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:
