- Hi Carole!
You are in luck! Saratoga Springs is one of the host resorts for Wine and Dine Half Marathon weekend.
The runDisney buses will run to and from your resort to all race weekend events. (expo for packet pick-up, 5K, half marathon, party, etc.)
The pickup locations will be posted in your resort lobby. The buses will run continuously during the hours of the expo, and during the races. There may be a brief stop when the race begins, but then they will continue to run back and forth. You will be getting exact times in your final race instructions email. There will also be printed booklets at the expo with the information.
My advice is to get on one of the earliest buses before the race. They usually start running at 7 p.m. and all runners are supposed to be on a bus no later than 8 p.m. I like to be on one of the first ones, as the lines start getting longer as the night progresses.
I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions. Have a great trip! The Wine and Dine is my favorite race!!
