    New Disney race! Sounds interesting...

    THE COURSE: MYSTERIOUS Race through the dark, exotic terrain of Disney's Animal KingdomŽ Theme Park on a thrilling 5K trek in the shadows of the Forbidden Mountain.
    THE OBSTACLES: INTENSE The adrenaline is pumping and the anticipation builds as teams (trekkers) prepare for their expedition. Surprises along the way may pose as obstacles on the team's trek.
    THE SEARCH: LEGENDARY There are plenty of clues to lead them on their journey, but only a few will escape the Yeti, known as the abominable snowman! The team needs to earn all of the stamps in their Expedition Passport to conquer the challenge!
    THE REWARD: FUN Then the real excitement begins as the teams celebrate their finish at an exclusive after-hours party at Disney's Animal KingdomŽ Theme Park.
    If you have what it takes to conquer this challenge, then find a teammate and join the trek! The challenge and the party will be twice as much fun! If no one will brave the Yeti with you, then sign up for the solo trek!

    This sounds really cool to me...It seems expensive, but I might give it a try.

    I know...just being a 5K seems a little weird...there must be something to make it really challenging along the way

    I am so totally doing this!

    At first I thought it was too expensive. But, you get a shirt, a park admission AND an after hours private party! Plus, in addition to the race, it looks like there is an obstacle course and a treasure hunt.

    I will be at WDW from 9/25 to 10/5 anyway - booked the bounceback Free Dining promo.

    Anyone interested in joining me and making it a WDW Trivia Team (BTW - how many can be on a team?)

    I found the site and they don't give much on details.It sounds like an endurance challenge. We will wait and see.
