You can run, you can run, you can run, to "earn" your wings on this extraordinary adventure that takes you through Never Land and the spectacular Disneyland® Resort and continues along the historic and colorful streets of Anaheim. Then get set for an incredible storybook finish and your very own Tinker Bell inspired finisher medal.
