runDisney Announces Expedition Everest 5K, Tower of Terror 10-Miler, and More for Springtime Surprise Weekend 2022

It’s a race through Walt Disney World history for the inaugural runDisney’s Springtime Surprise Weekend, running March 31st through April 3rd, 2022.


The race schedule, themed to attractions found at the resort’s theme parks, is as follows:

  • 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.

Runners who sign up for the Springtime Surprise Challenge, can test their endurance by participating in all three events – 19.3 total miles – and earn a special “challenge’’ medal while perhaps also reminiscing throughout the weekend.
