Disneyland announces 10k!!

Run Disney just announced that it was adding a 10k to its repertoire of races for the Disneyland Half Marathon weekend, which will take place August 30th-September 1st, 2013.  It will still include the half marathon, 5k fun run and kids races.

The 10k will take place on Saturday, August 31st at 6:15 and will wind through Cars Land in California Adventure Park, Disneyland Park and the streets of Anaheim.  From the promotional information released today, it looks like it may have a bit of an Alice in Wonderland theme which is music to my ears - that is one of my favorite Disney films! 

AND the best part is that they've combined the 10k and half marathon into a Goofy-esque challenge called the Dumbo Double Dare.  It also includes a third medal - Dumbo!

Sounds pretty fun, eh?  Are you in??  You can sign up for the registration reminder email here.  Registration opens Tuesday, January 22nd.  We are - this is my C2C year and I couldn't be more excited that I'll get to run an inaugural race as part of it!



  1. I'm so totally in! This has me way more excited than Goofy Challenge...which may be because after Goofy, this looks a lot easier! I can't wait. :)

  2. We're already planning for 2014 - Goofy + Dumbo = 7 medals!

    1. That is Pam's plan for Princess and Wine &Dine

  3. I want to do this one a lot! I love Disney races so much, but I've never done one in CA! This Challenge is so perfect; I'd love to figure out a way to convince my husband that it's a necessity!
