EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival Wine and Dine Half-Marathon Weekend

runDisney races tend to book quickly — sometimes within minutes — so be ready to book your bib! Events over the weekend include the Half-Marathon, a 5K, a 10K, and a Challenge (10K + Half-Marathon in just two days!).
A Post-Race Party will kick off at 10PM on November 7. Registration has not yet been announced for this party.
runDisney Kids Adventures will be introduced in 2021. These will replace the kids’ running events previously offered by runDisney. Also note: there are virtual races this year as well, so if you can’t be at Walt Disney World, you’re still able to get in a magical run.
