Changes to Disneyland Races for 2017


Heads up, runDisney fans!

If you thought waking up for races were tough before, they just got a little bit harder.

runDisney just updated the race start times for all races at the Disneyland Half & Super Heroes weekends.

ALL races, 5K, 10K  and Half Marathons, will be starting at 5 am.


This IS a change from previous races, so please be sure to make note of the earlier start time.

No one wants to miss out on a race they trained, traveled and paid for, amirite?!

Pros: you’ll run without the sun a bit longer, which is helpful during the Disneyland Half especially.

And you’ll get to the parks just that much sooner, which is helpful to refuel your rungry bodies with a beignet or two.

And here’s the most shocking part of this post:

No reason was given for the change at this time.

Oh there’s a big surprise! -Iago

    I thought they always had the time for the Kid’s Races on the site and now that is missing, too.

  2. Um, the Iago is PERFECTION.

    The 5 AM on the other hand, I am NOT team morning. Haha. But, I do appreciate less sunshine.

  3. Thanks for the heads up!

  4. Maybe it had something to do with the lawsuits and the delay in registration for the Star Wars race in January.

  5. Nina Reed says:

    I LOVE IT!! I like running when it’s still dark, it’s cooler and makes me run faster to catch all the Disney wall projections for each race. Love seeing all the lights on in the attractions. This is great news to ME 🙋🏻. Thanks RunDisney!

    Especially for the Disneyland HM, an extra half-hour of cool weather is appreciated!
