This past weekend, dreams came true as runners crossed the finish line at Disneyland Paris Half Marathon Weekend. The race weekend included the runDisney Kids Races, Disneyland Paris 5K, Disneyland Paris 10K and Disneyland Paris – Val d’Europe Half Marathon. Here is a look at some of our favorite moments!

The weekend kicked off under the Parisian night sky as runners took to the streets of Walt Disney Studios Park during the Disneyland Paris 5K. Following the 5K, the park opened its doors for a special runDisney event, which included exclusive access to main attractions, Disney characters, commemorative photo opportunities and a DJ party.

  • Hi there! I am sure you are not the one to answer this, but can you help me?

    Hi there. I just ran DLP the BBB challenge last weekend. I came home to the states and Aer lingus lost my luggage. They cannot find it anywhere. It had my three race shirts in it, and my castle to chateau shirt as well and the bright pink shirt from DLP. I was wondering if there was a way I could get another set of shirts, as I am sooooooo upset they lost my luggage. I had so many sentimental items inside. Do you know who can help me? Thanks in advance!
