Countdown to 2012 WDW Marathon Weekend #24

#24 - New Race Commemorative Items

Yes, they cost a lot of money.  No, I probably don't need any more of these fun little things.  Yes, I most certainly will be buying some new fun items!

What kind of merchandise can you expect to find?

There will most likely be a good variety of shirts to choose from in both men's and women's styles.  The shirts are normally Champion brand and most will have the runDisney logo on them as well as the Champion C.  There will be short and long sleeve styles.

For the Half Marathon, Full Marathon and Goofy Challenge there are usually finishers t-shirts.  Many of these say I Did It! or something to that effect.  I have to admit that at my very first race I refused to buy one of these shirts at the expo because I didn't want to jinx myself.  Now that I have quite a few races under my belt I will more than likely pick up one of these beauties.

There will also be a variety of tech shirts.  Some will have training for 2013 races, others just runDisney and may come in a variety of colors.

There may also be Bondi Band headbands, jackets and shorts available with different logos, etc...

There are a couple of ways to get commemorative pins.  You can purchase pins when you register for the races and many times they have a few of these pins available at the expo.  There may be additional pin styles and limited addition pins available at the expo.

There should be pins available for the 5K, Half Marathon, Full Marathon and Goofy's Challenge.

At the Disneyland Half Marathon expo they required people to wear a wrist band for the specific pin style they wanted and were limited to two of that style only.  If they are doing this, make sure you get all the wristbands you need.

Key chains
There are often key chains available for the Half Marathon and the Full Marathon.  These can be found at the expo.

If you like the vinylmations you're in luck, there is usually one for the Half Marathon and one for the Full marathon in the smaller size and then one for the Goofy Challenge in the larger size.  These tend to go pretty quickly so if you see them and want them, buy them, don't wait.

This is another item that required a wristband at the Disneyland Expo.  Just be aware that they may require this and get the wristband if you want one.

Often you will see wineglasses and water bottles at the expo.

There may be a small selection of bumper stickers with runDisney, 13.1 and 26.2 on them.

This is just a sampling of some of the items I usually like to look at and, yeah, probably buy at the official runDisney merchandise area.

Of course, there are a ton of vendors that have other things that may have some race tie in that you'll probably want to browse at the expo as well.

Happy shopping!
