It has been confirmed that a Disneyland® 10K has been added to the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend. The weekend is scheduled for August 30 through September 1, 2013 at the Disneyland Resort.
The addition of the 10k event offers one more opportunity for those looking for an extra Disney related challenge. The marathon weekend also includes the half marathon, the Family Fun Run 5k, kids races, a health and fitness expo and a pasta party in the park.
“The new 10K will be a timed event and take runners through Disneyland park, Disney California Adventure park and on the streets of Anaheim,” states Faron Kelley, Director, Marketing & Communications, Disney Sports, on the Disney Parks Blog.
A limited number of individuals may also up the ante and participate in the all new Dumbo Double Dare. Participants will run the Disneyland 10K on Saturday and the Disneyland Half Marathon on Sunday for a total of 19.3 miles. Those who finish the Dumbo Double Dare will receive a special finisher medal in addition to the half marathon and 10K medals.
Registration for the events of the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend open on January 22, 2013. It should be noted that the previous half marathon sold out in just over one month.
Estimates indicate about 23,000 people participated in last year’s Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend. For more information on the event or to register contact RunDisney!
