    Hi, I am planning on doing the Dopey challenge at Disney World in 2020. I cannot find any information as far as location for the starting line for the events. Do all 4 events start at the same location or are they different.

    Hi James!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and congratulations on registering for the Dopey Challenge during Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend! You have a fellow Dopey runner here and I'm so excited for you to feel that sense of accomplishment crossing that fourth and final finish line!

    While I know it's exciting to start planning and I'm sure you are eager to see the courses, they haven't been released just yet! As the weekend approaches, usually a month or so in advance, runDisney will release the Digital Event Guide. Keep an eye out on their social media channels for alerts when it is ready! In the Digital Event Guide you'll see the start location for each as well as the course you'll take for each magical mile. While starting locations have changed over the years, all races will finish in the same location, in the parking lot just outside the gates of Epcot! If 2019 is an indication of 2020 courses, they will all start and end at opposite ends of this same parking lot, but runDisney likes to keep us on our toes, so we don't know what's in store just yet!

    I hope this helps in planning your runcation in 2020! Please come back and see us real soon.

My name is Lindsey and I'm a wife, mommy, engineer and self-proclaimed "Disnerd!" I've always loved Disney and the joy it brings to so many people. I've been to Disney more times than I can count, but I found an even greater passion for all things Disney after discovering runDisney events. There is no better motivation to train for a race than a trip to the most magical place on earth! Learn More About Lindsey
