This spring, we shared exciting news that new Super Heroes, such as the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange, would be a part of the theming of the Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend at Disneyland Resort. We’re now thrilled to announce another heroic addition to this year’s race that is certain to delight runners – more magical miles inside the Disneyland Resort!
At Disney California Adventure park, many runners in the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon race can now watch the sunrise over Cars Land, a breathtaking view that transports you to the heart of Radiator Springs.
Runners can also put their Super Hero skills to the test with a fun loop around Paradise Bay with the “World of Color” fountains dancing in the background, a dash through Grizzly Peak and a stroll down Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood Land.
And at Disneyland park, the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon course will go through Sleeping Beauty Castle for the first time. Runners will also chart a path for Tomorrowland before navigating towards “it’s a small world,” which will be aglow with sparkling holiday lights, concluding with a trot through Mickey’s Toontown.
But before runners hit the streets of Anaheim to experience an all-new city course that includes runs through Angel Stadium, runners will get a quick peek backstage to get a glimpse of where the Disney magic happens. Super Heroes will also be out in force to cheer runners on along the 13.1-mile course.
And if that wasn’t enough, runners can also register for the Pasta Party & A Movie experience. It includes a special viewing of Marvel Studio’s “Doctor Strange” at the AMC Theatres at Downtown Disney District before the delicious pasta buffet dinner, which will be held at the Disneyland Hotel for the first time. Music, entertainment, special gifts and commemorative photo opportunities make this a can’t-miss opportunity for Marvel fans!
With a new course and new themes for this year’s Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend, there is so much to get excited about! If you haven’t registered yet, there’s still time to join Earth’s Mightiest Heroes! Registration is still open.
