Disneyland Resort Places runDisney Race Weekends on Hiatus Beginning in 2018


Today on the runDisney blog it was announced that all runDisney race weekends at Disneyland Resort will be placed on hiatus beginning in 2018. This includes the associated Coast to Coast Race Challenges.

The blog noted, “Given the level of construction to support the ongoing Disneyland Resort expansion, we have been working hard to determine how we can continue providing our West Coast participants with the best possible runDisney experience, which is designed around the ability to run throughout our resorts while enjoying entertainment offerings and characters. After careful consideration and weighing all possibilities, we have made the very difficult decision to place all runDisney race weekends at Disneyland Resort on hiatus beginning in 2018.”

According to the blog, anyone who has registered for one of the 2018 races will be contacted directly by runDisney today by email. They will receive a full refund for registration fees and for any commemorative items they may have purchased.

The upcoming Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend at Disneyland Resort November 9-12 will go on as planned. In addition, a full schedule of races at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Paris are currently still being offered, in addition to a virtual race series. Guests with questions can contact [email protected].

  1. Wow, really disappointed. Was ready to run last year in the Star Wars light side, but then was diagnosed with breast cancer. This years Star Wars light side run was to be a celebration run for me to put a terrible year behind me.
