Since It's a popular question, figured I'd create a single central point to track. I'll edit post sell out dates as I can dig them up, please feel free to post below if you notice sell outs. Some of the dates on here are when the sell out was first noticed/reported on WDWMagic. It may have actually sold out prior. I'm not currently breaking down kids races into length, or including Pasta Party or Cheer Squad type things.

Please Note: The Registration Dates listed are the general on sale dates. For the last few years, AP and DVC members were able to early register 1 week before the general public. Limited slots were made available for this, so if an event sold out in pre-reg, slots would still be available to the general public. Also note that some years runDisney offered very early registration at Expos, both for runDisney events, and occasionally others.

@dreamfinder, do you want to include the early registration dates for APs & DVC members? If so, here's what I pulled from the DVC website:

June 7th - 2017 Star Wars Light Side at Disneyland

July 5th - 2017 Princess Half Marathon

August 2nd - 2017 Star Wars Dark Side; general registration opens August 9th

September 13th - 2017 Tinkerbell Half; general registration opens September 20th.


Here's the info on the 2017 SW Dark Side and Tinkerbell:

Star Wars™ Half Marathon – The Dark Side at Walt Disney World Resort
Events Dates: April 20–23, 2017
Location: Walt Disney World Resort in Florida
Early Registration Starts: Tuesday, August 2, 2016
Early Registration Ends: Monday, August 8, 2016 at 8:00 PM Eastern Time


Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend presented by PANDORA® Jewelry

Location: Disneyland Resort in California
Early Registration Starts: Tuesday, September 13, 2016
Early Registration Ends: Monday, September 19, 2016 at 8:00 PM Eastern Time

Thanks for the historical data. Wow, these races have become very popular. If your cursor isn't hovering over the race you want at 11:58 am on registration day, you're SOL....

@LAKid53 thanks for the Dark Side and Tinkerbell info. I haven't added the early reg dates as they are simply one week before the regular dates. I'll add a note as such in the original posts. Also, I don't think anyone really tracked the sell outs for those.

Thanks for the historical data. Wow, these races have become very popular. If your cursor isn't hovering over the race you want at 11:58 am on registration day, you're SOL....
And this what I'm actually hoping to help prove/disprove. For a year or so, that was definitely the case. But the last few events seem to reverting back to how it used to be, where you could register weeks or months after it opened. There are definitely exclusions to the rule, but I hope this thread will help to show the trend whichever way it is going.

@dreamfinder.. Early registration for 2017 Dark Side races have been open for over 30 minutes. No wait time, no races are on hold and the Challenge isn't sold out yet for early registration. I'm a tad surprised, thought at least the Challenge would be on hold by now. Guess I've got the Half and 10K all to myself next year. Just kidding.....I hope not.

You might be proving your theory that race registrations are reverting back to how they used to be.

Updated 2017 Princess, fully sold out less than a month in. Lumiere Challenge for the W&D keeps flipping back and forth, no idea why they can't make up their minds on that one unless charity/tour groups are returning bibs.
