2014 runDisney Disneyland Half Weekend

The runDisney Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend is right around the corner. It's crazy to think that I was gEARing up for the Dumbo Double Dare this time last year. I had a blast and know you will too! 

Whether you're a first timer at Disneyland or a runDisney veteran, you'll want to be informed for race weekend. Be to sure read up on the official race guide. It's filled with informative information. I've highlighted some information that'll make your race weekend a success!

Disneyland Health & Fitness Expo-Get your shopping lists ready because shopping a runDisney Expo is like running a race! You'll want to go in prepared to make sure you get everything you need. The expo is also where you pick up your race packet and gEAR. Check out my post for the scoop on last year's expo! The expo is held in the Disneyland Hotel Exhibit Hall. The hours are: 
Thursday, August 28th: Noon to 8:00 pm
Friday, August 29th: 9:00 am to 8:00 pm
Saturday, August 30th: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm

Course Maps:

Dumbo Double Dare: Are you taking the challenge of 19.3 miles over two days? Make sure you read up about the challenge in the official runDisney race guide. After you complete the 10K, you must head over to the Challenge Tent with your DDD Challenge bib in order to receive your 10K Finisher wristband. You must have this wristband in order to get your Dumbo Double Dare Challenge medal after you complete the half marathon. 

Coast to Coast: Are you earning your Coast to Coast Challenge medal? I earned mine last year and it is by far my favorite medal. When you pick up your packet, you should be given your Coast to Coast wristband. You must have this wristband to receive the C2C medal. After you complete the half marathon, be sure to head over to the Challenge Tent to show your wristband and you'll received the coveted Coast to Coast bling. 

I'm so excited for everyone that's running during the runDisney Disneyland Half Marathon weekend. Can't wait to follow along with all the fun during race weekend! Will you be participating in any Disneyland races this year?
