runDisney has confirmed their 2015/2016 event calendar and what is notable by its absence is the Tower of Terror 10 Miler. The Tower of Terror 10 miler has previously been held in early October.
This immensely popular 10 mile race at Disney’s Hollywood Studios has sold out every year that it’s been run, so its omission may very well point to something else taking place at the Studios preventing the race from being staged.
Do we wonder what that something else could be? With the recent closure of the Studio Backlot Tour, the possible expansion of Toy Story Mania, and the continual speculation of Star Wars land and a new Pixar area – all signs seem to point to a large redevelopment of Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The dropping of the Tower of Terror 10 Miler from the schedule appears to be the first official, yet indirect, confirmation that something is indeed going to be happening during the next couple of years.
If you are one of the more than 16,000 runners ‘dropping in’ to participate in The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler Weekend, October 3-4, at Walt Disney World Resort, then we have a little motivation to help you with your training.
From the youngest runners in the runDisney Kids Races to the most experienced runners in the Disney Happy Haunted 5K Trail Run at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and the 10-Miler, we often hear, “it’s all about the ‘bling’.” With that in mind, we are excited to share what waits for you at the finish lines of this year’s events.
There will be no tricks, just treats when kids receive the Halloween-inspired Donald Duck medallion for participating in the diaper dash, 100m, 200m 400m and 1-Mile races.
Be careful of hitchhiking ghosts if you are participating in the Disney Happy Haunted 5K Trail Run. New this year, the medallion glows in the dark!
And nothing can be more fitting than the 2014 The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler medal, featuring The Hollywood Tower Hotel. Not only does this medal glow in the dark, the elevator moves up and down.
