10 Reasons Why I Miss Disneyland runDisney Races

reasons why I miss Disneyland runDisney races

I love running. I especially love running at Disney. Whether it is Disneyland or Disney World I have always enjoyed both. My first half marathon ever was years ago at the Disneyland Half Marathon, so runDisney will always have a special place in my heart. Running at Disney World though is a totally different experience than running at Disneyland. runDisney discontinued the west coast races for the time being (hopefully not forever). I know I am not the only person sad about there being no Disneyland races and I thought I would put together a list of the 10 reasons why I miss the Disneyland runDisney races. Here you go:

  1. Being able to WALK to the starting line from my hotel.

  2. Pacific Time Zone. Need I say more?
  3. The car clubs who would come cheer us on. The old car collections were always so amazing. Car clubs cheer on runners at Disneyland Half
  4. Running through California Adventure. running through California Adventure
  5. Did I mention being able to walk to the race from my hotel?
  6. Meeting friends at Trader Sam’s. It just isn’t the same at Disney World.
  7. Carbloading on Disneyland beignets. Again, so much better at Disneyland and yes, I know that Disney World has them at Port Orleans, but they are not nearly as good. kids running
  8. Having the runDisney Kids Races located so conveniently close to the hotels and other race starts and not all the way out at ESPN Wide World of Sports.
  9. Having Disney races only a 45 min plane ride away from me.running through California Adventure
  10. Last, but not least, not having to take a bus to the starting area and being able to walk.
