We were told to expect some more information from RunDisney in the Summer about the inaugural event in September 2016 and they haven’t hung around with the release of the details of just what to expect at the race weekend. The Inaugural Half Marathon Weekend event is scheduled to take place on September 23-25, 2016.
The new three-day race weekend will involve kids races, a 5K family race and a half marathon, plus several family fun experiences such as the Health and Fitness Expo, a Friday night private party and the Saturday night pre-race Pasta Party.
