April 16th RunDisney Event Cancelled

Disney has cancelled the runDisney event that was due to take place on April 16th 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak around the world.


April 16th RunDisney Event Cancelled

Disney has announced that the "Star Wars Rival Run" runDisney event at the Walt Disney World resort has been cancelled. The event was due to take place on April 16th. Disney are still telling guests that parks will be open again March 31st, which does raise some questions. However, Disney's reason for this cancellation is free up medical professionals and first responders to attend to the Coronavirus outbreak patients.

Disney's official statement is below.

With circumstances continuing to change rapidly around the globe, we are making critical and timely decisions based on guidance from local, national and international health agencies. As we have shared before, we are basing our decisions on the safety and well-being of our Cast Members and our Guests, since there is nothing more important than that.

In an abundance of caution, the 2020 Star Wars Rival Run Weekend will be cancelled. In addition, because our runDisney races require the presence of local medical professionals and first responders to monitor and treat runners, this will free up those resources for more critical needs during this time.

All participants for the Star Wars Rival Run Weekend at Walt Disney World Resort who purchased their registrations on runDisney.com will receive a refund for their race registration.

Star Wars Rival Run Weekend:
Runners registered for the 2020 Star Wars Rival Run Weekend at Walt Disney World Resort will receive a refund back to their original form of payment for the following:

- Race registration (Half Marathon, 10k, 5k, Rival Run Challenge)
- Commemorative merchandise
- ChEAR Squad
- Processing fee

Guests who’ve already received a partial refund will receive their remaining balance to a Disney gift card.

Refund Timing:
Refunds from runDisney can be expected to be processed in four to six weeks. If you haven’t received your refund after six weeks, please visit the “contact us” section on runDisney.com.

Alternate booking methods:
Runners who’ve booked through a charity or tour operator should reach out directly to that organization. Runners who’ve booked through the Walt Disney Travel Company may call them at 407-939-4786 (407-939-IRUN) for available refund options.

On-sale dates:
On-sale dates for future runDisney races will be adjusted, and we will have more information to share soon.
