Registration opens today at noon EST for the 2014 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend!! This magical race weekend will be taking place August 28 – August 31, 2014 and features a 5K, 10K, half marathon and the oh so popular Dumbo Double Dare Challenge! And don’t forget the Coast to Coast Challenge for all you bi-coastal runners!
It looks like they have revamped the race schedule this year and I think these changes will greatly improve the race experience. The 5K will now be on Friday morning and the 10K on Saturday morning, instead of having both on the same day. Also, there is an extra day for the Health & Fitness Expo that was much needed.
Now brace yourselves for a bit of sticker shock, as prices have increased 10-13% this year depending on the race…yowza! Pricing for the events are as follows:

Great news is that the Disneyland Health and Fitness Expo will begin on Thursday, August 28, 2014 at 2:00 pm at the Disneyland Hotel Exhibit Hall. Hopefully this will help avoid the long lines and congestion of last year’s expo. It seems to have worked for the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend Expo. All runners will need to make a stop here to pick up their race bibs, commemorative items and if you’re anything like me, you’ll want to do a little shopping.
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!
Last year, these races sold out in record time…26 hours to be exact! So you will want to get your fingers and credit cards ready and register TODAY if you want to run in one or all of these races.
I had a blast running the Dumbo Double Dare Challenge last year. The 10K in particular was a GREAT race! I know you’ll enjoy it too! Check out Part 1 and Part 2 of my race recaps to get the full experience 🙂
