LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - A 33-year-old aspiring Olympian set a Walt Disney World marathon weekend record, sweeping all four races in consecutive days.
Brittany Charboneau from Denver completed the 26.2-mile marathon on Sunday in 2 hours and 45 minutes, taking the top female runner spot. Vanilson Neves from São Paulo, Brazil was the overall winner of the marathon, crossing the finish line just two and a half hours into the race.
Charboneau also won the top spot in the female runner categories for the 5K, 10K and half-marathon races to complete the "Dopey Challenge," which is a combined 48.6 miles. For each race, she dressed as a favorite Disney character.
"Doing this at Disney is soul-filling," she told FOX 35. "I just had the best time, the best time on every single race. It was magical, honestly."
Charboneau said she suffered an injury while training for the Boston Marathon, so she wasn't trying to set any records.
"This was such a mental-win weekend for me. My goal was never to win all of these," she told the Orlando Sentinel. "My goal was to go out, wear costumes and have an amazing time."
Charboneau dressed as Elsa from "Frozen" for the 5K on Thursday, Bing Bong from "Inside Out" for the 10K on Friday, Joy from "Inside Out" for the half-marathon on Saturday and Cruella de Vil from the "101 Dalmatians" for Sunday's marathon.
It's the first time a runner has topped all four races in the Disney event's 29-year history, the Sentinel reported.
The marathon weekend races feature courses that wind through Disney’s four theme parks.
Charboneau, who is training for the 2024 Olympic trials, dubs herself "the funny runner."
"The reason I wanted to do this is to remind people you can have big goals, but you can have fun with it," she said.
The marathon is also something of a charity event for Disney.
As the runners go, they build up body heat and a lot of them end up taking off some of the clothes they're wearing as they continue the race.
Hats, T-shirts and sweatshirts get collected by Disney staff after the marathon and are donated to local charities.
