runDisney Registration Tips for Signing Up

You can check out a full schedule here, which includes race and registration dates. Club runDisney registration opens up a week prior to general registration, so you can look into whether that membership and early registration are worth it for you.

How to Register

A few days before registration opens, you’ll want to ensure that you have an account created on the runDisney website. This will help to make sure your process is as smooth and prepped as possible beforehand.

Before signing up, make sure you have all the necessary information handy. This will include average pace, t-shirt size, e-mail address, home address, and birth date. You will want to make sure to be near your computer or mobile device when registration begins, as spots do fill and sell out very quickly.

A few minutes before registration opens, log into your account. You’ll use the main navigation to find the event of your choosing, where you can click “Register Now.” If you click to register prior to opening, you’ll be placed in a waiting room. Once registration opens, everyone is randomly assigned a spot in the queue, so you won’t be able to guarantee early entry by getting in line earlier.

Once it’s your turn you can enter your information to register. Your spot is not held until you see the confirmation on your screen. When confirmed, you’ll receive a confirmation e-mail and you’re good to go!
