Coming up soon, the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend and Disney Princess Half Marathon events will bring plenty of guests, ready to race throughout the property. And, now ANOTHER runDisney event’s details have officially been announced!

The runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend has a pretty awesome “surprise” for guests as the event will combine previous events into a new experience! In honor of the 50th anniversary, the races that take place over four days from March 31st to April 3rd, 2022 will incorporate past themes that will make you feel nostalgic!


The 2022 Springtime Surprise Weekend will include:

  • Expedition Everest 5K (April 1st, 2022) – The race will once again feature a nighttime 5K combined with a scavenger hunt, but this time the hunt will be conducted during the 5K.
  • Race for the Taste 10K (April 2nd, 2022) – The event will mirror the 10K from the past, but now the race will celebrate the newest attraction at Walt Disney World Resort, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT.
  • The Tower of Terror 10-Miler (April 3rd, 2022) – The race will still be a 10-miler, but will be run in the morning instead of at night compared to previous years.

Guests can even run all three of the events, or 19.3 miles, as part of the Springtime Surprise Challenge that will include a special medal for participants! Registration for the weekend opens on December 7th for Club runDisney Gold & Platinum Members, December 9th for general guests, and December 14th for virtual registration at 10 AM EST.

  1. Hi! Do we have any ideas about when the runDisney Wine and Dine will be for 2022 or when that announcement might be? My fiance and I are trying to plan our WDW honeymoon and are nervous booking for a possible race weekend. Appreciate your help 🙂

  2. Is anybody else floored by the cost of the Springtime Challenge?! I’m so disappointed by the price, as the stress isn’t in the miles, but in the cost. Ugh…
