2014 Avengers Half Marathon Registration

Today at 12 PM EST, registration opens to the public for the 2014 inaugural runDisney Avengers Half Marathon weekend. This race weekend takes place November 14-16 2014 at Disneyland, California for the very first time! I’m rather excited for runDisney to reveal the medal for this race, not gonna lie.

Based on the history of Disneyland races, the 5K and half marathon will both probably sell out quickly. Robert and I won’t be participating this year, but we have definitely added it to our 2015 race calendar! Tomorrow I plan on sitting back and watching just how fast it sells out – my guess is within an hour or two.

  1. My guess is a couple hours as well. I'll watch the boards and FB to see how fast it goes, but this is a race I'm not interested in. The price hurts too :-/

    1. I cannot believe how fast the 5K sold out...26 minutes! Craziness!

      Yeah, the price isn't ideal but it won't deter many people... I definitely still want to run this race lol!

  4. I want to run this but it is so close to Wine & Dine that it is definitely out for this year. Hopefully in the next couple of years I'll get out there to run it but the prices are already so high and I know it is just going to keep increasing... ouch!!

    1. Wine & Dine for us this year too... need that Coast to Coast medal! I can't believe how much the prices seem to increase each year... even the Dopey challenge price increased by like $35 from 2014 to 2015. I hope they take the bloggers advice for improvements who ran this year for next year's races!

  6. Haven't heard of this one before, but I can see how it will likely draw some large crowds. Disney sure is getting into every aspect theme of running:)

    1. They really do! I can't believe how fast the races sold out, too. The 5K took 26 min and the half took a little under 2 hours!
