Disney World Marathon 2012 Recap and Special Event Announcements

Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #257 for the week of January 15, 2012.

We’ll take a look back at this past weekend’s Walt Disney World Marathon series of events with a roundtable of participants from every level – from first-timers to seasoned veterans, as well as those who were there to help cheer the runners along. We’ll look not only at the races themselves, but what the weekend has become for Disney fans from around the world. From the social to the charitable, we discuss the difference that this weekend made in the lives of the runners, and those who they ran for. We’ll also talk about future events, including an announcement about how and why you can participate in the excitement of Marathon Weekend going forward.

I’ll also have another announcement about an upcoming WDW Radio special event, and how you can be a part of it – no matter where you are.

Stay tuned for some other announcements before I play more of your voicemails at the end of the show. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show

Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in next week!

    I have been on both sides of the rope and really prefer the running side. But the cheering side is so uplifting and as a runner, helpful.

    I look forward to more runDisney events with the WDW Radio Running Team!!!!

    “Yeah, I just yell at ’em.” LOL!!! That was a hilarious comment. What a wonderful thing Steve does – helping people finish the marathon. The story of Steve Moser giving his medal to a young boy. Unbelievable. So touching. Some day I hope to get down for the Marathon Week and help contribute, walk/run, cheer or whatever. I need to be a part of this. Sounds like a fantastic experience. And to see grown men in tutu’s, would be a bonus :0) All for a good cause…

    Thanks again for another fabulous show, Lou and guests!!!
