The 2016 runDisney Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend is SOLD OUT! But you can still find bibs with Save the Children for the Wine and Dine Half Marathon, Mickey’s Holiday 5k, NEW Disney Wine and Dine 10k, and the all-new Lumiere’s Two Course Challenge. Register here.
This week, runDisney sold out two more races: Wine and Dine Half Marathon and the Walt Disney World Half Marathon during Marathon Weekend. While the Wine and Dine Half Marathon took a couple of months to sell out, the Walt Disney World Half Marathon sold out in just 35 days!
Did you miss out on registration for either of these races? Bummed you didn’t get in to register in time?
Well, head on over to the runDisney website and click on the race you want to participate in. Then, click the Registration Page. There, you can find information on Travel Operators and Run For a Cause. Tour Operators will require you book your Walt Disney World vacation through them to get your race registration.
Charity Groups will require you raise a certain level of funds in order to receive your registration. For example, Save the Children requires $1,250 to run the Wine and Dine Half marathon. You’ll even get a reduced registration. Raise even more and you’ll receive free theme park tickets! The bonus of running for a charity group is added team support. You’ll meet other runners raising money for the cause, and many charities offer Facebook groups and forums where you can discuss your fundraising and training efforts.
I’m very tempted to register with a charity for the Walt Disney World Marathon!
I did run with a charity for the Walt Disney World Marathon in 2014. Read all about my experience here.
So there you go! There’s still a way for you to participate in either of these magical race weekends. With the increasing popularity of runDisney races and the record sell outs, I think the Charity and Tour Operator entries will become more and more popular.
Have you entered a runDisney race through a Tour Company or Charity Group?
