‘It means the world’: Man wins second Walt Disney World Marathon

BAY LAKE, Fla. — We have a winner! Nick Hilton has won his second Walt Disney World Marathon.

Channel 9′s Christian Bruey spoke with Hilton just seconds after his big win.

“It means the world. Ever since I won that first one, I wanted to come back and do it again. This place means so much to me and my wife,” Hilton said.

Hilton finished the race in two hours and 22 minutes.

Hilton and thousands of other runners competed in the Walt Disney World Marathon, a 26.2 mile race that takes runners through all four theme parks.

The first woman to cross the finish line was Giovana Martins, a five-time winner of the Walt Disney World Marathon. Martins finished the race in two hours and 54 minutes.

Martins has won the gold medal for four straight years, and this is her fifth time in the last six years.

Brian Siemann is the Push Rum Wheelchair winner. He also won the half marathon Saturday.

Siemann will be competing in the 2020 Summer Paralympics in Tokyo.

Disney modified the race later in the day, making it slight shorter to get runners out of the dangerous heat sooner.

The Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend also features a 5k, 10k and half marathon race.
