RunDisney 5k event there is.
Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend at Disneyland and it gives runners a 3.1 mile journey through the parks at early morning light. Plus Tinker Bell flies. AND the announcers arrrgggggghhhh really awesome!
Last year's Neverland 5k was the first event I announced inside DisneyLand. I loved being dressed up as a gorgeous fairy.
The 2013 version of Neverland set Rudy and I up as pirates who were helping Peter Pan escape from Captain Hook.
Once the runners took off in front of the castle, we met them at the finish line which was inside Disney's California Adventure at Paradise Pier.

As Rudy and I were welcoming the over 4,500 runners across the finish line, I spotted a gentleman on his knee. I screamed, "Oh look a proposal!" I guess I wasn't the only one excited by the romantic moment. Check out this epic photobomb captured by our Disney photographer. It went viral and I think you can see why.
Love and eye patches,
Carissa & Kyle
