Jennifer - At this point there is no Tower of Terror 10-Miler on the schedule as it's own race. It's possible that it could be combine with Wine & Dine Weekend but the detailed weekend schedule for that has not been announced yet.

Combining those two races would be a huge mistake! The Tower of Terror race is so popular because of its distance. Not everyone wants to do a half or full marathon. If it is not put back on the schedule, I think runDisney will regret it.

I think TOT is off the schedule because of the impending DHS reconstruction projects. I think all Disney races will be rerouted because of this, but since TOT and the after party are so tied to The Studio, it can't be moved to another site. Better to have a mega blowout when construction is done than to cause lots of ill will due to overcrowding and a subpar after party for the construction period!

Great points Anthony! That would make a lot of sense.

I did the Expedition Everest Challenge for the first time last year, and it was a blast! I was worried they wouldn't have it next year until I saw your post. However, the RunDisney site still has last year's info. Are they for sure having it next year?
