Doctor Who
and the MCU be damned. The two most intense fandoms on Earth are Disney nuts and running nerds. So, it's fair to say that a year off of running events at Disney bottled up a ton of energy with nowhere to go.

Luckily, we won't get to see what happens when an ultra-fit Frozen fan goes nuclear. Disney just announced the return of several of its runs, starting this fall.

The first event is a half-marathon in November, before a full marathon in January. After another half-marathon in February, the slate of events wraps with a springtime weekend in March. Take a look at the events below.

Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend: November 4-7, 2021 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend: January 5-9, 2022
Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend: February 24-27, 2022
runDisney Springtime Surprise Weekend: March 31-April 3, 2022
