runDisney Springtime Surprise Race Weekend Details

| | |

What is the “surprise” in the new runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend? We finally found out!

This new race weekend will take place in just about four months, and FINALLY, Disney has shared the details we have been waiting for!  What is the “surprise” part of the event?

The first-ever Springtime Surprise Weekend will feature:

  • Expedition Everest 5K (April 1, 2022) – The race will once again feature a nighttime 5K combined with a scavenger hunt, but this time the hunt will be conducted during the 5K.
  • Race for the Taste 10K (April 2, 2022) – The event will mirror the 10K from the past, but now the race will celebrate the newest attraction at Walt Disney World Resort, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT.
  • The Tower of Terror 10-Miler (April 3, 2022) – The race will still be a 10-miler, but will be run in the morning instead of at night.

Are you really looking to test your endurance? Runners can sign up to participate in all three events at the Springtime Surprise Challenge with a total of 19.3 total miles that will earn them a special “challenge’’ medal. But, before that happens, you will get to kick off the weekend relaxing and getting your “zen” with some Sunrise Yoga held on March 31, 2022 in front of Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park.

The runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend is the last in the 2021-2022 race season following the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend (November 4-7), the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend (January 5-9, 2022), and the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend (February 24-27, 2022).

Stay tuned for even more details about runDisney and all Disney events!
