    Want to volunteer for Disney marathon races. How do I do that? What is the website?

    Hi there, Janet! Welcome back to planDisney. We're so glad you decided to stop by again with a great question!

    As a frequent runDisney race participant, I appreciate that the events are a huge success because of the magical volunteers. Every runDisney race season, roughly 15,000 volunteers are needed to assist with the race weekend events, from bib pick-up at the Health & Fitness Expo to manning the water stops along the course and awarding racers with their finisher's medal. 

    RunDisney volunteer slots go almost as quickly as slots for the races themselves, and you'll often need to register and sign up months in advance. To get started, head to the runDisney website, and towards the bottom of the page (underneath Exhibitors & Vendors), click race Track Shack Events – Race Volunteers. Track Shack is the company that coordinates the volunteers for events in the Central Florida running community, including runDisney. You'll need to set up an account on their website. If you have any questions, give them a call at (407) 392-2432 or email There is also a Facebook group forum you can join called Track Shack Volunteers, which has a wealth of information.

    If you want to specialize in areas such as medical volunteering, then you'll need to have background and knowledge in health-related issues. Volunteering in the medical tents is through AdventHealth, and you can email to inquire. 

    Thank you, Janet, for wanting to make a difference in the magical runDisney racing community! I'll see ya out there on the course real soon!

Hi, I'm Eean from Pennsylvania! I may have an unusual name, but my passion for Disney is not unique.

I'm that mom who always has her ears perked at PTO meetings, in the grocery store aisle, or at my monthly Bunco club for an opportunity to give someone a planning tip to help make their vacation even more magical.
