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).
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
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?
