ANAHEIM, Calif., Oct. 30, 2023 – Attention, runners and Disney enthusiasts alike! Get ready for a thrilling new addition to the Disneyland calendar as the resort unveils the inaugural Disneyland Halloween Half Marathon Weekend, set to launch next year.
Scheduled for September 5-8, 2024, this spooktacular four-day race extravaganza at The Happiest Place on Earth promises not only running events but also some Halloween magic. Participants can look forward to a range of activities including Halloween-themed children’s races, rejuvenating yoga sessions, a 5K, a 10K, and of course, the much-anticipated half marathon. And for those seeking an added challenge, there’s a two-race combination of the 10K and the half marathon to test their mettle.
