runDisney has released the 2015-16 race calendar and there are some things noticeably missing.
The most glaring hole in the schedule is the removal of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler Weekend. Most likely the reason for this is that Disney’s Hollywood Studios seems to be in the beginning stages of a major renovation. The Backlot Studio Tour recently closed and it is rumored that others are soon to follow. This time next year, the Studios could be under major construction which will not work for a race through the park or an after party. This makes me wonder if the Wine & Dine Half Marathon course will change for 2015.
While this is the reason that logically makes the most sense, it makes me wonder if runDisney is taking a break from racing in WDW that weekend because they are going to host the first Disneyland Paris Half Marathon. Remember these pins? They say September 2015…the mystery continues…
The other hole in the schedule that might not be as noticeable is the absence of the Expedition Everest Challenge for 2016. This is the one WDW race weekend I haven’t participated in yet, so obviously it is now a priority for me. I want to experience this event before it gets eliminated, so May 2015…I’m coming for ya!
What races are a priority for you in 2015-16?
