runDisney Announces Disneyland 10k!

Looks like everyone's request for more Disneyland races has been answered!  And this time it's a new distance that runDisney hasn't dabbled in before.

The Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend is now going to include a 10k, along with the regular half marathon and 5k races.  As always, Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend is the weekend of Aug 30th - Sept 1st, 2013!

Unlike the un-timed Family Fun Run 5k's, the new 10k will be a timed event and runners will be able to run through Disneyland, California Adventure, and the streets of Anaheim.  And if you're looking for an extra challenge?  Run both the half marathon AND the 10k and qualify for the Dumbo Double Dare, which includes a special finisher medal and participant shirt.  There are limited spots available though for the Dumbo Double Dare so make sure to register as soon as it opens!

“The 10K distance is the third most popular distance for runners next to the 5K and half marathon, so this race weekend will have it all,” said Manager, runDisney Events Kathleen Duran.  “We are excited to continue to add different distance races so runners at every level can experience a runDisney event and run through Disney theme parks.”

Registration opens for all of the races on January 22, 2013.  Last year's half marathon sold out in a little over a month so don't hesitate too long after the 22nd!

    1. Hahaha, yeah. I've been hearing lots of issues with the price. With the price of Goofy, this didn't really surprise me.

  4. Jenn, I am totally doing this... but if I fly across the country(for the second time this year--Tink too!) on a teacher's salary, I want to do the 5k too. It looks like there is 45m to finish the 5k before the 10k start, but does the 5k end at or close to the 10k start line? Do any of your contacts know if this is possible before I sign up for all 3? Thanks :)

    1. I'll see if I can find out the exact details! I do know there are a ton of people that want to do both races so it has to be possible somehow! Will let you know if I hear anything.
