2009 Tower of Terror 13k

The Tower of Terror 13k is an annual foot race at Disney's Hollywood Studios where runners compete in a run around the Hollywood Studios theme park, with a Tower of Terror inspired theme.  Unlike other races at Walt Disney World, the Tower of Terror 13k is a night race and takes place after Hollywood Studios closes for the day.  In addition to the race, there is also an after-party where runners and their family and friends can ride many of the most popular attractions at the park.
