Will There be a 10K at the Tinkerbell Half in 2014?

Dear runDisney, please stop toying with us and just announce already if there is going to be a 10K and new challenge during the Tinkerbell Half Marathon weekend next year!

Thanks to some impressive investigating by Kim HERE, it appears Active gave away a bit too much information (see below picture) – there is an option to purchase 10K commemorative items. However, I think they noticed that they teased enough people their mistake and promptly took this information off their website.

I’m crossing my fingers that an announcement is in the near future (I guess it would have to be since registration opens up in less than a month)! I would love more than anything to get the chance to run an inaugural race!

QOTD: Will you be running at Disneyland for the Tinkerbell Half Marathon weekend next year? Are you hoping for a 10K and added challenge?

  1. I think it's funny that Active let it slip, but why doesn't RunDisney just announce it already? Hope it comes to pass so you can run it!!

    3. LOL WOW!! They aren't even trying to hide it anymore... time to make the 'official' announcement! Any thoughts on what they will name the 10K and new challenge?

    4. Maybe runDisney is trying to build anticipation? lol. I'm not sure what they'll name it. I hope they stick to the Tink/Peter Pan theme, as opposed to Tink and her fairy friends. Granted, it is a women's oriented race, so you never know. I just hope they keep the medal the same for the half- I really like it! :) What do you think?

    5. I'm 100% with you, I want them to stick to the Tink/Peter pan theme as well, but definitely NOT the other fairies lol. I think a Captain Hook or Lost Boys 10K would be fun... and for the challenge... Second Star to the right and straight on for 19.3 miles? haha!

  3. I don't know if they will have a challenge since there is no pin listed for such a thing. Just my thought
