Is the Disneyland Half Marathon on your bucket list, whether you’re a runner, Disney lover, or both? If so, register right now to make sure you get a bib! It’s also a good idea to make your Anaheim hotel reservations now for the September event weekend. This race sells out every year, and if you’re planning on running the half, 10k or 5k in September, registering early guarantees you a spot in the Happiest Race on Earth.
This year, the festivities take place September 1-4, and Mickey and Goofy are your hosts. A slew of Disney characters also make appearances, both pre- and post-race as well as along the route. For the half marathon runners, the course takes you right into the heart of Main Street, U.S.A. in the park, then leads you into the Anaheim streets.
A Run for Your Money
Not everyone who attends this beloved Disneyland race is a runner. Spectators outnumber runners by quite a bit! Whether you’re cheering on a loved one or simply want to stop by for the fun, festivities and the food, it’s an event you don’t want to miss. Special treats, live entertainment, and photo opportunities abound.
If you’re on the fence, know that 2016 is slated to be the best race yet, with a number of surprises up Mickey’s sleeve to make it extra special.
