Disneyland Paris Half Marathon.....Parlez - Vous Francais?

Is anyone else dying for runDisney to schedule a half marathon across the Atlantic at Disneyland Paris?  It would be fun for them to offer a special race there and to include the option of a dual continent medal, similar to the Coast to Coast.  I can only imagine what those creative designers at runDisney could come up with for a medal, particularly since both countries have red, white and blue in their flag colors.

Park Entrance...circa 1997
Disneyland Paris is located approximately 20 miles from central Paris and consists of two theme parks and seven Disney owned hotels.  When the first park opened in April of 1992, it was called Euro Disney resort.  It was renamed in 1994 to Disneyland Paris.  The second park, called Walt Disney Studios Park, was opened in March of 2002.

During August of 1997, we were fortunate to be able to visit the park during a trip to Paris.  After visiting numerous historical sights and museums for over a week, we were thrilled to have a day at a Disney park, especially one so far from home!  It was time to have a relaxing day and we enjoyed seeing our favorite characters in a new park.

Come on runDisney schedule a race in France - Christine and I will be the first to sign up!

  8. Just googled to find any info on this since I just filled out a runDisney survey asking if I would be interested in one there for $70USD reg fee. Of course I said YES!

    Keep your eyes peeled they are thinking fall 2014 or so said the survey.
