Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend 2025

January 8, 2025 @ 4:30 am - January 12, 2025 @ 1:00 pm

You can be part of Dragon Master Initiative’s Team Fired Up for a truly Dopey Event Weekend! Team Fired Up has limited spots available for the 2025 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend.

Dragon Master Initiative has a data-driven approach to research for cancer and other rare diseases. We promote information sharing and seek to make research more effective by empowering collaboration. By assembling data from previous and current patients and making research data more accessible, we will find cancer cures in our lifetime. By joining our fundraising team, you can help make that happen even faster!

To join our team, register and pay the fee to hold your spot, and start fundraising! The registration fee does apply to your fundraising goal.

As part of Team Fired Up, you will receive:

  • One guaranteed registration spot for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend race selected at the time of registration*.
  • Access to our private Facebook group – meet & interact with your fellow runners and volunteers who are working that race.
  • Race day goodies, including an exclusive Team Fired Up medal & tech shirt!
  • All of the benefits provided by runDisney, including a participant shirt, finisher medal, and race bib.
  • Access to specially priced rooms at select Event Host Resorts*.

Thank you for supporting cancer patients by joining Team Fired Up. By submitting your registration, you are agreeing to the Dragon Master Initiative’s fundraising terms and understand that this is a serious commitment. Entry fees for all races are based on the registration date and are non-refundable. Use the chart above to determine the fundraising minimum for the event you are registering for. After completing online registration, you will receive an email with a link to set up your fundraising page.

We will also have fun contests for hitting your fundraising goals, and top fundraisers will be eligible for additional prizes!**

​To join the waitlist for a 2024-25 season race, you can fill out the form here. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.

*runDisney usually makes special room rates available to charity runners. We will pass along those links to team members if/when we receive them for each race.

**All fundraisers will be required to raise more than the traditional bib cost for the race before their runDisney registration link is issued.  Registering on our site holds your run spot while you fundraise.  If 50% of the fundraising goal is not reached 60 days prior to the race, and 100% of the fundraising goal is not met 30 days prior to the race, you risk forfeiting your bib.  To make arrangements for fundraising during the aforementioned 30-60 day window and/or request an extension, email us.  Runners may also pay their full goal price in lieu of fundraising.
