We are so excited about the newest “Run-derful” news from runDisney. Check out all of the new announcements below.
Magic in Every Mile
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. Fellow KtP writer, Heather, was able to compete in the 2020 Marathon Weekend event. Check out her experience HERE.
Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that was the last runDisney event for 2020. All other runDisney events have been held virtually. Recently runners began tightening their laces to complete the runDisney Virtual Series for 2021 featuring our favorite lion cub, Simba.

Hi, a previous article it mentioned there is a race for everybody all the way from diaper dash to marathon. Is there something for someone with disabilities which seriously prevents them from keeping up with other runners (or maybe even prevents them from finishing the course?) where they could still see characters and have the full experience, as much as possible?
Wheelchair competitors are welcomed to participate
I wonder if they will have to open up other resorts? Fingers crossed for POR!
