Disney has announced that this is the last year for both races. The text of their email follows:
“October 2009 is your last chance to run Disney’s Race for the Taste 10K & 3K andThe Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ 13K and 5K! These races will not be returning in 2010.
That means it’s the last chance to earn medals for these events before they head into the Disney Race medal vault!
Run both the 10K and 13K, and you will also be awarded the Fall Race Challenge medal!Experience the taste and terror of Disney’s Endurance Series this fall and take home limited edition finisher medals and lasting memories!
Specially priced hotel rooms and theme park tickets are available for race participants, but you must book by September 10 to receive the special race rates. Visit Travel Details atdisneyraceforthetaste.com andtowerofterror13K.com for more information.
This fall, look for an upcoming announcement on future Disney races!”
NO!!!!!! I was seriously looking forward to the ToT 13k for next year! Can't afford it this year. 😦
no reason to why they are eliminating it? I would have really liked to have done the TOT 13K but I cannot do it this year! That stinks!
I also ran the National Kidney Foundation 5K which ran through Epcot in March 2008 and think that was by FAR my favorite 5K I have ever ran. They seem to have dropped that race as well.
What's up with Disney dropping races?
Yeah – I was really bummed when Danskin said they had to cancel the Triathlon in Disneyland this year… first they postponed it and then said they were canceling, but at least I understand that one. No place to swim! But why drop after hours races that don't really cost them much to do?
Well I did the first TOT 13k as my first long race. My kids did this one,and our friends from the UK did it too. Last year did the taste. I wonder what's next.
