UPDATE 2: The reasoning for canceling the 2015 Tower of Terror 10 Miler is because of the Backlot Tour expansion, as we originally reported. “We are working on other developments in some areas along the race route and as a result, the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler Weekend will not take place in 2015.”
UPDATE: runDisney has said that the 2015 Tower of Terror 10 Miler has been suspended. The choice to use “suspended” implies that it will be back after the Backlot Tour area refurbishment has been completed. The original article is below.
runDisney just posted the the 2015-16 race dates, and the 2015 Tower of Terror 10 Miler event is missing. The Tower of Terror 10 Miler is a 10 mile race that starts at Hollywood Studios and runs through the Animal Kingdom parking lot, ESPN Wide World of Sports complex, and back through Hollywood Studios, ending at the Tower of Terror.
One of the biggest reasons for the apparent cancellation of the event is the fact that the Backlot Tour area could be under construction this time next year. The end of the route currently runs through the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, Streets of America, and the Backlot Tour. It will be interesting to see if runDisney is forced to make an announcement before Hollywood Studios executives say anything about the future of the Backlot area.
