    I want to do the 19.3 mile challenge in the 2025 food and wine. When would I need to purchase my membership?

    Hi Lezli, 

    Welcome to planDisney! I am so happy to see your question about the 2025 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend, as I just returned home from completing the Two Course Challenge during this year’s Wine & Dine Weekend! 

    You may have seen Disney Parks Blog recently shared the runDisney 2024-2025 Calendar of Events. The 2024-2025 runDisney season includes a new Disneyland Halloween Half Marathon Weekend, along with the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend and the Walt Disney World race weekends we all love. 

    It sounds like you’re asking when you should purchase a Club runDisney Membership for guaranteed race registration benefits for the 2025 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend.  The 2023-2024 Membership period includes race registration benefits for Platinum and Gold members for the following race weekends:

    • 2024 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend
    • 2025 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend
    • 2025 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend
    • 2025 Disney Princess Marathon Weekend
    • 2025 runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend

    Based on this information, it seems like you will need a Club runDisney Membership for the 2024-2025 Membership period. The 2023-2024 Club runDisney Membership went on sale May 23, 2023, and while I don’t have an exact date, I believe the 2024-2025 Memberships will go on sale around the same time of year in 2024. The best thing you can do right now is sign up for the runDisney Mailing List, as well as watch the runDisney Blog and Disney Parks Blog for future announcements. They will also announce the 2025-2026 runDisney Calendar of Events which will include the registration dates for each race of the season.

    In the meantime, if you’re ready to train for runDisney events, you can find a list of Training Programs on the runDisney site. These guides are great because they have options to prepare you for any of the races offered by runDisney, from 5K to Dopey Challenge!

    I hope this was helpful, Lezli. If you have any future questions, whether you're planning for runDisney or planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, come back and see me at planDisney!

    Wishing you many magical miles,
