    If a race is sold out, is there a wait list option?

    Hi Myrna and welcome to planDisney!

    runDisney races have become such a fun part of my life after running my first 5K about 11 years ago.  Since then, I have participated in about 12 races total and am currently signed up for 3 of the upcoming races.  I am especially excited to head to Disneyland in January for the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend!

    It seems as though race registration is becoming more difficult each time since the popularity of a runDisney race is increasing, so it's not always easy to secure your bib when the races are released.  I missed out on registering for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend for next year when it was first available, but was able to grab a spot when it opened back up.  There is no wait list option for the races, but in my experience, availability sporadically pops up.  You just have to be diligent about checking.  Something that has helped me out is the mobile app called Telegram.  There is a group called "runDisney Alerts" that will post when races open back up for registration and a notification gets sent right to your phone immediately.  It has been super helpful getting my friends into races with me who missed their chance the first time registration opened.  

    As an alternative, there are virtual races you can register for that you can participate in at home.  You still get the beautiful medals for completing the races and you can do it from the comfort of wherever you'd like.

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
