The 411 on the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend Expo

in Disney News & Events


It’s that time again! The Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend by Cigna begins January 9, 2019. As you prepare yourself for the weekend ahead, let’s take a look at what’s new and things you don’t want to miss at this year’s runDisney Health & Fitness Expo at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

The runDisney Health & Fitness Expo is open to the public over the next four days. This is where you’ll find everything you need for race weekend. The hours of operation are:

-Wednesday, January 9: 10 a.m.-8 p.m.
-Thursday, January 10: 10 a.m.-7 p.m.
-Friday, January 11: 9:30 a.m.-7 p.m.
-Saturday, January 12: 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

The first thing you want to grab is your race bib and shirt pick-up. Every runner must pick up their own race bib at the Expo at least one day prior to their race(s). The bibs can be picked up inside the HP Field House. A valid photo ID and signed waiver are required before the volunteers will release your bib(s) to you. If you are unable to print your waiver in advance, there are computers & printers available in the HP Field House. After grabbing your race bib(s), head to the VISA Athletic Center to grab your adorable participant race shirts and gEAR bag. The exception to this are all participants in the Dopey Challenge or Disney Castaway Cay Challenge. These two events will find their shirts & gEAR bag inside the HP Field House.
