Exciting Changes Coming to the 2020 Walt Disney World Marathon

Exciting changes are coming to the 2020 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend, presented by Cigna. One of the biggest changes for the marathon includes participants running through Blizzard Beach Water Park and spending more time running inside Epcot and less time on the roads outside the parks.

More than 100,000 runners and spectators are expected during the five-day event set for January 8-12, 2020. Start time for the 2020 Walt Disney World Marathon is 5:00 a.m., — 30 minutes earlier than previous years.

Also new to the event this year will be a pre-race and post-race outdoor area where runners can retrieve their gear, take photos, hydrate, stretch and recover from the race.

The 2020 Walt Disney World Marathon will also offer ChEAR Squad packages for spectators, which will provide exclusive access to the finish line, popular Magic Kingdom viewing locations and other amenities, but will not include access to the open-air runner experience.
