Disney Half Marathon

January 9, 2010 by USA Post 

Disney Half Marathon,LAKE BUENA VISTA — Light sleet and snow flurries in Central Florida didn’t stop thousands of runners braving the cold for the Disney Half-Marathon.

The race Saturday morning was the first of two during Walt Disney World’s Marathon Weekend. A full, 26.2-mile marathon is on for Sunday in even colder temperatures.

Participants started arriving in Central Florida earlier this week. Some runners from up north told News 13 they were disappointed the weather in Florida is chilly, but they’re used to it.

The Disney Marathon attracts more than 100,000 people every year, with nearly 24,000 people running in the full marathon alone.

Experts said dressing in layers is key. As runners got hot, they started taking off a layer at a time. All disregarded clothes along the course will be donated to charity.
