On your marks, get set, go!
If you love to race surrounded by the magic and fun of Disney Parks, then you’re in for a treat. Disney has revealed details for its brand-new runDisney event – Springtime Surprise Weekend.
Disney fans are gearing up for the return of in-person races this weekend with the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon at Walt Disney World Resort after the pandemic stopped crowded events from happening.
Disney has now released details for a brand-new runDisney weekend in 2022 which will feature multiple themed events, as well as nostalgia for Disney runners.
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.
The Tower of Terror 10-Miler
April 3, 2022 – The race will still be a 10-miler, but will be run in the morning instead of at night. Registration costs $190 before February 28, 2022.
Runners can also run the runDisney Springtime Surprise Challenge, costing $445, which includes all three events at a total of 19.3 total miles and a magical medal at the end.
