Friday Feast: Tower of Terror 10-Miler Post Race Snacks

Are you sick of hearing about the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler yet??  No?  Good!

After the finish line at runDisney races, runners enter an area full of food and drinks.  Generally there is water, Powerade, bananas galore and a box of snacks.  Each race seems to have something different.  We had hummus in the post-race snacks at the Princess Half Marathon.  Here’s what we got at the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler:

This was an interesting and more robust box than the Princess I thought.  Here we have:

  • Dried fruit & nut mix
  • Multi-Grain Crackers (love these!)
  • White cheddar cheese spread (??)
  • Snap Infusion tart candies
  • Cliff Bar
  • Almond Roca chocolate toffee
  • Wet-nap (nice addition!)

There were a lot of sweet options in this box!  Cliff Bars don’t sit well with me so I didn’t try this, but I can imagine that it was a sweet chocolate as most protein bars are.  Then there was the Almond Roca, which is chocolate toffee covered in almonds…this was super good!  I’m a big toffee fan, so a win for me.  I guess the Snap Infusion tart candies weren’t actually sweet, but they are a “supercandy” as stated on their website.  I don’t love tart candies, or any similar hard candy for that matter (strange I know!), so these didn’t do much for me.

The dried fruit & nut mix was the same brand from the Princess Half, which I didn’t love because I think the fruit is too sweet and the nuts too salty.  But again, I picked out the almonds and was happy with that.  Lastly, we have the crackers and cheese spread.  I LOVE the multi-grain crackers and always wish the bag was bigger, but I was skeptical of the cheese.  Unrefrigerated dairy products always skeeve me out a bit.  B was brave enough to try it and wasn’t a fan, calling it a “low quality Laughing Cow cheese.”  Hmmmm….

Cheese Spread

These boxes are great snacks, but after a long race I’m definitely looking for some more sustenance…like this:

The Real Post Race Goodness!

Yes, I know we will never get this after a race, so I greatly appreciate the food that is provided.  This is where the Disney difference comes in because snack boxes like this are not common in most local races.  So even though I might not love everything, good effort!

What did you think of the post race snacks?  What would you like to see in the boxes going forward?

  1. our box looks fairly similiar and we also had that chocolate/toffee candy.. which both my sister-in-law and I thought was yum-o! I’m a cheese lover so I ate the cheese and B was right.. definitely a poor man’s laughing cow. It’s funny.. I’ve never thought about how they can keep those things unrefrigerated… but now that you mention it, it is sorta weird/gross…. I’d probably still eat it though. LOL.

  2. We had pretty much the same stuff in the 5k box, I think the only difference was gummed instead of the tart candies. I loved those crackers, I’m seriously going to try to find them in the store, lol!

  3. […] It was hard not to fill up on all of this goodness!  That salami was delicious.  I’ve been trying to eat gluten free for the past few months, so of course I came equipped with my own crackers.  I’m loving these ones from Crunchmaster that I first found in a runDisney post-race snack box.

  4. […] One of the things I learned is that when you run the RunDisney races you get food boxes after the race. They’ve done a great job at making pretty much everything in the box gluten free. A lot is also dairy free too. I think it depends on the vendors who they work with that race season. To get a good look at the boxes, here’s an awesome review from the blog My Glass Sneakers and another great one from Running at Disney. […]
