Last month at the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend rumors were flying about the addition of a Star Wars race and/or an Avengers race being added to the race roster at the Disneyland Resort in California.  Social media was a buzz with the use of the hash tag #SmashTheHalf which pointed more to the possibility of a MARVEL race rather than a Star Wars Race. Smash = Hulk

Today runDisney confirmed via their social media channels that there will in fact be a new race coming to the Disneyland Resort this November.

Tinker Bell 10K

In its third year, Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend, hosted by the city of Anaheim and the Disneyland Resort, is scheduled for January 16-19. Earlier this year, more than 21,000 runners (including myself) took part in the women-focused weekend of events centered on health, fitness and active lifestyles.

The new Disney Fairies-themed 10K will be held Saturday, January 18, and builds on the massive popularity of the runDisney series and women-focused events. Tinker Bell 10K finishers will receive a new, specially-designed, fairy-themed medal.

“We’re excited to add the popular 10K distance to Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend,” said Faron Kelley, director of marketing, Disney Sports. “Tinker Bell 10K expands an already exciting series of events, and adds more opportunities for our passionate runners on the west coast, especially those new runners who are stepping up to the 10K distance.”

Along with the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend at Walt Disney World Resort, the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend is one of two women-focused runDisney events. Both races are among the largest women-specific running events in the country and focus on healthy, active lifestyles for women and girls.

Registration for 2014 Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend opens July 9 at 12 pm EST/9 am PST at www.runDisney.com.
