runDisney Events at Walt Disney World

What started as “just” a marathon has blossomed into a series of amazing events at Walt Disney World. There are runDisney events for people of all ages, and even for families to participate in together. Runners of all levels will find something to meet their interests including kids’ races, 5Ks, 10Ks, half-marathons, and a full marathon.  Events happen throughout the year, which makes finding one to meet your schedule easier.

Be warned — events are popular and will fill up. Make sure to watch the registration dates to ensure you don’t miss out on the fun! Also, Annual Passholders and DVC Members can often register a few days earlier than the general public.
