runDisney News February 25 – March 3, 2018


Happy March, everyone! Runners have the rest of this month to complete their Star Wars Virtual Half Marathon, and we’re about a month and a half away from the 2018 Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side race weekend. Spring is all about STAR WARS! Otherwise, here are some other things to keep in mind as you plan your epic runDisney 2018-2019 race schedules:


What’s next: 2018 Wine & Dine Half Marathon Registration
Early Registration: TBD
General Registration: Tuesday, March 13, 12:00 p.m. EST


Early Registration Link for Disney Vacation Club (DVC) Members:

Early Registration Link for Annual Passholder (AP) Members:

As of today, Mon. 3/5, both sites only have links to the Dark Side half race weekend events.
I believe this will change in the next couple of days so hold tight and keep checking the sites!

As a reminder, here are the upcoming registration dates for the 2018-2019 race calendar. DVC and Annual Passholders typically receive early registration dates 1-2 weeks prior to these dates so if you are a member in either of these clubs, be sure to check the websites above for more details. And have those credit cards ready!

*Please note: if you really want to participate in a race and it is no longer available on runDisney, check your local travel agent as runDisney provides entries to them in an effort to boost their businesses. Bibs will have to come with a ticket and lodging package. You may also consider running the race on behalf of a charity. All charity runners are expected to fundraise. Check the charity listing on each race for more information.
