Course

It's the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend at the Disneyland® Resort, hosted by Tinker Bell and everyone's favorite Never Land characters. View the course to see all the excitement heading your way during the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend.


Half Marathon Course Description


The course for this race is packed with pixie dust, beginning on Disneyland Drive where runners pass under Downtown Disney® on their way into Disneyland® Park. While passing the home of Tinker Bell and her pixie pals at Pixie Hollow, the race continues with a loop around Fantasyland, through Sleeping Beauty Castle, and over to the Rivers of America. Next flying down Main Street U.S.A., it's off to Disney California Adventure® Park, where racers flitter through each land on their way into the City of Anaheim. Enchanting historic neighborhoods of downtown Anaheim, the new and modern Anaheim Center Street Promenade, and the sights of the town are an ever-entertaining backdrop before it's back to the Disneyland® Resort for the "Fairy"-tale finish near Downtown Disney®.


10K Course Description


The course for this race is full of adventure and begins on Disneyland Drive where runners get their first mile on the city streets of Anaheim before flying into Disneyland® Park and getting a peek backstage, arriving at Mickey's Toontown. While running through Disneyland® Park, participants experience Fantasyland and King Arthur's Carrousel, Sleeping Beauty Castle and rootin' tootin' Frontierland, 999 happy haunts of Haunted Mansion, treacherous jungles of Adventureland, and a touch of Tomorrowland before reaching turn of the century Main Street, U.S.A.. Next, it's off to Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure® Park, a cruise through Cars Land and shrinking teeny tiny in A Bug's Land, then winding around the glistening bay of Paradise Pier and into Downtown Disney®. Upon completion of the flight and landing at the finish line, runners finally receive a medal fit for a pixie.


5K Course Description


Tinker Bell will kick off the weekend adventure with a 5K fun run that features Peter Pan, Captain Hook and his band of pirates. Runners will journey through Never Land and the Disneyland® Resort. Adults, teens and tweens can take part in this warm up run during the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend. Just follow the "second star to the right and straight on till morning!"
