    Hi! I'm considering running the inaugural Springtime Surprise Challenge. Due to its unique nature, I'm curious if runDisney will be recognizing "perfect" runners for this event (assuming I run each year at least through 2026). Thanks!

    Hi there, Mark! Welcome back to planDisney.

    Completing a runDisney race is a bucket list item for me - I've been foiled a few times but I keep wishing that the stars will align so I can lace up my shoes at The Most Magical Place on Earth. When I saw the announcement about the runDisney Springtime Surprise, I got so excited! I love that they are getting into the fun of The World's Most Magical Celebration and "celebrating yestermorrow" with a combination of beloved runDisney courses and themes and some fun twists. I'm thrilled to hear you're considering this race too.

    You've asked a great question, and I wasn't able to get a hold of Coach Mickey to get an answer. Luckily, the Cast Members at runDisney are always lovely and quick to run to the phone or computer to answer Guests' questions. I recommend reaching out to them via email or by calling (407) 939-iRUN. 

    While it's true that in the past, runDisney has recognized legacy or "perfect" runners, who have run the same race for 5 years in a row (including the inaugural race), we're not sure if this will continue with the Springtime Surprise because in-person runDisney races are not entirely back to pre-COVID operations. I would keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more information as we get closer to registration day in addition to reaching out to runDisney directly.

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question, Mark! Many of us on the panel are runners with runDisney experience, and it's our pleasure to assist as you plan for race weekend this spring. See you on the race course!

    Wishing you much magic,
