Disney Sports has announced that Alison Sweeney from TV’s The Biggest Loser and Days of Our Lives will be taking part in the 20th Anniversary Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. Sweeney is an avid runner and has completed both half and full marathons. She is registered to run in the Walt Disney World Half Marathon, which will be her first runDisney event…very exciting!
“With all of the cool new elements that will be part of this special 20th anniversary Disney marathon weekend, this seemed like the race to run in 2013,’’ said Sweeney. “We’re going to make it a family trip so my husband and kids can share in this fun experience.’’
Other celebrities are expected to be announced in the coming weeks and I’m hoping more details about the new commemorative medal and the post-race party are to follow soon!
