‘Goofy Giveback’ Announced for 2015 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

If you were hoping to run the Walt Disney World Marathon or Half Marathon only to be disappointed that they had sold out, listen up.

Due to an overwhelming fan response after a recent episode of ABC's Extreme Weight Loss, runDisney announced the 'Goofy Giveback' giving runners a chance to participate in the 2015 Walt Disney World Marathon and Half Marathon.

During the Extreme Weight Loss episode, a father and daughter team participated in a reward challenge by running the half marathon during the 2014 Walt Disney World Marathon weekend.

After the episode aired many fans wondered how they could participate in the 2015 races, which had sold out.

The Goofy Giveback is a 39-day window where runner can register for the marathon, half marathon, or Goofy's Race and a Half Challenge. Registration is open until October 24 or until the races fill up.

For all the details, check out this video from runDisney:
