Bad news for all you Disney runners, all races scheduled for Saturday have been cancelled…
2019 runDisney event registration has been delayed for January’s Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. The registration was supposed to begin next week but runDisney has posted an delaying the registration of the event until at least June 1st.
“UPDATE REGARDING REGISTRATION DATES: We are working to create a more streamlined race registration experience for runDisney participants. As a result, registration for the 2018-19 Walt Disney World race event weekends will be temporarily delayed; however, all races are still scheduled for this season as planned. Registration for this summer’s Virtual Running Shorts Series and the June 5K will open on Thursday, April 12, 2018 at noon ET. We apologize for the delay and will have more information to share on June 1 regarding registration for all remaining races.” -runDisney
Here is the tweet they sent out from the runDisney Twitter account:

The situation is still up in the air for other runDisney events however. It doesn’t seem like this delay so far will affect November’s Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend and you can still register for the event. But the registration for the Princess Half Marathon Weekend in February, could still be delayed as it is supposed to start on June 12th. We’ll keep you updated on the situation.
I want to know what you think about the 2019 runDisney event registration being delayed.
- Does this change affect you?
- Have you ever participated in a runDisney event before?
