    Do you know if they are doing the Kessel Run challenge again in 2017?
    Thanks!

  • Hi! The details for the 2017 Coast to Coast Challenges are not listed on the runDisney site yet. I will keep my eyes open & share as soon as I hear! Were you a participant this year?

    Are there any fall 2017 Disney races planned??

  • I’m sure there are, but official dates have not been announced yet. Per the runDisney site, they only list events thru the Tinkerbell Half in 5/17. As soon as dates are announced, I will be sure to share them! (This post was originally published in the beginning of October 2015, so I’m hoping around that time again!) Have a great day!
