Avengers Half Marathon Comes to Disneyland

Disneyland is adding a new half marathon November 14-16, 2014 and it is Marvel Avenger themed. That is fantastic. That is horrible. I want to run the inaugural race but I am running the Dumbo Double Dare just two months before. What am I going to do? Yes, you should be glad you can’t hear my ranting.

Whether I am able to run this race or not it is a fantastic idea. Disneyland is where you can become Iron Man and meet Thor and Captain America. It makes sense to have a race based around these amazing superheroes. Guardians of the Galaxy will be out by then so perhaps they can be added to the event. Disney has been careful to not mix Mickey and Marvel but this is a great way to blend the two.

If you want to run the kids races, the 5k, or the half marathon then mark March 25 on your calendar. That is when registration opens at Noon EST. The Disneyland Half Marathon filled up in 90 minutes. This race is going to be way cooler and the weather should be nice, too, so if you want to participate be prepared to sign up the moment registration opens. I am sure it will be a smashin’ good time! Happiness squared.

Goofy Tip: Do you like running at the Disney parks? Have you not run at the parks yet but want to? Since the races are so popular it is a good idea to stay on top of the news.
