    We are hoping to travel to Disney World for the Marathon weekend. I have four kids who would like to run in the kids events. Does the Mickey Mile have a different medal than the other kids events? Can children run in the dashes and in the Mickey Mile?

    Hi Melissa!

    The kids races are so much fun-- for the kids AND the parents!

    I think it would be hard to do one of the dashes and the Mickey Mile.  The Mickey Mile generally starts in a different area, and goes on simultaneously with some of the dash events, but ends at the same finish line.

    The medals are slightly different for the Mickey Mile than the dash medals.  Keep in mind that parents are allowed to run with their kids in all of the events, including the Mickey Mile.  Some kids are too shy to go alone.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!
