Upcoming runDisney Calendar Released With Dates For 2020-2021


If you are currently a runDisney fan, or you have been wanting to try a runDisney event, they have released a calendar with the event dates for 2020 and some into 2021. It also lists the dates races go on-sale.

Disney offers four weekend events each year, with one full-marathon at the beginning of the year and the remaining events featuring half-marathons.

Here are the races:

Walt Disney World Marathon Weekends offer a full marathon as well as the half-marathon, 10, 5k, kids runs and various challenges. This one takes place in January.

Princess Half-Marathon Weekends, usually take place in February, and offer the Half-marathon, 10k, 5k, kids runs and challenges.

Star Wars Rival Run Weekends are in April and offer the Half-marathon, 10k, 5k, kids runs, and challenges.

The Disney Wine and Dine usually happens in November and offers a Half-Marathon, 10k, 5k, kids runs and challenges.

They also list runs that are in Disneyland Paris including the Princess Run and Run Weekend. You can also combine some of these running events with a Disney Cruise to participate in their Castaway Cay 5K as well.

Besides events offered at Walt Disney World or Disneyland Paris, runDisney also offers virtual running events twice a year.

One is in conjunction with Star Wars called the Star Wars Virtual Half-Marathon. It has a window from January-March and they always offer a Virtual Series in the summer. These are great because you can do them from home. I have done both and I love them!

I really like doing these and my kids love it too. The 5k is open to families and it isn’t timed so it’s just a lot of fun.

Whether you are a long-time runner or someone who would only run if a bear chased you there’s something for everyone at the runDisney events.  But I would make sure your doctor says you can participate.

Visit runDisney to learn more and to purchase your race.
