To the finish line … and beyond! The first race weekend of the 2017-2018 runDisney season has come to an end after an exciting set of events at the Disneyland Resort celebrating the wonderful world of Pixar. Runners weren’t toying around with this year’s theme for the 2017 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend and came ready with their rootinest tootinest crews! Take a look at a few of our favorite moments from throughout the weekend:

The Disneyland 5K boasted an ‘incredible’ time for super heroes and runners alike, full of family, celebrating Pixar’s own super family from “The Incredibles.” Participants dashed through the course donning their own super suits for 3.1 miles of epic fun!

Taking a step in the ‘fright’ direction, Disneyland 10K runners had all their ‘screams’ come true during the weekend’s next event celebrating “Monsters, Inc.” Throwing it back to Mike and Sulley’s days at Monsters University, participants felt the spirit of Oozma Kappa the whole race through.

  • My first 5k ever and I had a blast! Rewarded myself with lunch at cove bar and dinner at Carthay Circle. Can’t wait to do it all over again!

  • Had a great time at the Disneyland Half Marathon weekend despite the heat and look forward to more Disneyland races next year. Any idea on when we will get announcements about them? Want to start planning and 2018 will be here before you know it!

  • I already signed up for the SWLS 10k. Are we going to see that race happen or will it be canceled?

  • So when are the runs in 2018 going to happen and how do I sign up?
