2016 Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend, Part 2, Half Marathon and Post Race Party

Posted on
Sunday, November 6 – Half Marathon Saturday night was the time change – and we got to “fall back” an hour. That was very nice, since it meant that we got to sleep for an extra hour on what was already a short night! But it didn’t make it a whole lot easier to get … Continue reading "2016 Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend, Part 2, Half Marathon and Post Race Party"

The Walt Disney World Wine and Dine Half Marathon is a race we have enjoyed participating in for several years. It was very different from other race weekends because it was a night race, starting at 10:00. It included a big finish line party at Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival. All of the food booths … Continue reading "2016 Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend, Part 1, Expo and 10K"

2015 Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend

Posted on
The Wine and Dine Half Marathon is my favorite half marathon at Walt Disney World. It's the only nighttime half marathon. It starts at ESPN Wide World of Sports and ends at Epcot, where there's an after-party that goes until 4:00 a.m. The Food and Wine Festival booths are open as are some attractions, and there's also entertainment and character meet and greets. Party admission is included with race registration, though you still have to pay at the food booths. As we did last year, our plan was to run the race Saturday night, then take a four-night Disney cruise starting on Monday. Oh, and then return to California on Friday to run the Inaugural Infinity Gauntlet Challenge at Disneyland on Saturday and Sunday!

With his love of Disney and our proximity to Walt Disney World, my son naturally wanted his first races to be runDisney 5Ks. My family is far from unique in … Continue reading "Tips for registering for runDisney races"

2014 Wine and Dine Half Marathon

The Wine and Dine Half Marathon is almost my favorite Disney half marathon – second only to Tinker Bell. We first ran it in 2012, and had a wonderful experience. We decided to run it again this year – it was only after we signed up that I found out it was the 5th anniversary, … Continue reading "2014 Wine and Dine Half Marathon"
