    Hi Faith, When is the first day that you are able to register for any of the 5k races? I saw that they are booked for 2015 and would like to get a head start for 2016. Thank you!

    Greetings, Liz! 

    I am excited to hear you are interested in participating in a runDisney 5k event! This distance is really is a great introduction into the world of runDisney. 

    There are still opportunities for you to get in on the 5K action for 2015, as several races for the fall of next year have not yet gone on sale! Here is a list of races you could potentially participate in for next year:

    Walt Disney World® Resort
    • Happy Haunted 5K Trail Run- Typically held the first weekend of October, this festive fall themed race will have you experiencing different types of running terrain as you navigate your way around the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Look for registration to open in February.

    • Mickey's Jingle Jungle 5K- This holiday-inspired November race will have you getting wild in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and will open for registration at the end of February. 

    Disneyland® Resort
    • Disneyland® Family Fun Run 5K- The Happiest 5k on Earth takes place labor day weekend and opens for registration in January. 

    • Avengers Super Heros 5K- One of the newest 5K's to the runDisney line-up, this race will have you saving the world one mile at a time. Look for registration to open in March.

    I also suggest signing up for runDisney Email Notifications. This is a free service that will keep you up-to-date on registration dates and race details! Select the highlighted link above to get started. With races selling-out in record time, I wouldn't want you to miss out again. 

    I hope this helps, Liz! Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. As the runDisney Specialist on the Disney Parks Moms Panel, I am here to help. 

    Have a magical day,
