The double dare takes place over 2 days; participants will run the Disneyland 10K on Saturday and the Disneyland Half Marathon on Sunday. That’s a total of 19.3 miles over 2 days. If you run for the famed runDisney medals be sure to register for the Dumbo Double Dare to be awarded the special Dumbo Double Dare medal as well as the Half Marathon and 10K finisher medals.

The Half Marathon course map hasn’t been released yet but has historically taken a trail through the Disneyland Park, onto the streets of Anaheim, past the Honda Center, home of the Anaheim Ducks, along the Santa Ana trail overlooking the Santa Ana river, through Angel Stadium, home of the Angels of Anaheim and then onto Disney’s Paradise Pier and to the Disneyland Hotel for a finish. According to runDisney, “Ideal weather and a flat loop course set the stage for an exhilarating Half Marathon designed to shatter personal bests”.

runDisney hosts events coast to coast from a variety of race lengths and themes at Walt Disney World parks to the new Dumbo Double Dare at Disneyland.

The runDisney website offers information and pricing as well as training tips and a training programs of every level with Jeff Galloway.
