2011 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon
The second annual Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon will again take place at the Walt Disney World Resort and is held in conjunction with the opening weekend of the uber popular Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. This Half Marathon differs from the one held during the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend every January in 3 key ways:
- This is a night time race that starts at 10:00 pm. If you are someone that never liked getting up at 3:00 AM to race in the January version, this may be for you.
- The course is completely different. Instead of the Epcot to Magic Kingdom and back to Epcot course, the Wine & Dine Half Marathon uses a completely different course that starts at the ESPN Wide World Of Sports Complex then heads to Disney's Animal Kingdom for a fun run through the closed park in the dark. Then you head towards Disney's Hollywood Studios and run through that park after closing. Finally you head towards Epcot and finish just outside the main entrance.
- There is a giant after party for the runners at Epcot including many of the Food & Wine Festival kiosks, live entertainment and this year will include Epcot best attractions like: Soarin', Test Track, Mission Space, and Maelstrom.
Don't keeping waiting to make up you mind or you will miss out on the fun. If you have never run an endurance race at Disney World, you should strongly consider trying one. It is an experience that you will never forget!
