runDisney Star Wars Rival Run Weekend Cancellation

Disney Travel News

By: Disney Destinations
With circumstances continuing to change rapidly around the globe, Disney is making critical and timely decisions based on guidance from local, national and international health agencies. As shared before, decisions are based on the safety and well-being of  Cast Members and 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 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 will receive a refund for their race registration.

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 options.

Star Wars Rival Run Weekend:
Runners who registered on for the 2020  Star Wars Rival Run Weekend race 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 in approximately four to six weeks. If you haven't received a refund due after six weeks, please visit the “contact us” section on

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