RUNDISNEY HELP & SUPPORT
The following Frequently Asked Questions have been prepared to help answer questions you may have about your next runDisney race experience.
For participant entitlements, please visit the Event tab on runDisney.com for each event category.
Once your registration has been processed, you will receive a confirmation email. You will also be able to view/manage your runDisney registration information from your runDisney profile.
Yes. There is a 16 minute per mile minimum pace requirement for all runDisney races. Your time starts when you cross the start line. We suggest that you train for a 15 minute per mile pace to allow time for restroom breaks, photo opportunities, and any other unexpected delays. Please note that anyone not able to maintain the pace may be picked up at any point along the course and transported to the Family Reunion Area. For further information, please visit the Runner Info tab on runDisney.com.
Yes. Please visit the Pacing Requirements section found within the Runner Info page for details regarding pacing requirements for each event weekend race.
Anyone not able to maintain the pace may be picked up and transported to the finish at any point along the course.
Theme park tickets must be purchased separately from your race registration. Tickets can be purchased by calling 407-WDW-IRUN.
A theme park ticket is not needed to participate in a runDisney race.
Personalized bibs are provided to all runners that register prior to the Proof of Time deadline, which can be found in runDisney.com. The first name provided during the registration process will be printed, along with your runner tracking number, on your bib. Please know, we are unable to print nicknames or aliases on bibs.
Corral placement is based on each individual's anticipated finish time provided during registration for the 5K or the 10K and on the anticipated finish time or proof of time provided for Half Marathons and the Walt Disney World® Marathon. Bib numbers will be available on your event waiver approximately two weeks prior to the event. For our Half Marathon and Marathon events, waivers and the Corral Assignment Chart with corresponding bib numbers will be listed on the Runner Info tab of runDisney.com. Regrettably, we do not provide this information pre-arrival for our 5K or 10K events.
Download and complete your personalized race waiver online (available approximately two weeks prior to the event). You must have a valid ID in order to pick up your race bib (driver's license, passport, Military ID, Government issued ID).
Participants are required to pick up their own packets during Expo hours. Individuals are not permitted to pick up participant packets on behalf of other adults for safety reasons. Parents or legal guardians will sign a minor participant's waiver and pick up the packet with their own ID. The payer or the registrant may pick up ChEAR Squad packets.
Yes, however, costumes cannot interfere with the safety of you or other runners.
Headphones can be worn but are discouraged due to audio messages played throughout the course to ensure the safety of all runners.

All races are non-transferable between individuals or between event weekends. Race entries/bibs are not transferable from one guest to another.
Participants staying at a host hotel, which includes all Walt Disney World® Resort hotels, should use event transportation to travel to all weekend events.

This just means that you are not yet registered for any runDisney events. Once you login you will see the options to register for any upcoming events.

For starting corral placement, proof of time must be submitted by the participant for each individual race during registration or by Proof of Time Deadline.
Example for Wine & Dine: If proof of time is not provided by July 31, 2018, data provided is incomplete or cannot be verified, you will be placed in the last start corral. No corral changes will be made after July 31, 2018.
Past runDisney races may be used as proof of time, however they are not automatically input for your race registration.
Proof of time submissions must be made within your registration and cannot be accepted via email.
To update the proof of time for a minor only, please email email@example.com.
For any questions regarding proof of time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can help you with that. You will need to have the individual who paid for the registration send an email (and cc: second registrant who wants to manage their own registration) via the Contact Us section on runDisney.com giving permission to unlink the registrations. Please include the specific event category and participant information in the email. You will then be notified by Technical Support when complete or if they have any questions regarding the request.
