    If I have a platinum club run Disney account, do my two guaranteed slots for run Disney weekend mean that I can secure two dopey challenges, or, because the dopey challenge represents four races, I cannot secure two dopey challenges but only two races?

    Hi Robert, 

    A few years ago, I was lucky enough to complete the Dopey Challenge at the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. I’m so glad you found us here at planDisney between one of the many training runs involved in preparing for the challenge! 

    Your Platinum Club runDisney membership includes a guaranteed opportunity to purchase two race registrations in each race weekend. Before general registration, Club runDisney Gold and Platinum members will receive an email that contains a link to registration. Early registration is available only for the Club runDisney member

    You can use your early access to secure a registration for the Dopey Challenge for yourself. However, you cannot use the second registration to sign up another runner. If you’re planning on running any other race weekends during your Club runDisney race membership year, you can use your two early registrations to sign up for the 5K and Challenge offered for that weekend, or a combination of the race distances offered that weekend if you are not interested in the Challenge available.  

    If you are looking at a Club runDisney membership for the future, a Gold Club runDisney membership currently includes one advance race registration, so you could use that for the Dopey Challenge and one race or challenge per race weekend during your membership. 

    Gold and Platinum Club runDisney memberships are currently unavailable. 2023-2024 memberships went on sale in May 2023, so if you’re looking for the 2024-2025 season, I would keep an eye on the runDisney website and runDisney Blog for future announcements. If you have any future questions, whether you’re planning a Walt Disney World vacation, or you’d like to discuss more runDisney topics, I’ll be here for you at planDisney!

    Wishing you many magical miles,
