If you didn’t get a chance to run in the wildly popular inaugural Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend last year at Disneyland Resort, now is your chance to get in on the fun. Registration for the 2013 race is now open at

Last year’s race sold out quickly, with more than 17,000 runners registering for the various events during the weekend, all of which are geared toward women. Kellie Nickerson of New Mexico won the inaugural race, which also featured a few celebrities, such as Megyn Price (“Rules of Engagement”) and Sean Astin (“Lord of the Rings” and “Rudy”).

The second annual event should be just as entertaining. In addition to running through Disneyland park, Disney California Adventure park and the streets of Anaheim, runners will also get to run through the new Cars Land at Disney California Adventure park. Like all runDisney events, the 2013 Tinker Bell Half Marathon will feature events for the entire family, plus music, entertainment and beloved Disney characters along the 13.1 mile course. The reward at the end is a coveted Tinker Bell medal with its own set of “wings”.

  • I have that same question. My son is 10 and wanted to run but I dont see any kids race for his age group. Is there not going to be one this time? He will be so bumed 🙁

  • I’m registered! It will be my first half 🙂

    Was the 1 mile race eliminated? My son wants to run but I can’t find a spot to register for that one, and I no longer see it listed on the schedule. I’d love to figure out if it’s happening it not so I can register him for the 400 meter dash if that’s his only option.

  • Just registered!!!! I cant wait, my first Half marathon with my fave Disney character in my fave place!! Its going to be awesome!!
