Hi everyone! It’s hard to believe 2017 is winding down, but we have so much to look forward to this holiday season, at Disney Parks, and at home with friends and family. Wishing you all a joyous kickoff to the holiday season with Thanksgiving on Thursday! And if you have an upcoming trip to Disney, congratulations! It is sure to be even more magical. As for runDisney news, not much has happened in the past week, as we eagerly anticipate some medal reveals for Princess Half and Dark Side Half, but I think those will come soon!

As a reminder, all Disneyland races have been postponed indefinitely due to major construction projects. Let’s hope they come back once everything has settled.
Not signed up for a 2018 race but are eyeing something for 2019? Here is the 2019 runDisney race calendar and the important registration dates you need to familiarize yourself with!
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s recap on Monday. As always, #willrunfordisney !
*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.
