Super Heroes, assemble! With the Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend quickly approaching, runDisney is ready to celebrate in epic Super Hero style. For those of you who might be on the fence about whether or not to attend this race weekend, here are just a few reasons why this is one of our favorite runDisney events!


  1. Experience Holidays at Disneyland Resort
 – The most wonderful time of the year just got better! Participants of the Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend will be some of the first to experience Holidays at the Disneyland Resort, beginning November 10. Highlights of this exciting celebration include the new Festival of Holidays and “World of Color – Season of Light,” as well as favorites like Haunted Mansion Holiday and “it’s a small world” Holiday.


  1. Run a Reimagined Course Through Disneyland Resort – We recently revealed this year’s brand-new course to runners that includes more magical miles inside Disneyland Resort! Highlights of this reimagined route include a loop around Paradise Bay with “World of Color” show elements in the background and a race through Grizzly Peak. Best of all, the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon will take runners through Sleeping Beauty Castle for the first time.


  1. Doctor Strange 10K 
- What better way to celebrate the release of Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” than by earning your very own medal inspired by the Eye of Agamotto, a spectacular mystical artifact worn by the Sorcerer Supreme? Runners can also register for the Pasta Party & A Movie experience, featuring a private viewing of Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” at AMC Theatres at Downtown Disney District.

Best of all, spots are still available for the Avengers Super Hero Half Marathon and the Infinity Gauntlet Challenge! There’s still a chance to earn your medal and join the Avengers here! Registration closes October 30, 2016, at noon EST.
