The 2022 runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend will feature:

Expedition Everest 5K

Yeti… set… run! Show you’re in “peak” performance as you take on this nighttime run and scavenger hunt! The 3.1-mile course is inspired by the Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park fan-favorite event.

April 1, 2022 – This race will feature a nighttime 5K combined with a scavenger hunt, but this time the hunt will be conducted during the 5K. The cost is $100 if you register before February 28, 2022.

Race for the Taste 10K

See what we’ve “cooked up” for you on this 6.2-mile “Ratatouille”-inspired course at the Walt Disney World Resort.

April 2, 2022 – Like the 10K race from the past, but now the race will celebrate the newest attraction at Walt Disney World Resort, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT. The cost is $135 per runner.
