runDisney Tinker Bell Registration Opens Tomorrow July 9

Now that runDisney has added a 10k to the mix at Tinker Bell Half Marathon in January, is anyone rethinking their game plan?  I don’t normally run the 5ks at the race weekends, but now that there is a 10k it is very tempting to me to run all 3 races.  Here is the weekend schedule:

Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend Expo
Disneyland Hotel Exhibit Hall
2:00 p.m – 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 16, 2014
11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. on Friday, January 17, 2014
9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 18, 2014

Never Land Family Fun Run 5K
Disneyland Resort 
5:45 a.m. on Friday, January 17, 2014

Tinker Bell 10K
Disneyland Resort 
6:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 18, 2014

runDisney Kids Races
Simba Parking Lot near the Downtown Disney District
9:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 18, 2014

Pasta in the Park Party
Magic Kingdom Ballroom, Disneyland Hotel
6:00 – 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 18, 2014

Tinker Bell Half Marathon
Disneyland Resort and the City of Anaheim
5:00 a.m. on Sunday, January 19, 2014
Keep in mind that last year this race sold out really fast and what we have been seeing is that the runDisney races have been selling out faster and faster every race, especially the ones that take place at Disneyland.  If you want to run any of the races I would register ASAP and not wait.  Registration opens at noon eastern time, 9am pacific.

Here is the link to Tinker Bell Info and Registration.

My daughter has ran the runDisney kids races at all the events since she was 18 months.  In my opinion it is money well spent.  Here is my post on the runDisney kids races: What to expect with runDisney Kids Races

Here is my post and the video about the Tinker Bell 10k announcement: runDisney Officially Announces Tinker Bell 10k

The next question is what to wear for the Tinker Bell Half Marathon, 10k and 5k?  I already have a few ideas up my sleeve.  Here is what I wore last year.


Are you planning to run one of the Tinker Bell events?  Any thoughts on costumes?

    I have not done any of the Disney races but this one seems like it would be so much fun. Definitely want to do the Goofy as well.
