The Disneyland Half Marathon, or The Happiest Race on Earth, takes place September 1-4, but registration begins now! This event always sells out, and it’s a bucket list item for a number of runners and spectators alike. Not quite ready for a half? That’s okay—there’s a 5k, 10k, kids run, and it’s a guaranteed blast for spectators, too! Register online now and reserve your space for September. If you frequently travel to LA, or plan to in September, this is one event you can’t miss.
All Anaheim area hotels are convenient to the race, which takes runners through Main Street, U.S.A. in the Disneyland Park before opening onto the streets of Anaheim. Your hosts are Mickey and Goofy, who kick off the event and cheer you on throughout the course. There’s plenty of live entertainment and Disney magic to motivate you to the finish line.
The Good Stuff
It’s Disney, so there’s also an abundance of decadent treats and sweets before, during and after the race. Nothing keeps you on pace better than some of those famous churros, ice cream vendors, and hearty protein-infused sliders waiting at the finish line.
September might seem far in the distance, but it’ll sneak up on you. Up your training now, register, and we’ll see you in the autumn!
