The Epcot Food & Wine Festival at Disney World is a lot of fun. runDisney puts on a fantastic race weekend during this time called the Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend.  There is a 5k, 10k, and half marathon. If you are feeling ambitious you can even signup for the Two Course Challenge, which is running the 10k and the half marathon. You get a bonus challenge medal for accomplishing this. epcot sign
