It has been confirmed--runDisney IS adding a 10k to Marathon Weekend, and they are sanctioning an official Dopey race series.
Here is a screen cap with the details about the Dopey Challenge. Wow! Six medals, six race shirts and 48.6 miles through Disney World! What an incredible weekend!
For years, runDisney enthusiastic have called an unsanctioned event "Dopey". This used to be a 5k on Friday, the half on Saturday, and the full marathon on Sunday of the Disney Marathon weekend. runDisney has uped the anti a bit here by moving the 5k to Thursday morning and adding a 10k Friday morning. The sanctioned Dopey event will include the 5k, the 10k, the half marathon and the full marathon.
While I love a good challenge, I have to ask myself if this is going to far. If it safe for a person to run a race four day in a row? Especially with the heat wave of last year, is it dangerous for a person to run this many miles in so few days? Not to mention waking up at 3 am four days in a row!
Would I ever take this challenge? I honestly can not say no. Some day, after I am in much better shape than I am today-- then maybe....as I said, I love a good challenge.
Would you ever consider taking on the brand new Dopey Challenge?
A dream is a wish...
