Haven't look a full offerings yet, but I know W&D had a plaque set you could buy that did include a duplicate medal "while supplies last".

I thought I saw the same for marathon packages but really only scrolled through quickly.

Anyone think they will start offically recognizing Dopey and give it a medal?

Since the 5K is not a chipped race with official results, I believe chances are slim to none. DW embroidered a Dopey medallion for me that CMs, volunteers, guests and even Jeff Galloway liked.

My friend gave me a Dopey pin and I just put it on my Goofy medal. I put it near the bottom of the lanyard so it can be seen directly above the medal. So there's another option!

Yeah, I really don't see them wanting to take away the "fun run" aspect of the 5K...especially so many young children run it. This was my first year doing it and I thought it was a GREAT race for new runners. Plus I'm sure if a new Dopey medal was offered TONS of people would sign up for it and it would fill super quickly, or they would possibly expand capacity...and I'm not sure the race can handle that.

So, I did all 3 races...in a nutshell:

5K: Fun race and great characters...unfortunately all of the lines were HUGE, so I only stopped for one picture. Love that early-morning run through Epcot though, and the finisher medallion (the thing that got me to sign up in the first place) is adorable.

Half: This was my first time running the WDW Half...I ran the same course for the Princess Half in 2011 and man, is the WDW Half CROWDED. It makes sense: 14,000ish runners in the 2011 Princess Half vs. 25,000ish this past weekend. Traffic completely stopped on Main Street, coming out of the castle, and leaving Magic Kingdom. Runner etiquette was very poor here too...but despite that it was still a great race. Awesome characters and finished early enough that the heat wasn't a huge problem. Love coming into the TTC and Magic Kingdom and seeing all of the great spectators!

Full: The character set for the first 8 miles was almost the same as the half, which I kind of expected, but it was still a bit disappointing. The speedway didn't do much for me, and WWoS was neat, but I agree with others that it seemed like it went on FOREVER. I think the Mile 20 surprise would have been a lot cooler if they hadn't hyped it up so much - if they just kept it as something no one knew about I think it would have been so much better. It definitely was cool to see, but it never could have lived up to what they were billing it as. I think I still like last year's course better, but I DEFINITELY appreciated that some of the back roads (especially mile 20/21 from last year) were more broken up.

Overall it was a great weekend, as usual. Disney does a great job with the races, and the volunteers were AMAZING. They really did a wonderful job.

Trip report is here, if anyone is interested...LOTS of character photos.

I was there. Bib 417. I was gushing sweat by mile 5. Not a good result (4:01), but still had tons of fun. See you all next year!

I meant to tell you, I almost forgot to buy my Dopey pin, even after your reminder! Lol I ended up buying it at the airport Disney store. I was so glad they had one. It's silly, but I wanted to buy it ON the trip.

Still don't have any finish line photos yet either for myself. So far, I'm not impressed by the new company.
When I logged into marathonfoto.com, they had three tabs of photos -- 5K, Half, and Full. I have all the photos. And you have a Goofy purchase option that gets you all your Full and Half photos as a set which is way cheaper. You have to order your 5K set separately.

Note that to see your finish videos, you have to click on the PRODUCT CATEGORIES button at the top and then next to the " Download with Video" options, there is a link for previewing your videos. If you want get the videos, you will have to purchase one of the options that says "with Video"

ASI purchased both Brightroom and MarathonFoto so they are one big company now. But they offer services under their individual names.

I haven't seen anything public about it, but did hear about it. But I heard it was only one person who died and seven who had heart attacks on course. Disney has a way of keeping that kind of stuff on the down-low since it happens on property and they have better "containment" as a result.

If anything, it might come out in the Orlando Sentinel paper eventually.

If it is true, it is a sad thing indeed and I pray for the runners and their families.

Love the medal. Love it around my neck!!
Hi Nancy! So glad you made it through! I was thinking of you on the course. Glad your knee held up for you! You are hardcore, toe nails are totally over rated!

If you want a separate room for Princess, let me know. I'll be staying by myself. Would love to have a fellow runner in the room to make sure I get up. I have a studio at BWV booked. Let me know if you want to crash.
