Whether you're new to running
and looking for a great goal, have been running for a while but are in need of a fun first race, or haven't quite yet found the half-marathon of your dreams, then we have a very strong suggestion for you: Sign up for a runDisney
race. Sweating your face off, gasping for air, and pounding the pavement for 13.1 (or more) miles is not most people's definition of "fun," but the Disney parks
have found so many ways to make it magical. And if you're going to be purple in the face from hours of cardio, why not do it in costume at a magical resort destination
The easy-paced, non-competitive, ideal-for-groups-and-families event takes the stress out of an organized race and transforms it into a memorable experience. You might just forget about the fact that your feet feel like they're wrapped in cement rather than glass slippers. Ahead are 13.1 reasons why a runDisney race should be your first half-marathon — or at the very least on your race bucket list.
