Magical miles at The Happiest Place on Earth are just around the corner as we get closer to the return of runDisney events at the Disneyland Resort with the 2024 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend presented by Honda! Taking place Jan. 11-14, 2024, registered participants will join Mickey Mouse and friends for a memorable race weekend featuring yoga, three different races, one challenge and courses through both theme parks and around the surrounding Anaheim resort district. Add with one-of-a-kind finisher medals and exciting entertainment, like character appearances in the theme parks and live entertainment along the route, it’ll be a can’t-miss weekend full of miles and memories.
Speaking of finisher medals, we’re excited to reveal a first look at the fantastic bling that will be awaiting participants at the finish line. Taking inspiration from the event themes, which celebrate classic, midcentury Disneyland nostalgia, here is a first look at the race weekend’s line-up:
It’s a great start to the race weekend as Pluto joins participants in an un’fur’gettable time for the Disneyland5K. Participants will put one ‘paw’ in front of the other on a fetching 3.1-mile course that’s perfect for the entire family, earning this sliding finisher medal.
Birds of a feather … run 6.2 miles together! Participants joining our fine feathered friends, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck, will fly to the finish line to earn this ‘quack’tastic finisher medal.
OH BOY! Finishing out the magical race weekend are hosts Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, joining participants for the Disneyland Half Marathon. Enjoy a 13.1-mile adventure through the Disneyland Resort and around the surrounding Anaheim resort district before making your way to the finish line to earn this finisher medal.
Don’t just fly to the finish line, SOAR! Participants going the extra mile can look forward to earning even more bling during the Dumbo Double Dare. Participants who finish both the 2024 Disneyland 10K and Disneyland Half Marathon on pace will pick-up this extra special finisher medal.
