OMG! Disneyland Paris Half Marathon!


The detailed information for the Disneyland® Paris Half Marathon is finally starting to arrive! We are so excited about this race and hopefully everything will work out for us to attend. Here are the details that I’ve been able to find from runDisney, travel agents, and social media.

Disneyland® Paris Half Marathon – September 23-25, 2016 (that’s only 454 days away!)

The inaugural Disneyland® Paris Half Marathon Weekend includes a magical course through Disneyland Paris and the French countryside!  At Walt Disney Studios® Park, you’ll run down Hollywood Boulevard, and past the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. At Disneyland® Park, you’ll run through Main Street, U.S.A., past Sleeping Beauty Castle, and then through the countryside and villages that surround the Disney Parks, circle back to Disney Village en route to the finish line for a victory celebration and your exclusive inaugural Disneyland® Paris Half Marathon Finisher Medal.

It sounds like your best bet for registering for the race is to go through the runDisney Travel Provider Program which will open up for “package registration” on October 6th. My understanding is that this will include something like race entry, hotel room stay, and park tickets all in one package. According to one travel agent, there may also be several add-ons such as tour trips to Paris.

  • Package Registration will start on October 6th, 2015
  • Limited race registrations are scheduled to start on January 12, 2016 for individual registrations.

And there will be parties!

On Friday evening, September 23, there will be a private party in Walt Disney Studios Park® with Disney characters, attractions, food and drinks. On Saturday evening, September 24, runners will be invited to a performance of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. Hmm…maybe these parties will be included with the registration fee?

This all sounds very exciting!! You can sign up to stay informed on the Disneyland® Paris Half Marathon by registering your email here:
