Registration for the 2015 Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA from November 12-15, 2015 opens Tuesday, April 7 at 12 p.m. Eastern. In its second year, the runDisney Avengers half marathon will debut the new Captain America 10K and Infinity Gauntlet Challenge—running the 10K and half-marathon on consecutive days—along with the Avengers Super Heroes 5K.

The Avengers half marathon and other races run through Disneyland Resort and the streets of Anaheim with Disney’s signature entertainment lining the course—characters from Marvel’s The Avengers, bands, cheerleaders, and more. Runners who register for the Infinity Gauntlet Challenge will earn a challenge medal in addition to bling for each race. To qualify, you must register for the challenge—not register for each race individually.

The Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend also includes runDisney Kids Races in Downtown Disney, runDisney Health & Fitness Expo at Disneyland Hotel, and a pre-race Pasta in the Park Party inside Disneyland Park on Friday, November 13.

How quickly will the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend events sell out? If the most recent Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon is any indicator, faster than a flash of lightning. The wine-themed half marathon at Walt Disney World sold out in about 30 minutes. The 2014 Avengers half marathon and other weekend events filled up in under 2 hours.

Will the 2015 Avengers half marathon match that?

Disneyland now has four runDisney half-marathons to Walt Disney World’s three. That might mean the Avengers half marathon could have a lower level of demand than Wine & Dine half, especially among runners gunning for their Coast to Coast Race Challenge Medal, which participants earn for running a half-marathon or marathon at both Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California.

But runDisney fans in the know don’t usually dawdle when it comes to signing-up for their favorite event. You never know how quickly these events will sell out.

Registration opens April 7, 2015 at 12 p.m. Eastern. For more information or to register visit runDisney.com.
