2011 Walt Disney World Marathon Medal

2011 Walt Disney World Marathon Medal

The Walt Disney World Marathon held a voting contest to determine the what the design of the 2011 medal would be, and the winner is….well, Mickey Mouse of course.

The design is different than the massive Mickey face from the past several years.  The medal is impressive and continues Disney’s tradition of providing some of the best bling on the marathon circuit.

The 2011 Walt Disney World Marathon is on January 9, 2011 (event website).

What do you think of the design?
