Four races in four days await runners in Florida.

Feeling Dopey?

With Walt Disney World’s addition of a fourth race to its Marathon weekend in January, runners who complete every event will have completed the Dopey Challenge.

Organizers announced the addition of a 10K, so now there are four races in four days: 5K on Thursday, 10K on Friday, half-marathon on Saturday and a marathon on Sunday.

The Goofy Challenge, which is running the half- and the full marathons, still exists. Anyone who finishes all four races would receive six medals — one for each race, along with both challenges.

The 2014 event is slated for Jan. 9-12, with registration opening April 9.
