There is nothing like the WDW Marathon. This will be my 11th time running it and it never gets old. Don’t get me wrong, running a marathon is hard, real hard and I have dark moments each year but seriously what is better than running 26.2 miles in my favorite place 🙂
I’m THRILLED to be back, after running 3 virtual marathons I’ve decided that running that far by myself is just not for me. Running marathons need to be at in-person events for this girl!
So first, let’s take a look at the start area. This year, runDisney is doing start groups instead of corrals (basically numbers instead of lettered corrals) but similar to the half marathon, there are fewer corrals of the same size as past years implying that there are likely less runners. In 2020 there were 8 corrals and now there are just 6 and it could just be that the map isn’t 100% accurate or it could be that they really did cut the number of runners to maybe 20k instead of the 25-26k. Consistent with past years though is the half mile-ish walk to the start groups so give yourself plenty of time for the slow stroll.
