    When doe the registration open for the 2016 race event in Disney world?Thanks so much

    Greetings, Mareen! 

    runDisney offers several opportunities at Walt Disney World® Resort each year for you to get in on the action! Here are the dates for 2016 events that have been released so far, you can expect the dates of races that will happen late in 2016 to be released as 2015 progresses. 

    • Walt Disney World® Marathon Weekend presented by Cingna® - January 6-10th, 2016 - registration opens April 28th, 2015

    • Disney's Princess Half Marathon Weekend presented by the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals - February 18th-21st, 2016 - registration opens July 14th, 2015

    Other race opportunities for 2016

    • Disney's Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend - To be announced. Typically held the first weekend in November

    My biggest piece of advice when registering for a runDisney race event is to be prepared to register as soon as it opens to the public. The popularity of runDisney has grown exceptionally of the past few years, and registrations are selling out quicker than ever! 

    I also want recommend signing up for runDisney Email Notifications so you can stay up-to-date on registration information and race details. Just select the highlighted link to get started. 

    I hope this helps, Mareen! Please let me know if you should have any additional questions. I am here to help!
