Several big changes are coming to runDisney’s fall events in 2016. First is a set of new races coming to the Walt Disney World® Resort Wine & Dine weekend and the second is a name change at the 2016 Avengers race at the Disneyland® Resort.
Until this week runDisney’s Wine & Dine weekend consisted of a half-marathon and the Mickey’s Jingle Jungle 5K. But in 2016 racers will have more options to choose from!
