    I read on the Mom's Panel that sometimes you can find registration spots for sold out RunDisney races through charity groups or travel operators. How do I find these things? I'm interested in the Food and Wine Half Marathon, specifically.

    Hi Amy! The 2018 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend is going to be nothing less than spectacular! I'm so excited you are looking at all possible options to take part in the Half Marathon!

    I "Ran for a Cause" last year and it made crossing the finish line that much sweeter! There are numerous organizations participating in the runDisney Charity Groups Program. Not only do you get to participate in a great race, you have the opportunity to support some amazing groups!

    Simply go to the "Registration" page of the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend website, scroll down and you will see "Run for a Cause." From there, you can review each runDisney Charity Group to learn more about the organization and criteria for participants to be a part of their group during the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend.

    Aside from helping a great organization, you will benefit from guaranteed race entry, as long as the runDisney Charity Group has spots available. You will also have specially-priced Disney Resort hotel rates, specially-priced theme park tickets and select discounts on other race weekend amenities.

    I'm not an avid runner but I LOVE runDisney. I proudly wore my medal last year after crossing the finish line. It was a personal victory and one that I will treasure forever because I ran for more than myself. Each step was made to benefit a runDisney Charity Group and I couldn't be more proud to have been a part of the race.

    If you have any other questions as you are deciding which runDisney Charity Group to run for, please let me know.

    Have a magical day!
