The folks over at Run Disney finally posted the official photos of the brand new race medals for the Dopey Challenge. I am running this inaugural event in January. It’s four straight days of racing (5k, 10k, 13.1, 26.2), but you’ll notice there are six medals total. That’s cause you also get one for doing the Dopey, and doing the Goofy (13.1 & 26.2), which is included in the Dopey.
I’m glad they show us the medals ahead of time, gives us motivation! My first marathon was the Disney Marathon in 2008, and that was the 15th anniversary of the event. That year they kept the medal design a secret – you didn’t get to see the medal until you crossed the finish line. But like I said, I like knowing now because I’m an impatient American!
If you click on the picture, you can see an enlarged view. And if you see an enlarged view you’ll notice that there are two innagural etchings. One on the Dopey and one on the 10k, as it’s the first year for that race. Pretty cool.
Next up, I can’t wait to see the course maps. I really liked the marathon course last year, and I’m not sure if they’ll be changing it up, but knowing Disney, they like to go all out all the time. If they were using the same courses as last year, it’d probably still be on their website, but they ain’t on there. Come on Run Disney, give me those maps now! I’m an impatient American!
Haha, anywhoodle, those medals won’t come without doing the work. So I’m back at it today with a weight session at the gym-ola, then a hot social run tonight at the pub-ola.
What do y’all think of the new medal designs?
