We’ve seen a slew of announcements recently about restaurant reopenings, ride pre-shows returning, live performances returning, and more. And today, Disney shared that in-person runDisney events are returning to Disney World.
So, with the big announcement, we wanted to explore which events are returning for 2021 and 2022!
Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend
It all starts with the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend on November 4th through 7th, 2021. And this year’s theme is Wickedly Delicious — it’s all about the villains! General registration will open on July 13, 2021.
Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend
Next up is Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend, which runs from January 5th through 9th, 2022. This one is all about celebrating Disney World’s 50th anniversary. Registration for this event begins July 20th, 2021 for Club runDisney Gold & Platinum Members, with general registration opening up on July 27th. Those who wish to participate in the virtual component can sign up on July 30th.
Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend
Then there’s the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend, which is February 24th through February 27th, 2022. Registration opens up on August 17th, 2021 for Club runDisney Gold & Platinum members, August 24th for general participants, and August 27th for virtual participants.
Springtime Surprise Weekend
Finally, the Springtime Surprise Weekend is March 31st through April 3rd, 2022. Disney promises a “completely different experience” every year for this one. Registration details about this event are coming soon, but it sounds exciting!
Although Disney has said they can’t bring back every element from previous races due to current health and safety guidelines, as those guidelines change, the company does promise to keep runners in the loop on the runDisney website. And we’ll do our best to keep you updated, too! Happy running!
