    Will the hours of The Chronos Club at Gran Destino Tower be adjusted on marathon weekend 2024? The races start before the club is normally open, will the hours be adjusted to accommodate runners?

    Hey there, Analicia! Welcome back to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with such a great question!

    Before you know it, you will hit the ground running on your magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. I can't imagine a better place to run all those magical miles than Walt Disney World Resort, and I'm so excited for you, Analicia! Of course, fueling up before a long run is key, so let's tie up your loose planning ends (and running shoes) so you can relax, focus on training and start your countdown to the fun (and run)!

    I just spoke with a super helpful Cast Member at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort who let me know that the Cast Members have not yet been informed of what the Chronos Club hours will be during the runDisney Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend 2024. He also did not yet know about what early-morning food options may be available to runners.

    But Hakuna Matata! It means "no worries." I recommend that you keep an eye on the Marathon's homepage on the runDisney website as the race weekend approaches for information on special events or hours for you. You can also contact runDisney at (407) 939-iRUN or (407) 939-4786 to inquire about special accommodations for runners.

    Analicia, be sure to check out the runDisney Blog article "Food for Fuel: What to Eat Before You Run." It's a great reminder not to steer too far from the food you've been eating during training (a mistake I made before a half marathon), and I think it's a great resource! Good luck and pixie dust!

    I hope this helps, Analicia, and I hope you have the best vacation, full of magical miles and even more memories! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have. You've got a friend in me!
