    My BF & I are thinking of doing both the Disneyland & the Wine and Dine Half Marathons in 2015. How fast do those runs sellout? If I’m online when registration opens, will I have a problem getting spots? When does registration usually open for thes

    Aloha, Rachel! 

    I'm excited to hear you are planning your 2015 Coast-to-Coast runDisney adventure. Next year is going to be exciting for you! 

    The popularity of runDisney race events has grown by leaps and bounds over the past few years and races are selling out in record time. Follow these tips to help ensure you are able to gain entry into your desired races. 

    • First, sign-up for runDisney Email Notifications. This free service will keep you up-to-date on registration information and race details - then mark your calendar with these dates.

    • Be prepared to register as soon as each race goes on sale to the public. I also advise you and your BF register at the same time, but separately from different computers. Many runners have experienced a race selling out before they could get multiple people registered in time.

    • If you are an Annual Passholder or Disney Vacation Club® Member, be on the lookout for early registration opportunities.

    Another option, should the races sell-out before you have an opportunity to register, is to consider running for a charity while assisting them in their fundraising efforts - please let me know should you have an questions on the specifics of running for a charity. 

    While registration dates are always subject to change year to year, typically the Disneyland® Half Marathon Weekend goes on sale in January with the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend going on sale in February.

    I hope you find this information helpful, Rachel! Please reach out to me again if I can be of further assistance in helping you plan your 2015 runDisney race-cations.

    Just keep running!
