“The Disneyland Resort will host four fun-filled days of events, featuring some of your favorite Disney Friends. Whether Guests start their day “barking along” a 3.1- mile adventure or “get their ducks in a row” for 6.2 miles … or even say “see ya real soon” as they embark for an epic 13.1 miles, our Disney friends will be there to cheer them on! Even more exciting news for the 2024 event weekend includes a brand-new offering to runDisney events at Disneyland Resort, early morning yoga from inside Disneyland park!

From the start line to the finish line, the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend will ensure that Every Mile is Magic!”

Prices do increase for some events from July 18, 2023 – January 2, 2024. I (Heather) would not expect these prices to go into affect because these races WILL sell out quickly. The 6.6% service fee is not included in these listings. Here are the increases:

  • Disneyland 5K: $118.99
  • Disneyland 10K: $159.00
