After much speculation over the past weeks and months, the much anticipated runDisney announcement about its newest race was made yesterday morning.
This coming November, runDisney will host a third race weekend at Disneyland, the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend. Weekend events will include a half marathon, 5k, and Kids Races. Registration opens on March 25th.
I must admit, I’m not very impressed by the theme of this race, or the time of year its being held. I’m not a huge super heroes fan. The race is also scheduled for the weekend after the Wine and Dine Half Marathon at Disney World, which seems a bit odd given that the Tinkerbell Half Marathon is being moved to May in 2015 instead of continuing to be held in January the weekend after Marathon Weekend at Disney World.
Although I was curious to find out what runDisney had up its sleeve, I wasn’t holding very high expectations after hearing the circulated rumors about future Avengers or Star Wars themed races. Disneyland is much further and much more costly for us to travel to, and traveling to California in mid-November is pretty unrealistic given my school schedule.
But I know that there are huge Avengers fans out there, and if you are one, I’m sure you’re very excited about the newest addition to the runDisney race calendar. And if you thinking about signing up for this race, I hope your wish comes true!
