Based on the success of the 2017 Disney’s Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend Presented by MISFIT it will be interesting to see if they will use the same race “courses” and unique medal designs based on the travel theme. And visiting the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is always a plus!

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.
