Run Like a Super Hero! #smashthehalf

runDisney always loves to keep it's runners and fans in suspense. It's part of the novelty and magic. This weekend at the Princess Half Marathon Weekend after party, runners were buzzing about a simple chalk drawing.

What did it mean? Rumors were running rampant and the excitement was in full force for a new runDisney race. The #smashthehalf hashtag from runDisney's twitter page was a clue to the news. People were speculating like crazy. Was their guess right? Could it be? Today the wait was over....

The Inaugural Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend is coming to the Disneyland Resort this fall! This news is a welcomed addition for all west coast runners and for runners looking to earn their Coast to Coast medal!

What are your thoughts on this news? Do you think this is a race you'll be signing up for? I have to say the idea of a new runDisney experience at Disneyland excites me! 


  1. As much as I'd love to go, it won't be in the cards for me this year. Unless a money tree sprouts in my yard this spring - LOL.

    1. If that money tree sprouts up, let me know. I need some of those seeds so I can run all the races! LOL

  2. I really want to do this race! Hopefully one day my husband and I can do it!

    1. It should be a great race Sara! I hope you guys can do it as well!
