Coast to Coast Challenge Update

Ever since the new special edition Coast to Coast Challenge pink medal was announced for the Princess Half Marathon and the Tinker Bell Half Marathon, questions have been circulating.  Can we now get 2 Coast to Coast medals?!?  It wasn’t clear.

Well now it is and YES, in 2014 you have the ability to earn 2 Coast to Coast medals (if your wallet allows).

Coast to Coast Medals

Here is the official info from the runDisney website:

Only in 2014, runners can earn each version of the Coast to Coast Race Challenge medal.  Each race can only count once towards a Coast to Coast Race Challenge medal; to earn both medals in 2014 four races – two on each coast – must be completed. 

So that means you MUST complete Disney’s Princess Half Marathon and the Tinker Bell Half Marathon, along with one of the following races in Walt Disney World:

  • Walt Disney World Marathon
  • Walt Disney World Half Marathon
  • Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge
  • Dopey Challenge
  • Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon

AND the Disneyland Half Marathon or the Dumbo Double Dare Challenge.  That’s a lot of money running!!!

While I would LOVE to have both of these medals, I don’t think it’s in the cards for me.  The Tinker Bell Half Marathon is too close to Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend and I’m already signed up for the 10K and Half Marathon.  Plus, it’s quite the investment to take a trip to California twice in one year for me and that’s just not in the cards.  But I can’t wait to see how many of YOU take on this challenge!  Will you be getting 2 Coast to Coast medals in 2014?    

runDisney Rings

In my weekly perusing of the Disney Store website (ok, maybe it’s more than weekly), I came across some new items in the runDisney store.  Check out these new runDisney rings made by Jostens!

Mickey Mouse runDisney Ring Available for Men & Women

Mickey Mouse & Walt Disney (Coast to Coast) runDisney Ring Available for Men & Women

Mickey Mouse & Walt Disney (Coast to Coast Challenge) runDisney Ring
Available for Men & Women

Right now these are the only 3 rings available, but it can be assumed (like the new vinylmation medals) that in the future there will be rings available for all races and that the Coast to Coast ring will feature other race logos.

Rings include engraving of up to 3 initials on the inside of the ring and the base metal comes in 4 different varieties: 10 kt. gold, White Lustrium (a durable non-precious white metal), Solaris Elite (a yellow non-plated metal), and Silver Elite (A precious metal alloy composed of 76% silver, 10% platinum, and 14% other metal).  Prices vary based on the metal you choose and are as follows:

Men’s Rings 

  • White Lustrium – $399
  • Silver Elite – $499
  • Solaris Elite – $899
  • 10 kt. Gold – $1,399

Women’s Rings

  • White Lustrium – $399
  • Silver Elite – $499
  • Solaris Elite – $699
  • 10 kt. Gold – $1,099

These are a bit pricey, but that is to be expected coming from Jostens.  Maybe that’s why I never bought a class ring…

What do you think of the runDisney rings?  Will you be getting one for your next race?
