Marathon Weekend 2023 at Walt Disney World is coming up fast! The event begins with the Expo opening on Wednesday, January 4th, and continues with races the following four days: 5K on Thursday; 10K on Friday; half marathon on Saturday, and the full marathon on Sunday! Hopefully your training is going well and you've already got your outfit figured out -- but if you don't, I've got some ideas for you, from my shop on Etsy. If you'll be buying from my shop or another independent artist on Etsy, be sure to check the delivery dates for your purchases before clicking BUY, as deadlines for many Etsy made-to-order items are approaching fast!
As you probably know, runDisney events have themes or mascots for each race and each challenge event.
The overarching theming for the 2023 race weekend has a definite 1990s vibe, with its colorful geometric pattern designs. The theming comes courtesy of the weekend marking the 30th anniversary of the full marathon.
Each race has its own mascots; here they are for Marathon Weekend 2023.
Pluto for the 5K
Chip N Dale for the 10K
Donald and Daisy for the Half Marathon
Mickey and Minnie for the Full Marathon
and then there's Goofy and Dopey!
