It’s finally time to register for the runDisney Disneyland half marathon! Today, at noon EST, you can sign up at rundisney.com to take part in this amazing weekend. This is one of my favorite races, and the first time I ever visited Disneyland was when I ran it in 2012. I had hoped to be able to come back for 2015, but my money tree hasn’t started producing anything yet.
However I am stoked to let you in on a few details that have been released and get you pumped up for registration day! This particular year is a special one, because it’s the 10th anniversary of the race. As if runDisney medals weren’t cool enough, there will be a special commemorative 10 year one placed around your neck after you cross the finish line.
Also, there will be a special party, see below, taken from the official press release:
“… a special Disneyland Half Marathon Annual party. This private, ticketed event, held Thursday evening Sept 3, will give guests access to select attractions, Disney entertainment and character meet & greets in Disneyland Park West Side.”
How fun! Oh, you need even more to celebrate? How about the newly-announced 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration? The special party will offer an exclusive viewing of the new “Paint the Night” parade!
This weekend promises to be jam packed with fun from the health and fitness expo, to the kids races, and the 5k, 10k, and half marathon. Also, I DARE you to sign up for the Dumbo Double Dare race challenge!

QOTD: Will you be signing up this year? Have you ever been to Disneyland?
I’ve only been to Disneyland once for Tink and definitely cannot wait to go back. I’m going to be waiting next to my money tree 😉
I hear ya!
I love DDD, but with the NYC Marathon on my fall calendar, I am not sure I can handle a trip to CA too. My favorite Disney races are the ones in CA and Tink is coming up soon! C and I are excited to run that one for the first time over mother’s day weekend!
I love DL races! I had a blast at tink last year, wish I was going this year. What a fun trip for yall!

I was debating on running this one, but heard it is so hot. I’m going to try to sign up for the Avengers Half in November instead.
it was “warm” but I’m so used to the heat and it wasn’t nearly as humid as I am used to. Hubby would love to do avengers or star wars!

One day my money tree will grow too and I’ll run a race at Disneyland! 😉
I SO wish I could run this year, but my money tree is having the same luck. Hopefully next year!
you would love it!

I signed up two weeks ago for Dumbo during AP registration. I love all of the DL races so much (it helps that I’m close by so they are technically my local races) and I’m so excited for the 10th year anniversary as it will be my 5 year running anniversary (my first race was the 2010 DL half!)
