runDisney: Disneyland Canceled

Today the run Disney website had a bit of a makeover, and you can see that all the Disneyland events have been removed off for 2018. Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend for 2017 is the last event to happen at Disneyland.

Since runDisney didn’t open up registration for the upcoming Disneyland events, I think its safe to say we all got the sense that something like this was going to happen. Disney did confirm after they pulled the races off that it is due to the expansion of Disneyland why they decided to put the Disneyland events on a hiatus.

If I am honest, I’m saddened by this hiatus because I was on my way of getting my Legacy medal and another c2c. I am hoping they will honor my Legacy and once the races start up again, I will be back on track for that bling. I do, however (feeling’s aside) think it was smart on Disney’s behalf to put the races on a hiatus during construction. It would have been very chaotic, and people would complain even more if they had to cut back on some stuff or the course wasn’t in the parks as much as before.

runDisney: Hong Kong Marvel 10k

I still can’t fully wrap my head around this…not only did i just find out about Hong Kong having a race weekend and that its Marvel themed but to blow my mind even more this isn’t their inaugural race weekend its the second race weekend with a 5k and 10k.

Marvel 10k weekend 2017 begins September 16-17. Runners will make their way through  seven themed lands of the park as they run for the Captain America 10k and Thor 5k. There will also be a 3k and of course everyones favorite Kid Races that will go on as well.

Runners will collect a Marvel running pack that includes as event T-Shirt, race bibs and other items as well. There will be limited edition merchandise special to the vent and of course the amazing medals that wait for us at the finish line. To make the race a bit more interesting the top 3 runners will be awarded with a one night stay at one of the resorts hotel or a dinner buffet as well as  Captain America accessories.

Just like all the runDisney events the cause for this run will be making a difference for people in need as voluntEARS and volunteers from Chow Tai Fook help raise support and awareness of the Hong Kong Association for Cleft lip and palate. Runners you only have until July 31 to make up your mind if you will be joining Captain America and Thor race weekend. Will you join?

Since i love dogs and this run is dedicated to our four legged pups and its Disney i knew i had to sign up for the Virtual Run Series so i can get 4 medals, Coolcore towel and for those furry friends a collapsable dog bowl, and dogs tags. Plus its a charity event donation go to Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando!

16003114_10206008354128264_534934370330780583_nUnfortunately since one of my pups has a broken paw, she won’t be able to run until 6 more weeks, so my running partner will be my little pup. No worries, Belle will be doing some Doga with me so she won’t feel left out.

runDisney: Virtual Running Shorts Take 2!

My all time FAVORITE runDisney event is back for another take with some paw-tific news!

If this is your first time hearing of the Virtual Running Series let me fill you in: The series includes three 5k’s to complete. Participants will receive a medal for each 5k completed plus a challenge medal if you complete all three 5k’s.

The best part is you can choose your course and who your run with, my personal favorite is a trail by my house and i love to bring my pups on the run! Its great bonding with them along with perfect exercise for the both of us.

Race sales begin April 11, 2017 so be sure to mark those calendars, this also is a great way to start in training for Disneyland, Walt Disney World or Disneyland Paris races plus with this training you get to start your medal collection or you add to them!

The charity for this run is Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando which will be celebrating 80 years of saving pets in central Florida. Now the proceeds of the race don’t go to the charity but if you can, you have the option to donate a little extra to the foundation.

Will you be participating in the shorts? Let me know in the comments below!

20 years of half marathons is insane, just like the Goofy Challenge or the Dopey challenge! But whatever run we do we can always count and agree that its the most magical run ever! If the miles weren’t magical already Disney has decided to step up their magic game and added a lot of 20th anniversary surprises along with special anniversary t-shirts and commemorative finisher medals.

So are you running this weekend? Let me know in the comments below your runDisney experience.
