Update: The medals have arrived! A notice from runDisney says all the medals are on-site and will be ready for runners. Crisis averted!
Original: Runners may not receive medals at the finish line at runDisney’s 2022 Springtime Surprise Weekend. Disney has alerted runners that the medals may not arrive in time and may need to be mailed.
The communication from runDisney cites global supply chain challenges and asks runners to confirm their mailing address.
In advance of the weekend events, we wanted to share with you the unfortunate possibility that our event medals may not arrive from our supplier in time for the event, due to recent global supply chain challenges. Although we have been working to resolve this matter, we cannot guarantee at this time the medals will be available at the finish line.
We understand that receiving a race medal is a special moment that epitomizes the hard work and dedication you’ve shown while training for the event. Please know that if the medals do not arrive by race time, we will get the well-deserved medal(s) to those who participated in the event, in the most timely fashion possible.
The 2022 Springtime Surprise Weekend will run March 31 – April 3 and will feature 5k, 10k and 10-mile races. With the events beginning in just a few days, runDisney must be fairly confident it’s a real possibility they won’t receive the medals in time.
