 4 days). Things have changed since then and I have been on the fence to sign up for Goofy's 39.3 mile Challenge but didn't want to do it alone. My best friend Keri really wanted to do the Full Marathon but didn't want to sign up for Goofy. I really wanted to run the full with Keri but she couldn't sign up without doing the Goofy challenge. What to do?

Then the powers of Disney answered our marathon prayers yesterday. An announcement was made for Goofy Giveback - where runDisney is splitting up a limited amount of Goofy Challenge registrations, which opened up spaces for the sold out 2015 Walt Disney World® Half Marathon and Marathon. From September 16th through October 24th, you are able to register for either of these events. Keep in mind, space is available until they have sold out (each are currently at 90% capacity). You can read my 2014 Walt Disney World Full Marathon Recap here and my 2014 Walt Disney World Half Marathon recap here.

Keri and I signed up for the marathon and I am so proud to be part of her first full marathon experience.

Goofy Give Back was inspired by ABC's hit summer series Extreme Weight Loss when millions of viewers throughout the country watched as father-daughter team Jeff and Juliana Macht of Colorado completed the 2014 Walt Disney World® Half Marathon in January. Social media went crazy and runDisney received so many responses from people inspired by the family and wanting to register for the sold out 2015 event. Goofy saved the day! In total Jeff lost more than 200 pounds and Juliana more than 90 pounds.

SEE YOU IN JANUARY RUNDISNEY!!! Both Keri and I thank you beyond words for opening up these races.

    1. There's still time! When we registered tonight, the price was $180 ($20 less than we expected).
