WDW Marathon Weekend - January 2022

Hi All,


Husband and I looking to return to WDW in Jan 2022 to take part in the Dopey Challenge at Marathon Weekend.

We were lucky enough to go in Jan 2020 to complete it but obviously it was virtual this year!

Anyone else looking at taking part in 2022 and if so have you heard anything about it?!

Thanks in Advance and look forward to hearing from you!

Son is looking to do this too (it should have been this year, but didnít want to do the virtual one). Will follow this with interest.

I feel like I am poised on the RunDisney website all day every day waiting for updates!

Has he done Marathon Weekend before? Honestly it was incredible, running down Main Street USA in the dark, crowds cheering you on and the castle all lit up!

My only concern is that they will reduce race capacity so it will be even harder to get spaces

Never done the Disney one before. Heís even got his brother to take up running so he can aim for the 10k (or more! ). I think heís a bit concerned about signing up, and then not being able to get there, as itís a lot of money. Now this years has gone there may be information soon.

I hope so! I know that this year they offered full refunds to everyone who didn't want to complete it virtually so I image they would do the same this year too.

Under normal circumstances they tend to release marathon weekend bibs in April (I think one year it was a bit later but that was an exception)?

RunDisney have had a rubbish time of it having to cancel lots of races for lots of runners so my guess is they wonít make a decision on it until there is a clearer picture. Plus I think theyíve trimmed the staff levels back to bare bones.

I hope it goes ahead - itís my absolute favourite WDW race weekend

I think if they change from actual to virtual they will do, but if the races go ahead and the U.K. at that time canít go into the U.S I wouldnít be certain they would. Itís a lot of money isnít it - our last one was about $2500 I think. That was three Dopeys plus my non running DD did the 5 and 10k. I would have hated to lose that money!

This is pretty much our issue. If tha race goes ahead, but we canít travel it is a lot of money to lose! I will keep watch on theRunDisney page.
