In just two days, the Healthy Disney Guide crew will be on a southbound plane, heading for the Inaugural Tower of Terror 10 Mile Race. Here’s quick look at the course maps for the event.
Buses will drop runners off in the parking lot at Disney’s Hollywood Studios starting at 7 PM. We expect the usual DJ, dancing, and photo ops. An interested addition to this race is the Disney Food Trucks – how many runners will chow down before starting the race? There will be four corrals and runners will walk out to the start line from the corrals.
Here’s the full course map. Runners will have lots of time on the Osceola Parkway and go up to the Animal Kingdom parking gate but will not enter the park. We’re expecting DJ’s, stilt walkers, characters, & possibly parade floats on the Osceola Parkway, much like during the Wine & Dine Half Marathon.
Shortly after mile 5, we’ll head off-road for a bit, then wind around the Wide World of Sports. Running on the track should be nice & cushy, but there will be quite a bit of narrow sidewalk in this portion. We’ll be running around the baseball stadium, then leaving the Wide World of Sports, going back to the Osceola Parkway, and back into Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Here’s the final mile & a half of the race. Runners will be on stage for part of the final push, then backstage to come around the outside of Rock N Roller Coaster and finish in the shadows of the Tower of Terror.
Here’s the path runners will take from the finish line and around to meet up with family members. It looks like quite a hike out the Fantasmic! entrance to get back into the park.
Having run the Wine & Dine Half Marathon on this weekend for the past two years, we’re excited to see how this new, shorter race goes. The Villians Hollywood Bash goes on until 4 AM, so we’re hoping to finish as fast as possible and get the party started!
