Registration is now open for the 2013 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend!! The festivities will be taking place August 30 – September 1, 2013 and I couldn’t be more excited! This race weekend will be my first trip to Disneyland and what better wat to celebrate than by getting my Coast to Coast medal!
This year will feature the brand new Disneyland 10K. This is the first time runDisney has ever offered a race in this distance and it is a great opportunity for those who are looking to take the next step from a 5K to take part in a Disney race. Along with the 10K, runDisney is having the first Dumbo Double Dare, which is a brand new honor you can receive if you complete both the 10K and the half marathon. Oh yeah…I’m there!
Also taking place that weekend is the Disneyland Family Fun Run 5K and Kids Races. The 5K will begin at 5:30 am in the Disneyland Resort and will be immediately followed by the Disneyland 10K at 6:15 am. I’m sure some super fast runners will try to attempt both the 5K and the 10K, but I’m going to take that extra 45 minutes to sleep in The Kids Races will be held in the Downtown Disney District at 10:00 am that same day. These are always so much fun to watch!

Make sure to visit the runDisney event page for more information on all of the events taking place that weekend including the Pasta in the Park Party, park tickets and ChEar Squad info!
The buzz all over the internets is that these races are going to sell out FAST! In 2012, the Disneyland Half Marathon sold out in a few weeks. Now with the addition of the 10K and the new Dumbo medal, more people are jumping to register. So get on it!
I am beyond excited to take on this Dumbo Double Dare challenge and also get my Coast to Coast medal!
