Who Is Ready To Run In 2018?

October 24, 2017

Do you love to run AND you love Disney? Why not combine the two?

It’s time to lace up those sneakers and sign up for the most magical races around! These races DO SELL OUT! Hurry before they’re all gone!



Unfortunately, due to construction of the 14-acre Star Wars Land: Galaxy’s Edge, Disneyland has cancelled its marathons…for now. Fear not, it is not forever…I am confident that once they do come back, they will be better than ever!

**The cancellations only effect Disneyland and Walt Disney World and Disneyland Paris Marathons will go on as
