Many runners are aware of the Goofy challenge. It’s a challenge that Disney World puts on in January where you run a half marathon on Saturday and full marathon on Sunday. I’ve always wanted to do it, but travel in January (especially to Florida) never really worked out. When Disneyland announced the Dumbo Double Dare — 10k Saturday and half marathon Sunday — I was up for it. It is not as glamorous as the Goofy, or even the Dopey challenge (5k, 10k, half, full), but I’m excited to be a part of Disney weekend.
Since there are plenty of runners that run the series of races Disney puts on, I thought it would be perfect to arrange a meet up, or tweet up, with some friends. So that’s exactly what we did.
Where: The outer patio at Disney’s Grand California Hotel
When: Saturday, Aug. 31 at 1 p.m.
Why: because we are runners and/or bloggers and social media knuckleheads that love to run, socialize and take photos
What else: We’ll have some giveaways to hand out
Official Hashtag: #DumboTweetUp
Requirements: None. It’s free, you don’t even have to be running that weekend.
We look forward to meeting everyone. Don’t be shy. Just come up, say hi, take a photo, give a high-five (we still do that, right?) and tag away on social media. There are going to be so many phones out, it’s gonna be blogger/social media madness.
How excited are you about this?
Can we make instagram and twitter go crazy?
