The registration for the 2021 Walt Disney World Marathon was supposed to open on April 7, 2020, however, when April 7 came, the website indicated otherwise. When you visited the official runDisney website, you saw that runDisney quietly pushed back the registration for the upcoming 2021 runDisney Walt Disney World Marathon.
Well, now runDisney has updated its website and has announced that registration will open up to guests on May 12, 2020!
