What Is The runDisney Wine and Dine Race Weekend?

Many have called it the ultimate runner’s night out race weekend!

Once upon a Disney, the Wine and Dine half marathon was held at night, with an after-party in Epcot immediately after.

A few years back, the race transitioned to a 3-race weekend (5K, 10K, and half marathon) which changed the schedule a bit.

Now the races are held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday on the first weekend in November.

Don’t worry: the after-party is still a thing!
