LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (Sept. 21, 2009) – A sold-out field for Disney’s Expedition Everest Challenge presented by Champion will be tested like never before by several new twists and turns Sept. 26 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. A series of Kids’ Races have been added to kick off the event, making it an experience the whole family can enjoy.
The first urban adventure race in Disney’s Endurance Series, Disney’s Expedition Everest Challenge is a nighttime competition that will test both the mental and physical stamina of participants.
