The Unofficial runDisney Hercules Challenge
As a runner I know how tough it is to do back to back challenges. Last year we completed the Disney Dumbo Double Dare out at Disneyland and after two days of running followed by 5 days in the parks, I tell you I probably would have been better off running a marathon.
During this last month there were several individuals who not only did the Dopey Challenge, a 5k on Thursday, a 10k on Friday, a 1/2 marathon on Saturday and a full marathon on Sunday at Disney World, but then they flew out to California to compete in the Tinkerbell half marathon weekend, a 5k, a 10k and a half marathon back to back. Earning a total of 11 metals, including the challenge and Coast to Coast medal, they ran a total of 71 miles, in 7 races, through 6 parks over 11 days.
