runDisney’s First Race: The Registration Sprint

When you decide to take the leap and join the runDisney community, you’re hoping to experience magical miles.

But first thing first: you have to register for the races you want to run.

And that can be a challenge.

Do runDisney races sell out?

Yes.

Do they sell out quickly?

They do, with some races selling out within minutes or hours of registration opening.

However, the specific time frame for sellouts can vary depending on a few factors such as the popularity of the race, the number of available spots, and the timing of the race.

Generally speaking, some of the more popular race weekends such as the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend and Princess Half Marathon Weekend tend to sell out within minutes or hours of registration opening.

It’s important to note that races have a tiered registration system, where early registration is open to the runDisney Club members first which can impact how quickly the race sells out to the general public.

Overall, it’s best to keep an eye on the runDisney race calendar for registration dates and times.

For example, Patty signed up for the 2011 Princess Half Marathon in September 2010 and decided to add the 5K about a week before the race when the shirt design was released.

Here’s a blog post about the fastest sell-out to date in 2014 for the Princess Half Marathon. Forgive the snarkiness- this blogger is older and wiser now (kinda).
