Neverland Family Fun Run 5k

If you asked me to pick the best location of any RunDisney race then I would choose the Neverland Family Fun Run 5k.  Hands down.

The race starts right on Main Street USA and if you're lucky then you might spot Tinker Bell flying through the sky!
The night before the race, Rudy and I were at the Magic Kingdom for an overnight rehearsal.  Ever sat on a double decker bus at midnight in the Magic Kingdom?  Pretty cool. Yeah, I like my job.
Although I may have had a little nap on the bus prior to our final show run through.  Jet lag is no joke.
The Neverland Family Fun Run 5k was the first race of 3 at the Tinker Bell Half Marathon weekend.  The 5k was on Friday, the newly added 10k was Saturday am, and the half marathon was Sunday morning.  The fun run is an untimed event that's perfect for families and first time 5kers.
The Disneyland entertainment team always does an AMAZING job of creating costumes and stories for the family fun run. I've been a fairy, car mechanic, and Tweedle.  This year Rudy and I were dressed in our "London Best" as we were set to meet the Darling family after the race.
After the runners run through Disneyland, they enter Disney California Adventure, pass through Carsland, and around the lagoon with the World of Color lights on before meeting Rudy and I at the Finish Line.
I have yet to see World of Color during a Disneyland trip, but the lights and water are breathtaking at this race.

If you're thinking about a West Coast RunDisney race, think about next year's Neverland 5k.

What's the best race location you've ever run at?
How far would you travel for a race?

Love and 'hello darling',

  1. My favorite race location so far was Regents Park in London! I ran a charity race there last May and while it was just a 5k, it was really fun because the runners were provided Superhero Costumes instead of a race shirt! Of course the destination did not hurt,not to mention that I was on vacation with my husband and good friends in London!

  2. ok Ive run ONE IN MY LIFETIME---but would LOVE to do the GREAT WALL OF CHINA marathon!!!

  3. haha the costumes are the best!
