Review of Disneyland Half Marathon by Gregg Condon

Posted by: on January, 8 2013

This was my third year doing the Disneyland 1/2 Marathon and as always Disney puts on one of the top events, at least out of events I’ve run.
This year I did notice a couple of on-course improvements (classic cars along a pretty boring stretch of the course) but also some big downgrades post race (boxes of crackers and snacks instead of the standard bagels, bananas, etc). For the cost that Disney charges it seems a shame they would go the cheap route.
After seeing the jacked-up prices for the 2013 event I’m not sure I’ll be doing this event again, I will probably come back for the 10th anniversary though and get a unique medal unlike the last 2 years.
