Richards-Ross, who won four gold medals in the 400-meter and 4×400- meter relay at three Olympic Games from 2004 – 2012, remains one of track and field’s most decorated female athletes. Since her retirement in 2016, she has gone on to become a track and field TV analyst and reality television personality. She is currently starring in the hit reality show The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend will blend the music, stories, and culinary delights found during the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival and the Walt Disney World Resort 50th anniversary celebration.
