The top events of the new year.
Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend
The marathon course takes participants through all four Disney theme parks. Besides the big race on Sunday, shorter runs such as the 5k, 10k and half marathon all are options if you are not quite ready to go the distance. Some participants will go all out for the Goofy challenge, which is running the half marathon and full marathon back to back. The ultimate race? The Dopey invites participants to run a total of 48.6 miles doing all four races. Special events such as character meet-and-greets are scheduled before and after you run. www.rundisney.com
