Tinkerbell 10K Announced

Although there have been rumors floating around for awhile about a possible 10K during the Tinkerbell Half Marathon weekend in 2014, runDisney has now made it official! The Tinkerbell 10K will take place Saturday, January 18th, 2014 at 6 AM (the day before the half marathon). Registration for the weekend’s events, which include a 5K, 10K, and half marathon, opens next Tuesday, July 9th at 12 PM ET.

Check out this adorable runDisney video for the official announcement!

With the fantastic news of the 10K, and what is sure to be a gorgeous new medal, comes just one small disappointment for some; there will be no official challenge offered for those who desire to do both the 10K and the half marathon. My only thought as to why runDisney is doing this is to deter people from signing up for both races in hopes that the growing popularity of the 10K race distance will bring in new runners who have yet to experience the magic of running through the Disney parks!

QOTD: Will you be signing up for any of the races during Tinkerbell weekend? Are you excited about the 10K?

  1. I'm sure the early registration for Tink with the PHM was a factor in not adding a challenge- think of all the "upgrades" they would have to deal with. I can only imagine the mess.
    I'll be there for the 5k and half! :)
