The 2024-25 runDisney Race Season Kicks Off with the NEW Halloween-Themed Race at Disneyland Resort!

Disneyland Resort is introducing a brand-new Halloween-themed race weekend that promises to be an unforgettable experience. Mark your calendars because the Disneyland Halloween Half Marathon Weekend is set to debut from September 5-8, 2024.

Runners make their way past The Little Mermaid – Ariel’s Undersea Adventure at California Adventure Park at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif., during a previous runDisney event weekend much like the participants will do Sept. 5-8, 2024 at the Disneyland Halloween Half Marathon Weekend. The new Halloween themed race weekend will include kids races, yoga, a 5K, 10K and a half marathon along with a two-race challenge. (Disneyland Resort)

This four-day runDisney race weekend is not just about the races; it’s an immersive Disney experience. From Halloween-themed kids races to yoga sessions, participants can choose from a variety of events including a 5K, 10K, and the highlight – a half marathon. For those seeking an extra challenge, there’s a ghoulish two-race challenge combining the 10K and half marathon.

But what’s a Disney race without a touch of magic? As you lace up your running shoes and hit the track, you’ll be treated to Halloween-themed on-course entertainment. Imagine running alongside your favorite Disney characters, with the enchanting backdrop of the resort’s two theme parks and the scenic Anaheim area. It’s a race experience like no other!
