runDisney Announces the 2014 Avengers Half Marathon #SmashTheHalf

runDisney will host the Avengers for a 5k and Half Marathon.  And it's going to be held in Disneyland!  Hulk says: #SmashTheHalf!


You know how disappointed I, and many others, were when runDisney  made the change to the Tinker Bell Half Marathon.  I kept saying if they replace Tink with Star Wars, I'd totally forgive them.  Close enough. Who doesn't love a good Super Hero?



I know my comic book loving husband Mr. Shenanigans will be on board with these races.   Will you be joining us?

  1. So, Avengers is the week after W&D? Holy crap, runDisney!

  2. Blah! I was hoping it would replace tink. It's too close to W&D for me to make both, and I really like catching both the Food and Wine Festival and Christmas at Disney. Think this spells the end for W&D???

    1. Hate to be the bearer of bad news but you have to do both races in the same *calendar* year to get the C2C so doing W&D this year and Dopey in 2015 won't get you the C2C

    2. I'm doing Dopey and Avengers next year for C2C.

      This year I did Tink and will be doing W&D for C2C as well.

  4. Love this! Excited that my boys will have a boy-themed race to run this time around. However, I'm SO curious about whether or not the January spot at DL will be filled...??? runDisney is so good at suspense! :) Think this new race will have early AP reg?

  5. The Wine & Dine Festival ends November 10 anyway, so We'll be jetting off November 11 and then turning around to fly to California. The question is, do I get on a plane and fly to Vegas around noon to run in the RnRLV?

  6. Yes! This leaves the door open for a Star Wars race to be put in the TinkerBell January calendar slot.

  7. I'm going to do everything I can to find the money to register for this race! I'm so excited that runDisney is giving the west coast some more love! Plus, I love the Avengers! This might be the race I make an annual thing. Of course, if they add a Star Wars themed race out here as well in January, I'll have some tough decisions to make. For now, I'm just happy to know that there are 3 runDisney races in my area to choose from.

  8. I've been so over Disney, now they pull this! OY!
    Registration is on a Tuesday, so I'll be at work. I can't play Black Friday and sit in front of my computer refreshing my screen until the race opens. If it sells out before I get home, that may be that. I expect another $200 registration fee, so the few weeks leading up to it may make me rethink doing it, but I'm definitely leaning towards it.

  9. My BFF is Avengers obsessed, so I'll be there! I'm still trying to figure out how to budget for Wine & Dine, Avengers, and Marathon weekend though. Register now and figure out the finances later? ;)
