    Hi, I am from the UK and my husband is wanting to take part in the 2025 Disney Marathon. Do you have any advice as how best to do this? If it even is possible for a non-USA resident to compete? Thank you

    Hi Emily, thanks for visiting planDisney!

    International runners are as welcome as can be to participate in runDisney events! As an avid runDisney participant, I am also anxiously awaiting my opportunity to register for a 2025 race weekend. 

    Before we can register for the 2025 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend races, we must wait for the 2024-2025 runDisney calendar of events to be released! The 2023-2024 runDisney schedule was released in early January of 2023, so my hope is that there will be an announcement around the same time in 2024.  This calendar will include the registration dates for each race weekend. 

    Once registration day comes around there are a few things you can do to prepare. I recommend setting up a runDisney account prior to registration day. This will help when your chance to register arrives, as some of the basic information will be pre-filled for you, such as name, date of birth, and address. Registration typically opens at 10:00 AM ET on, however, this is subject to change. I suggest logging in and being on the site a few minutes in advance. Other information you should have on hand includes emergency contact information, average pace, shirt size, and payment information. Remember, your race bib is not officially yours until you receive a confirmation number after you check out! 

    I hope this was helpful, Emily. Remember, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and the runDisney Blog for announcements regarding future runDisney events. runDisney truly makes every mile magical! If you have any future questions, please visit us again at planDisney!
