How To Register For the 2022 runDisney Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

First thing you should note: the runDisney community is a PASSIONATE one. 

And once there’s a chance to runDisney again, you know they will show up and show out. 

What does that mean for you? 

It means super-fast race sellouts and a chance you could miss out if you are not prepared. 

In the past, runDisney offered early registration for a couple of groups. It looks like only Club runDisney members will have access to early entry at this time.

Club runDisney Gold & Platinum Registration Opens July 20, 2021 at 10 AM EST.

General Registration for In-Person Races Opens July 27, 2021 at 10 AM EST.

General Registration for Virtual Races Opens July 30, 2021 at 10 AM EST.

Any word on what they did for people that we're registered when the race was cancelled last year? Does that guarantee them entry into this race? Or was everyone just refunded?

Folks were refunded or switched to the virtual option. They do not have entry guaranteed for this race.
