Calling all runners!

Are you perchance going to Florida in september 2012?

Are you a keen(ish) runner?

Do you want to join a race with 100000 other like minded people?

And would you like to do this in Disney?

If you have answered yes to all 4 questions; then I can tell you, well, you can! This year could be the year you enter The Tower of Terror Race.

What is it?

Wel, it is a 10 K race round Walt Disney' s Hollywood studios park that takes you through Lights Motion, Action; past Mickeys hat and concludes at The Tower of Terror.

Once completed, it is party time! Disney are laying on some rocking music and there will be your favourite Disney characters in attendance. You can also ride the rides. Will you have the energy for all that? well I would not but I dare say you will find a second wind.

AND, there is more!

You can take the children with you and they can enter their own 5 K race. There is also a health orientated expo at E. S. P. N Wide World of Sports timed to coincide with this event.

And the best thing is, you all get to take home a specially made Disney medal; how cool is that.

The dates for this race is the evening of september 29th and you can start registering in february.

Now here is an idea; if you are not planning a Florida holiday this year, this race makes a jolly good excuse to go (of course, you will need to book your lovely villa through the Orlando Villas site first)

Disney are planning to expand these running races at all their parks so you need to keep an eye out for future events. Right now I can tell you that there is a shorter race planned for november to coincide with the ever popular food and wine festival. This is mooted to start on the 9th of november but check the Disney site to confirm this.

This is something the whole family may enjoy doing and a chance to take away a medal that is only owned by a few hundred people! And you can doze by your private pool the whole of the next day.

So pack your trainers and head for Hollywood Studios!
