runDisney Merchandise for the Tinker Bell and Princess Half Marathons

Looks like runDisney is really taking advantage of the fact that more woman than ever are participating in their events!  Today the Disney Parks Blog reported the return of the coveted Disney Dooney’s for the Tinker Bell and Princess Half Marathons.  The designs are the same as last year when they were introduced, but will have a tag included that notes the year.  I honestly can’t say I’m thrilled with that, as I would’ve like to see a new design.

Also released were new pins for both races.  The Princess medal pin looks the same as last year, but I can’t tell if the year is on the pin or not…

I was most excited to see the mini medals (not to be confused with “Minnie” medals 😉 ) for the new runDisney vinylmations!  I had wondered if we were going to see this when they released the vinyls for the WDW Marathon last week and now we can see it’s true!  Matt from Vinylmation Kingdom also confirmed with a cast member that we will be seeing these for even more future races, including the Tower of Terror 10-Miler!  Looks like I’m going to have to start making room on my desk for these 🙂

More Mini Medals!

What do you think of this new merchandise?  What else would you like to see for runDisney events?

Walt Disney World Marathon 20th Anniversary Dooney & Bourke Commemorative Bags

Say it ain’t so!  Special Walt Disney World Marathon 20th anniversary Dooney & Bourke bags!!!  Following in the footsteps of the Tinker Bell and Princess Half Marathon’s earlier this year, the 20th Anniversary Marathon Weekend will have special commemorative Dooney & Bourke bags.  Check em out!

The great thing about these is that you are able to pre-order them, unlike the prior races where you had to show up at the Expo early and cross your fingers they weren’t sold out in the first 5 minutes.  The letter carrier is $200 and the satchel is $280.  Click here to place you’re order!

I’m still on the fence about getting one.  I’m not completely in love with the design, but this will be my first (and probably only) marathon, so what better way to remember it than with a Dooney 🙂  I do have a soft spot for satchels…

What do you think?  Will you be getting a WDW Marathon Disney Dooney?

 

Registration is Now Open for the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend

Registration is now open for the 2nd Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend!  The race weekend will take place January 18 – 20, 2013, only 1 week following Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend.  This is a fun race full of sassy, winged runners flying through the Disneyland parks and the streets of Anaheim.

This is a great opportunity to get one of those coveted Coast to Coast medals if you are planning on running a Walt Disney World race later in the year.  You know you want one…I know I do!  Also taking place that weekend on Saturday, January 19th are the Never Land Family Fun Run 5K and various kids races. These are a fun way for the whole family to get involved in the weekend.  The 5K will be run through the Disneyland parks, which the dashed are in Downtown Disney next door.   

Pricing for the events are as follows:

Tinker Bell Half Marathon

  • $150 by July 17, 2012
  • $165 between July 18 and September 4, 2012
  • $180 on or after September 5, 2012

Tinker Bell Half Marathon Team Category

  • $330 between July 18 and September 4, 2012
  • $360 on or after September 5, 2012

The Tinker Bell Half Marathon Expo will be open on January 18 & 19, 2013 in the Disneyland Hotel Exhibit Hall.  You must visit the Expo to pick up your race packet and it is also a good opportunity to pick up all of that fab race weekend merchandise.  They had some pretty great Dooney & Bourke bags last year!

I wish I could make this race…it looks so fun!  I would love to through on a pair of wings and soar through Disneyland, but the Walt Disney World Marathon is calling my name.  I hope in the future, runDisney puts some additional time between these races.  As always, visit the runDisney event page for more information on all of the events taking place that weekend.

Remember to follow the “second start to the right and straight on til morning” to find the finish line!

Are you running the Tinker Bell Half Marathon?

Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Merchandise

Well if this race wasn’t costing me enough already, the Disney Parks Blog just had to go and give a preview of some of the merchandise that will be available during the Princess Half Marathon Weekend.  I will now be coming not only sore, but broke.  It is my first half marathon afterall…I will need many mementos!

Here are some of the items:

Princess Half Marathon T-Shirts

I want “I Did It!” shirt, but will I be jinxing myself if I buy that in advance?  I hope some of these shirts are available in moisture wicking fabric so I can wear them during my training runs at home.  Yes, I did just imply multiple shirts.

Princess Tiara

How super cute it this?!  I love that the “jewels” light up!  I don’t think that this will be comfortable to wear for the race, but it will be great for walking around the parks afterwards while I show off my medal.

Princess Dooneys!!

And here we have the piece de resistance.  Disney really knows how to get us ladies!  Princess Half Marathon Dooneys…seriously?!?  Well I definitely need the cross body bag.  My favorite part is the medallion for the 2012 race.  That is such a great touch and what better memento than a Dooney!  Fingers crossed there will be some left by the time I get to the Expo on Saturday.
