Hey runner, race weekend is quickly approaching! Make sure you all plan accordingly to get to your races on time as one mode of transportation will not be available.
It is so much fun to visit the most Magical Place on Earth, but imagine running through it! runDisney gives runners of all abilities the opportunity to RUN through Walt Disney World! runDisney races offer a race experience like no other.

Race Day Transportation
For runners staying at a Monorail Resort, they must take bus transportation as there will be NO Monorail Transportation for the 10K or 10-Miler races that begin in EPCOT.
There will be no monorail transportation for the 10K or 10-Miler races
This is important to note as for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend and the Princess Half Marathon Weekend the Monorail was operating for runners to get to the start line. The Skyliner will also not be operating for runners to reach the start line on race day as this drops you at the International Gateway.
What do you think about the Monorail not operating for runners to reach the start? Do you think it was easier to use than the buses? Let us know on the Kenny the Pirate Facebook page. Don’t forget to join the KtP crew page too!
