2011 Wine and Dine Half Marathon

Are you a foodie-runner? A jogger-chef? An athletic purveyor of fine spirits? Well, then the Wine and Dine Half Marathon is just the thing for you!

Registration is now open for the 2011 Wine and Dine Half Marathon, which takes place October 1, the first Saturday of the Epcot Food & Wine Festival. The kicker? It's a night race, starting at 10 p.m.!

The race starts at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and ends at Epcot's World Showcase. Registration cost is $145 (for early birds!), which includes a tech shirt, finisher medal, program, goody bag, bib, race timing, on-course refreshments, and our favorite part -- access to the exclusive after-party in Epcot's World Showcase, with one complimentary "sip" and one complimentary "taste." It seems that Disney is correcting many of the issues from last year's party, so we're hoping there are fewer folks fainting at the end of this race [grimace!]!

The Wine and Dine Half Marathon coincides with the kickoff of the Epcot Food & Wine Festival, to be held Sept. 30-Nov. 13. So be sure to stay an extra few days to eat, drink and be merry!

Disney Food Blog has the skinny on everything you can expect at the 2011 Epcot Food and Wine Festival.

Also, check out the official Disney running page for more info on the race and on registration for the other Wine and Dine weekend races.

So do you plan to train for the Wine and Dine Half Marathon? I love the idea of sweatin' it all out then replenishing yourself with good eats! Leave a comment below!
