My husband and I participated in the 2014 Tinker Bell Half, and both our opinions is that this race weekend an absolute blast! The medals are gorgeous and everything is within walking distance (as long as you stay on Disney property or at a Good Neighbor Hotel)!

  4. I would love to run the Pixie Dust Challenge but this year won't be the year. I would also always pick the GSC over Tink any day but that's because the PHM weekend will always hold a special place in my heart :)

    1. Courtney - I totally agree! PHM is a special race for me as well!

  5. I've heard such fantastic things about Tinkerbell. I'm looking forward to my first Disneyland race at StarWars and suspect that Tinkerbell may make it onto my to-do list for some future year!

  6. Awww, cute finisher's pic, Lauren! I loved the 2013 Tinker Bell Half! I'm not doing it in 2015 since my race travel budget will be tapped out from doing the Dopey and the GSC. Maybe 2016? :)

    1. Thanks Denise! :0) Yeah two runDisney races a year are enough to tap out anyone's budget! They get expensive!
