runDisney Shares Exactly What The “Surprise” Will Be During Springtime Surprise Weekend

The new runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend will take place in about four months, and Disney has shared details about what the “surprise” part of the event entails.

What’s Happening:

  • The runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend takes place March 31 through April 3, 2022 at Walt Disney World.
  • This first time event will take themes from past runDisney events and combine them with exciting new twists for a unique new experience, whose theme will change each year.

  • The inaugural Springtime Surprise Weekend will feature:
    • Expedition Everest 5K (April 1, 2022) – The race will once again feature a nighttime 5K combined with a scavenger hunt, but this time the hunt will be conducted during the 5K.
    • Race for the Taste 10K (April 2, 2022) – The event will mirror the 10K from the past, but now the race will celebrate the newest attraction at Walt Disney World Resort, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT.
    • The Tower of Terror 10-Miler (April 3, 2022) – The race will still be a 10-miler, but will be run in the morning instead of at night.
