Disneyland Paris Half-Marathon Weekend Announcement!

This past summer, I visited Disneyland Paris for one day during my Adventures by Disney trip.  If you would like to read more about that trip here is the link to my trip report: https://marywdw.wordpress.com/category/abd-france-trip/ 


But, during this past weekend’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend, Disney announced that there will be a half marathon weekend in Disneyland Paris in 2016!  September 23rd-25th are the exact dates and if you go to this link you can sign up to receive more information once it comes out: http://run.disneylandparis.com

I am extremely excited by this announcement.  At first, I was happy to see the announcement, but figured it would probably be unlikely I would get back to Paris.  BUT, then I looked closer at the dates!  2016…I am planning on studying abroad in England in Fall 2016!!  Which means it would be a lot easier and cheaper for me to go to Paris from England compared to going to Paris from the United States.  So running the Disneyland Paris Half is a possibility now!  I can’t wait for new information to be released on the event.  Anyone else excited or thinking about maybe making the trip to run the Inaugural race?

  1. While I’m excited by the announcement, I wish that this race weren’t at the end of September. Being a teacher, its difficult to consider an international trip less than 3 weeks into the school year. But I’m excited for those whose schedules this will work for!

    • Yes, the timing is definitely not ideal for schools. I definitely would not be able to run the race at all if I was not planning on being abroad that semester. I missed a day and a half of school for Tower of Terror last year and I had a lot of work to make up! I wonder why they chose September for the race.

      I love reading your blog by the way! I am hoping to run the Army 10 Miler next fall if everything works out.
