Dopey Challenge by Numbers

I had a lot of time to think while running the Dopey Challenge…48.6 miles of time to be precise.  Here are some of the things I calculated and thought about while running:

7,000- Number of Dopey Challenge runners

48.6- Miles of the Dopey Challenge

$495- Price of registration for the Dopey Challenge

That breaks down to roughly $10.19 per mile 🙂

6- Number of medals

5,500- Approximate number of calories burned during Dopey Challenge.

4:00- Time you must be on the bus by before the races

15- Number of corrals during the full and half marathons

3- Number of hospital style bracelets you have to wear to get your Dopey Medal at the end

3.5- Hours of sleep I got each night.

Infinity- The memories, friends and feeling of accomplishment I will take away from this experience.

Congratulations all you Dopey Challenge runners!  A big congrats to everyone that ran any distance this weekend.  They are all AMAZING accomplishments!!!

      Lol, thank you. I actually spent some of the empty miles between Animal Kingdom and ESPN Wide World of Sports figuring it out in my head. That is marathon thoughts.

    Congrats on completing the Dopey Challenge! I’ve been following along with a hunch of runners on Instagram and it was so exciting just to see the pictures! I wondered how much the cost of the challenge was – whoa! Not to mention lodging, park tickets, and everything else! Oh we’ll, it looks like an amazing experience an it’s in my Disney Bucket list for sure!

    Congrats again!
