runDisney Registration Dates Announced for Virtual Series and Marathon Weekend


A couple of weeks ago we all logged onto our computers ready to register for Marathon Weekend 2021 and much to our dismay (if not to our surprise) that registration never opened.

Since then we’ve been tapped into runDisney’s system to see if and when registration dates for Marathon Weekend 2021 and this summer’s virtual runDisney race series would be released – and today we finally have them!!


Marathon Weekend will take place January 6-10, 2021 and general registration will begin on May 12, 2020 at 10 a.m. Eastern/7 a.m. Pacific. Early registration for DVC members and Annual Passholders will begin on May 7, 2020. Initial pricing will be as follows:

  • 5K – January 7, 2021 – $89
  • 10K – January 8, 2021 – $129
  • Half Marathon – January 9, 2021 – $188
  • Marathon – January 10, 2021 – $190
  • Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge – January 9-10, 2021 – $385
  • Dopey Challenge – January 7-10, 2021 – $590

runDisney Virtual Series

General Registration for the runDisney Virtual Series will open on April 16, 2020 at 10 a.m. Easter / 7 a.m. Pacific. Perhaps indicative of the current unpredictable state of things, all of the races can be run between April 16th and August 31, 2020, instead of the usual one-race-a-month approach. Each of the Mad Tea Party, Space Mountain, and Haunted Mansion virtual runs is $40 and the full series (which includes an additional challenge medal) is $145. 

I don’t know about you but these themes have me itching to get these virtual medals.

Princess and Star Wars Race Weekends

runDisney has also updated its registration dates for the rest of the 2020-2021 race season.

Do you plan to jump back into race season when all of this is over and it’s again safe to do so?? I know for me, even being able to register adds a little normalcy back into my life….
