Running events will resume at Walt Disney World in November, more than a year after the coronavirus epidemic began.

After more than a year of virtual racing, the theme park resort unveiled its four race weekends for the 2021-2022 season on Wednesday.

  • Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend powered by AfterShokz is scheduled for November 4-7
  • Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend is scheduled for January 5-9
  • Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend is scheduled for February 24-27
  • runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend presented by Otterbox is scheduled for March 31-April 3.

The resumption of running is just the latest evidence that Orlando’s theme parks are returning to normalcy, with masks no longer necessary in most parts of Disney World for fully vaccinated visitors.

According to a news release, any modifications to coronavirus standards may mean that the racing weekends may not include every aspect from prior years. All of the races will also have virtual run alternatives, and all competitors will get the same finisher medal.

With a “Wickedly Delicious” theme, the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend will honor Disney villains. It will feature a post-race party at Epcot, as well as admission to the theme park after hours and the International Food & Wine Festival.

The runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend will take place on the fourth weekend of each race season, and will feature “new and developing event themes and lengths each year,” according to the press release.
