Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Relay
Not ready to run the whole 13.1 miles on your own? Share it with a friend in the Wine and Dine Half Marathon Relay! Runner 1 will take on the first 4.8 miles and your relay partner will finish the last 8.3 miles. Medals will be rewarded to both runners, and then it’s off to the after-hours party inside Epcot.

Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Finish Line Party
Cheer for your favorite runner, then hit the after-party at the finish line! This year’s party will be tougher to get into than last year’s, but tickets will be available. Details here.

Disney Family Fun Run 5K
The Disney Wine and Dine Family Fun Run 5K is for everyone — grownups and kids alike — including children in strollers! Race through Animal Kingdom park and don’t forget to get your photo taken with the characters along the way!

Disney Kids’ Races
Kids 8 and younger flock to these races. There’s even a race for crawlers! After the Disney Disney Wine and Dine Weekend Kids’ Races, kids are awarded medals and can enjoy after-race refreshments. These races are held at the ESPN Wild World of Sports Complex.
