runDisney Know Before you Go! 

While runDisney has released these dates, themes, and details, know that due to the unpredictable nature of the pandemic, they have also shared a disclosure, below. 

We may not be quite ready to bring back every element of a runDisney race weekend as COVID-19 guidelines may change before our return to in-person running. Please visit our runDisney Return to In-Person Running page for the latest information.

While across businesses and communities COVID-19 guidelines are trending in a direction that could allow for a more familiar runDisney race experience, during the race weekend we may implement health and safety measures, such as face coverings, physical distancing and other requirements, if they are deemed appropriate.

runDisney Registration Tips

If you’re hoping to snag a spot in any of these runDisney in-person marathons, be prepared for a virtual queue. Plan to have both your phone and computer or other devices available for registration. And if you’re trying to register for other people you’ll want a designated device for each person if possible. runDisney events tend to sell out fast so be prepared with your credit card already attached to your Disney account and your correct address on your account. This will save time during registration and will ensure you claim a spot. 

runDisney has just announced 2021 and 2022 in person dates for Walt Disney World marathons! Plus a brand new event in spring 2022. #polkadotpxies #rundisney #disney2022
