Disney marathons have long been popular stateside, with half and full marathons running (get it?) almost every month in the cooler autumn-spring months. This is the first year though that the Disney Marathon concept is coming to Disneyland Paris, kicking off with the inaugural Disneyland Paris half-marathon weekend!
The half-marathon will take place the weekend of the 23-25 September, 2016, and we are hoping it will become an annual occurrence. The route is expected to weave its way around the safety of the park, so this is a great half-marathon to do if you love Disney and want to enjoy the incredible park scenery as you run.
The atmosphere of the run is sure to be fun and light-hearted so anyone, from first-time marathon runners to old-hands who just love Disney and everyone in between, can take part. If you're lucky, you might even be joined on your run by those sneaky park characters who just can’t help getting involved! So if you think you’d benefit from a little motivation from Minnie or a cajoling from Chip or Dale, this could be the event for you.
Best of all, once you've completed the half marathon and collected your medal, you still have all the fun of Disneyland Paris to enjoy. Hit up all the rides and treat yourself to some seriously indulgent Disney dining - let's face it, you've deserved it!
To enter, you’ll need to purchase a bib for the run which can be purchased separately to your regular park tickets. Bibs for the event go on sale tomorrow (February 16th), so make sure you get your Disneyland Paris tickets quick as a flash for the best deal and lots of extra added happiness.
