About 25,000 people register for each race with fees around $195 for a half marathon. Not only does Disney benefit financially when there are races, but the Register reported that Orange County, California, sees an additional $20 million to $30 million generated for the area. It also impacts infrastructure for the City of Anaheim, which has to close streets and ramps and have additional police stationed during the races.
RunDisney had postponed registration for the Light Side Star Wars event that had been scheduled for January 2018.
Refunds will be given to those who had pre-registered for the events, the newspaper reported.
The last runDisney event in Disneyland, for the time being, is the Nov. 9 through 12th Super Heroes Half Marathon weekend.
