Whether you’re ready to experience the magic of your first runDisney event, or are gearing up for your fiftieth race, you can start planning now because runDisney just revealed the 2020-2021 race season schedule and on-sale dates.

With entertainment, beloved characters, and Disney magic at every mile, runDisney races are memorable experiences for runners of all ages and skill levels. They’re also the only opportunity for runners and Disney fans alike to run through the Walt Disney World Resort, with the Walt Disney World Marathon taking runners through all four theme parks!

Want the thrill of a runDisney event from home? Sign up for the Star Wars Virtual Half Marathon and runDisney Virtual Series, allowing you to run, jog, or walk through your neighborhood or on a treadmill to earn exclusive medals and a finisher certificate.

This year we’re also excited to announce a new international event, Disneyland Paris Princess Run, joining the Disneyland Paris Run Weekend as another magical runDisney event at Disneyland Paris. 

Check out the on-sale and race weekend dates for each runDisney event in 2020-2021 below. Be sure to mark your calendars and lace up your running shoes!

  • Why no more Anaheim Runs? 🙁

  • 4 years ago I promised my niece we’d run another Disney 1/2 marathon as her graduation present. Never in a million years did I think they’d stop having the races in Anaheim. Please don’t make me go back my word…bring back the Anaheim races!!!!!

  • I’m with Mya…let’s do superhero races. My kids would love the dashes for that one! And I would definitely travel to Cali for a race …. bring them back….bring them back!

  • I’ve missed the Disneyland runs… I keep hoping the will return. I made every single Tink run, from the first until the final…. Bring ’em back!!!

  • 100% support you having races at any location you choose. However, I have not run @ Disney since they left Anaheim. Would really like to see Anaheim and Disneyland Tokyo.

  • Two things would make this better, California Races and Rudy Novonty. But thank you for all the work that goes into these races.

  • I really really miss the Tinker Bell 1/2 weekend in Disneyland! 😪💚 I like almost every other poster here would love to see Disneyland races back on the calendar. At the very least, some indication as to when Disneyland races will be back (or not). I’m in Western Canada, and Disneyland races are just so much more affordable (travel wise). Please let us in the loop! We miss Disneyland races!

  • As 7 of the comments above pleaded, please bring back the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekends!

  • I would love to run a Disneyland race and also excited about the Paris Princess race 😁 If I am doing the princess one in February and then this one in May does that earn me a special princess castle to chateau medal??? Please 🙏

  • What is the Disneyland Paris Princess Run in May?! It’s not even on the RunDisney website under DLP (only the Sept. races are showing).

  • Would LOVE to see a night time Tower of Terror race again! It’s my all time favorite!

  • Would like to see our race (I say our because we as legacy runners supported this race over the years) come back to Anaheim. Show us your dedication as we showed ours by running it every year.
    Thank you.

  • Yes. Please bring back the California races.

  • Please bring back the Disneyland Half Marathon in Anaheim!

  • Please bring these back to Disneyland! We miss the superhero’s races!

  • Bring back the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend!

  • Really wish you runDisney would bring back the Anaheim races.

  • Bring back the Anaheim Races!!!
