The most runderful time of the year just became merrier with an all-new event from runDisney, the runDisney Virtual 12Ks of Christmas. Whether you go dashing through the snow, running in a winter wonderland or have a holly jolly jog in a place of your choosing, gather your friends and family for a little holiday Disney magic this December, wherever you run!

The first-of-its-kind virtual event features three 4K running events and a challenge, all hosted by favorite Disney friends. It’s also a perfect way to stay motivated during the holiday season and keep you from sledding off your training plans for a future runDisney event. The only thing sweeter than a chorus of Christmas carolers will be the sound of you crossing the finish line. Plus, who doesn’t love a few extra presents during the holidays, especially when they’re for your hard-earned efforts!

While we’re not quite ready to unwrap all the event details, we invite you to jingle all the way to for more news to come this summer. Yule also want to save the date as registration opens on July 25, 2023. Excited for the runDisney Virtual 12Ks of Christmas? Share with us on social using #runDisney!

  • Please open it up to international fans!

  • Hi! I’m from Mexico. I’m a huge fan of Disney, it will be awesome if you open the registration to non US addresses. I don’t care if I need to pay an extra fee for shipping. Please, please, please! For many of us it’s just a dream to run in person due to the inflation rate and traveling costs, but it’ll be a real Christmas gift if you guys open your runs to Mexican runners too 🫶🏻

  • Would love for it to be open to Canadian runners!

  • I’m also a Canadian hoping to get to do virtual events again. Due to the rising cost of living there’s little chance I’ll get to an in person race anytime in the next few years and I really miss doing the RunDisney virtuals.

  • So exciting! Is that true? Canadians can’t signup for the virtual runs? I did in the past. Would be a great Christmas gift!

  • Interested in the Hoilday virtual 12k

  • Please reinstate non US addresses to participate! Canada and Canadian Run Disney fans miss you!

  • Sounds fun

  • Ooh, can’t wait to see what this is.
