Disney Parks Blog has announced a couple of changes to runDisney races, starting with the upcoming Disneyland Half Marathon weekend in September. Event Guides have been printed out and given to runners at every event check-in. Now Event Guides will be digital, and available for download via mobile devices or computer on rundisney.com. It will enable up to the minute information with events.
The bigger change comes in the medals for the 5k races. Starting with the Disneyland 5k these medals given to 5k completers will be “metal.” The medals for 5k races were of dense plastic previously, and were almost like colorful pictures. Having a “metal” 5k medal will have them match more with medals handed out at 10k, half marathon, and marathon races.
