Registration opens Tuesday, April 12, 2016 at 12 p.m. ET for the Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend at Disneyland in California from November 10-13, 2016.
The Super Heroes Half Marathon and other weekend races run through Disneyland Resort and the streets of Anaheim with entertainment lining the course, including characters from Marvel’s The Avengers, bands, cheerleaders, and more.
The running homage to The Avengers and all comic book caped crusaders includes the title half-marathon, Doctor Strange 10K, Captain America 5K, runDisney Kids Races, runDisney Health & Fitness Expo, and the Infinity Gauntlet Challenge—running the 10K and half-marathon on consecutive days. 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 and not register for each race individually.
The weekend is the final 2016 event in the runDisney series, and runners’ last chance to earn a Coast to Coast Race Challenge medal by running a half-marathon or marathon at both Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California in the same calendar year.
Disney’s running series now has four race weekends at each Walt Disney World and Disneyland, and the new Disneyland Paris Half Marathon debuting in France in September 2016. Runners who complete the Paris half-marathon and a U.S. half-marathon or marathon in the same year will earn a special Castle to Chateau Challenge medal.
The Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend might also be the last chance to snap up a pair of shoes from the 2016 New Balance runDisney Collection. The kicks inspired by Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, The Little Mermaid and Dumbo are sold exclusively at runDisney Health & Fitness Expos.

Disney sometimes provides me with complimentary attendance at runDisney events. This year, I’m attending the Star Wars Half Marathon-The Dark Side, Tinker Bell Half Marathon, and Disneyland Paris Half Marathon. As always, all opinions are purely mine. I firmly believe in being honest about my experiences. Seriously. For more, read my Disclosure Policy.
