2014 Tower of Terror 10-Miler Registration

Today at 12 PM EST, registration opens up for the 2014 Tower of Terror 10-Miler. This race weekend takes place on October 3-4, 2014.


My husband and I ran this race last year, and we both thought it was amazing! I won’t go into a ton of details in this post, but if you would like to read our recaps from 2013, here are the links:

Expo/Pre-Race Recap
Race & Disney Villain’s Hollywood Bash Recap
Robert’s Race Recap

The pre-race party, the race itself, and the Disney Villain’s Hollywood Bash are incredibly well organized and just plain fun! Note that Hollywood Studios is open until 4 AM for the after-party. Entry to the bash is included in the 10-miler race registration, and spectators can purchase a ticket for it separately. The medal is also very cool – it is a glow-in-the-dark miniature version of the Tower of Terror complete with a moving elevator!

Side Note: This is also a great time to visit Disney World because you can attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party as well as the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival!

QOTD: Will you be registering for any of the races during the Tower of Terror 10-Miler weekend?


  1. I wish! It's a really busy weekend for my clients to be out of town, so there's no way for me to play a trip around ToT ever. Boo. Hiss!

    1. Aw, man!! It is such a fun race - who knows, maybe someday you'll get to go!

  2. Ack...my sister really wants to do this, and since I'm sort of on a personal mission to run all of the runDisney races, I'm not gonna lie...I'm really, really thinking about it! I love your Buzz costume, BTW, too cute! I'm going to go re-read your recaps now...even though I know that's a bad idea 'cuz I'm sure I'm going to want to sign up immediately!

    1. You definitely should do it - so worth it! I loved the atmosphere surround this race, and I wish I would have done the 5K too. I am glad you like the costume, Buzz is an awesome character :)

  3. I wish I had a fairy god-sponsor. It sounds like so much fun and I love the medal!

    1. Haha you and me both, Courtney! If so, I would definitely run all the Disney races!

  4. I saw you in your Buzz outfit on the course last year. :) We are still undecided about this year - but I'm hoping we get to go.

    1. Did you really?! That is awesome! Man, I wish I had found your blog sooner - we could have met up at the race then! Will you be at Wine & Dine later this year?

  5. This is the race I could probably do because our vacation is around that time... I may talk to the hubs about this one.

    1. You definitely should :) It is such a fun race!

  6. I want to do ToT one of these years, but I don't think this year will be it.

    1. That's alright, there are plenty of future years to do this race :) Plus, you're getting the Pink C2C next weekend, aren't you?
