Effective in 2025, Club runDisney memberships will transition to a traditional calendar year format, running from January 1st to December 31st. Previously, memberships ran from October 1st through September 30th of the following year.

To ease the transition for current members, all existing Club runDisney memberships will be automatically extended for three months, free of charge. This extension ensures current memberships remain valid through December 31, 2024.

The complimentary extension offers additional benefits to current Gold and Platinum members participating in the upcoming 2024 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend (October 31 – November 4). Gold members will receive early access to the runDisney Merchandise Shop, allowing them to snag coveted race weekend souvenirs before anyone else. Platinum members will enjoy exclusive access to Club runDisney Headquarters, offering expedited bib pick-up and the opportunity to secure coveted early start group placement for their race.

The next runDisney race weekend on the calendar is the 2024 Walt Disney World Springtime Surprise Weekend. While this falls outside the extended membership window, runners can still consider joining Club runDisney before the 2025 season kicks off to gain access to a year of special benefits and early registration opportunities for all upcoming races.
