It wasn’t that long ago that the runDisney Marathon Weekend took place and we are about a month away from the Princess 1/2 Marathon on February 24-27th, but we already have a look at the medals for the Springtime Surprise Weekend March 31-April 3.

With this year being part of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration, Disney has decided to go for the nostalgia for this event, instead of the ‘Star Wars’ theming.

Let’s take a look!

Expedition Everest 5K

Yeti… set… run! Get ready for a 3.1-mile nighttime run and scavenger hunt through Disney’s Animal Kingdom as part of the Expedition Everest 5K! Never get lost on your journeys with this event’s compass-inspired finisher medal, perfect for explorers of all types.


Race For the Taste 10K

Lace up those sneakers for a tasty 6.2-mile event around Walt Disney World Resort during the Race for the Taste 10K. See what we’ve cooked up for you on this “Ratatouille”-inspired course with a finisher medal perfect for runners and EPCOT fans alike.


The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ 10-Miler

We invite you, if you dare, to join us in an early morning dimension filled with 10 miles of not-so-terrifying terrain through the Walt Disney World Resort. Bringing back this unique race distance, your finisher medal features Goofy dropping in on the infamous Hollywood Tower Hotel.”


runDisney Springtime Surprise Challenge

Test your mettle and earn FOUR medals as part of the inaugural runDisney Springtime Surprise Challenge. Runners who make their way through all three of the weekend’s events, for a total of 19.3 miles, can look to earn a special “challenge” medal.


Of course if you can’t participate in person you can go virtual with the 2022 Virtual runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend.

Spots still remain for the in-person 10-miler and all virtual races still have availability as well.
