“We invite you if you dare to join us…for a running event that lies beyond the fifth dimension, beyond the deepest darkest corner of the imagination.”

On October 27, 2007, to celebrate the 13th anniversary of the Tower of Terror attraction, Walt Disney World hosted a 13K and a 6.5K race. The race was announced in April, with a background story to match the attraction’s Twilight Zone theme. The story is that a young movie actress named Shirley Malone and her husband checked into the Hollywood Tower Hotel in 1994, laced up their shoes to go on a 13K run, and disappeared. The race began at 9 p.m., with a post-race party being held from 9 to 1 a.m. The race began and ended at the Tower of Terror attraction, with guests running around Hollywood Studios and the Wide World of Sports Complex. Medals were available for those who completed the course, as well as glow-in-the-dark race shirts.
