Tinkerbell Half Marathon....Registration is Open!

Registration for the 2nd Tinkerbell Half Marathon opened up today on the rundisney website. This race was extremely popular this year with 17,000 runners in the inaugural race.  The race weekend starts on January 18th with the Expo at the Disneyland Exhibit Hall.  There you will pick up your race bib and packet, have the opportunity to purchase runDisney merchandise (always fun) and listen to numerous guest speakers on topics such as nutrition, training and other running subjects. 

There are several races over the weekend, the Neverland Fun Run 5K and  kids races that are great for even the youngest competitors.  The 5K and kid races are held on Saturday morning and the half marathon will take place on Sunday where upon completion you will receive a wonderful medal in true Disney style.  Be sure to sign up soon if you wish to participate.  Disney is expecting over 20,000 runners in 2013 for this great event and if you are an east coaster, this is a perfect chance to start off the year right and work towards that coveted Coast to Coast medal.
