    When does the RunDisney 2025 marathon open?

    Hi Lauren!

    runDisney events are renowned for turning every runner's dream into a magical reality. Just picture yourself racing through the enchanting corridors of Disney theme parks, cheered on by beloved characters, and celebrated with remarkable medals that gleam with Disney magic. It's not just a race; it's an incredible experience.

    One of my fondest memories is watching the last of the runners cross the finish line of the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon a few years ago. The runners were tired, and some wanted to give up. As they passed everyone cheered them on, clapping, chanting, and telling them they believed in them. It was one of the most wholesome experiences I have ever been part of and truly brought the magic of Disney to all our hearts that day.

    As you lace up your shoes, you'll find yourself surrounded by the whimsical world of Disney, with characters lining the course, ready to offer high-fives, hugs, and endless encouragement. Whether you're sprinting by Mickey Mouse or sharing a laugh with Goofy, every step is filled with joy and wonder.

    And let's talk about those medals - each one a masterpiece, crafted with the same care and attention to detail that Disney pours into its beloved films. They're not just tokens of achievement; they're keepsakes that capture the spirit of the event and the magic of Disney.

    But the magic doesn't stop there. While you wait to start your race, you'll be entertained by live performances that set the stage for an unforgettable experience. It's not just about crossing the finish line; it's about savoring every moment of the journey, from the expo where you can immerse yourself in all things related to running, to the themed merchandise that allows you to carry a piece of the magic home with you.

    And let's not forget about the training tips available on the website, ensuring that every runner is well-prepared to conquer the course and make memories that will last a lifetime.

    Mark your calendars because runDisney 2025 is shaping up to be amazing. The Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend is set January 8th to January 12th, 2025, with general registration opening on April 9, 2024. And for those who dream of running in the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend, mark July 30, 2024, on your calendar, because that's when registration opens for the magical event taking place from February 20th to February 24th, 2025. Be prepared as registration fills up very quickly! 

    So, lace up those shoes, embrace the magic, and get ready to write your own Disney fairy tale on the pavement of the most magical racecourses on earth.
