This year, the Wine and Dine Half Marathon achieves a new record- the race has grown from 11,000 runners in 2010 to the more than 48,000 expected participants this year! Included in that number is the 145 “perfect” runners. These runners have participated in Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon.

The race weekend includes events for participants of all ages and skill levels, including runDisney Kids Races, a 5K, a 10K and a half marathon, as well as the Disney Two Course Challenge (the 10K and Half Marathon). The weekend will also feature a Health & Fitness Expo at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, including exclusive merchandise and gadgets to inspire fitness and nutrition.

The Disney Fall Feast 5K begins at 5:30 am, it starts and finishes at Epcot. The Disney Wine & Dine 10K and Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon both start at the Magic Kingdom and finish at Epcot. Both races begin at 5:30 am, as well.

Free and open to the public, the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo takes place over three days beginning Thursday, October 31, 2019. The Expo is your headquarters for everything you need for the race weekend, be sure to stop by during the following hours of operation:

As epic as this milestone is for the runDisney community, it’s a personal milestone for myself. I’ve spoken out about how hooked I was on runDisney after running the 2019 Princess 5K and immediately signed up for the Wine and Dine Half as soon as it opened up. This will be my first road race over 3 miles, as well as my first Half Marathon!
