With that being said, since we knew we were going to pass on Princess, we planned on this being the year to do the Wine n Dine half marathon.
I am sure this year is going to be a unique one for Wine n Dine. I have a few questions and thoughts on the whole topic.
First off, there will no longer be the Osborne lights to run through.
I am curious to see what the route will be and if there will be a new "spectacle" for runners to run through or by. With the new light show in Animal Kingdom perhaps that might be all lit up.
As the runDisney community already knows, registration has been pushed back a few weeks. This has lead to rumors of a possible "challenge race".
This hasn't been confirmed but it makes sense to do a challenge. With the loss of the Osborne lights (which was the highlight of the race), Disney needs to do something new to bring the runners back. And if Disney can make more money at it, then why not!
This of course brings up even more questions.
Where will they fit in the 10K?
This more than likely means that the Jingle Jungle 5K will be moved from its usually Saturday morning time slot.
I've also heard that the expo is opening a day early, so does that mean the 5K will be on Thursday? The 10K on Friday? Will the 10K be in the morning or will they make it at night?
Oh there are so many questions I have about this. I guess I will just wait to hear something official from Run Disney.
So I guess those are my thoughts for Thursday! What better day to get all this out.
What are your thoughts on this?
