Review of Neverland 5K & Tinkerbell 10K by

Posted by: on January, 21 2014

I think the course for this race earns a A++++. I ran the Neverland 5k with my 2 daughters who are not runners. The course is so fun and delightful that it feels like a party not a run. They shoot fireworks to start the race, the lights are on at Small World, the teacups are spinning, and cast members give you high-fives along the race. The medal is plastic which I find a bit disappointing – but the shirts, bibs, after race snacks are all top of the line. This was my 2nd Disney 5k and both were delightful experiences.
This is a great race for a beginning runner – as it is truly a “fun run”.
If you are a serious runner – be warned – there is no chip timing – and with so many walkers you will probably not get a PR on this 5k. But if you want to have a “magical race” this one will not disappoint!
