Neverland 5k at Disneyland

Neverland 5k at Disneyland

Sarah McClure July 21, 2016 I have been a runner for several years, and when I first heard of the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend at Disneyland, I squealed like a little girl! I couldn’t believe there was a race at Disneyland where you could actually run in the parks, meet characters and get a really cool medal. Thus began my Tinker Bell race journey in 2013. I had full intentions of signing up for the 2014 race, but due to knee and ankle...

My First RunDisney Expo

By: Kristal Tinsler It was February 2013 – and it was my first official runners expo! I had no idea what to expect, it was being held in the Coronado Springs Convention Center, which was also our resort. So, I walked over, and hopped in line with what seemed like hundreds of others! First thing I did, was collect my runner Bibs and then headed to the back for my gear! We got really cute shirts, a T-shirt for the 5k, and a Tech shirt for the...
