Star Wars Rival Run Weekend Event Cancelled at Walt Disney World

The Walt Disney World Resort just released a statement regarding the cancellation of the Star Wars Rival Run Weekend event:

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

Runners registered for the 2020 Star Wars Rival Run Weekend 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. Refunds from runDisney can be expected to be processed in four to six weeks. If you haven’t received your refund after six weeks, please visit the “contact us” section on runDisney.com and send us a message.

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 for available refund options.
