Mari-Mar Walton, founder and director of Travelling Fit, entered runDisney events both in Florida and California in January this year. She travelled with her family (Husband Michael, and children: Emma aged 10 and Henry aged 7) and returned home with 11 medals; here is how she did it…

She ran the Walt Disney World 5K in Florida on the Thursday (with her family); 10K on the Friday (with her daughter); Half Marathon on the Saturday and the Marathon on the Sunday.

Then over to California’s Disneyland a few days later where she ran the 5K (with her family) on the Friday; 10K on the Saturday (with her daughter) and the Half Marathon on the Sunday.

By completing all the above events she earned herself 7 medals per event but then came more:

  • Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge Medal (for running the Half Marathon and Marathon)
  • Dopey Challenge Medal (for running all 4 consecutive day events: 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Marathon)
  • Star Wars Rebel Challenge Medal (for running the 2 consecutive day events: 10K and Half Marathon)
  • Coast to Coast Race Challenge Medal (for running a minimum distance of the runDisney half marathon at Walt Disney World and the half marathon at the Star Wars Half Marathon, the weekend after)

This made up a total of 11 medals… now that is a lot of bling!!!

Come and join Travelling Fit next year in either Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland

Resort or both to earn your bling in the most magical and happiest places on earth.

The course in Walt Disney World takes you through all four Walt Disney World Theme Parks, starting at Epcot, continuing on to the Magic Kingdom Park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios before an exhilarating finish back at Epcot.

The Half Marathon course in Disneyland takes you through Disney California Adventure Park, Disneyland Park, and on the terrestrial streets of the surrounding areas where you will encounter Darth Vader, the Stormtroopers, R2D2, C3PO, BB8 and many more Star Wars icons.

Travelling Fit is the official Australian sales representative for both the Walt Disney World Marathon and the Star Wars Half Marathon – The Light Side and we are pleased to advise that we are now taking preliminary deposits which will GUARANTEE your entry for 2018, even if the event is otherwise sold out.
