Race with Disney and Stay at Hotels near Disneyland

When you race with Disney, running is a little more magical.


If you need a little training and coaching before you participate in a race, Disney offers training programs designed by Jeff Galloway, a former Olympic athlete and running expert.
For every single race Disney offered, there’s a corresponding training program that will help you get ready and avoid injury.

Upcoming Events

  • For Virtual Running Shorts, you choose your own course. Do up to three 5Ks between June 1st and August 31st, and you could snag three different finisher medals.
  • Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend is a Pixar-themed race featuring Woody and Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story. From August 31 – September 3, there will be a 10K, a half marathon, a kids’ race, and more.
  • November 9-12, 2017 – Super Heroes Half Marathon
  • January 11-14, 2018 - Star Wars Half Marathon

Travel Planning

During a weekend race, plan on making time to visit one of the parks to unwind and celebrate a good run. Disney California Adventure and Disneyland Park offer different experiences, so add both to your agenda for a full Disney getaway.

Anaheim hotels can add on to your perfect trip for a memorable weekend. The best hotels for a Disney marathon are conveniently close to the parks as well as other attractions, such as our lovely hotel.

If you will be participating in Run Disney at Disneyland, make sure to stay with us here at Marriott Anaheim Suites.
