runDisney holds multiple races every year at Walt Disney World. Runners like to enhance their race attire and dress up as Disney characters. There are costume guidelines, however.

An email was sent recently to participants of the runDisney 2023 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon explaining some changes to those guidelines.

  • Layered costumes that could conceal prohibited items are not permitted.
  • Costume props including, without limitation, those that surround the entire body, are inflatable, or physically connect multiple participants to each other are not permitted.
  • Foam swords and all-plastic lightsabers may be permitted, however, they may not exceed 36″ in length.

The complete costume policy and guidelines can be found on

The next race coming up is the 2023 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend November 2-5 followed by the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend January 3-7, 2024.
