RunDinsey offers a wonderful race experience throughout the year for Disney fans to be abe to run throughout “The Most Magical Place on Earth” before Disney Parks have even opened for the day. 

I was able to participate in the last runDisney event before the Disney Park shutdowns for COVID-19. Read my experience in completing the Princess half marathon HERE. Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic that was the last runDisney event for this year. The Star Wars Rival Run Weekend was to be held April 15-18, 2020 and this event was cancelled.

rundisney has already canceled wine and dine race weekend, marathon weekend, and princess 1/2 marathon weekend.

As the Dog Days of summer approached, runDisney announced that the Wine and Dine Race weekend would changed be changed to a virtual event so runners could still earn their villainous medals. Read all about this HERE.
