runDisney(land Paris): First Disney Running Weekend Coming to Europe

Disneyland Paris announced today (Sunday 22 February 2015) that the popular runDisney event will be coming to Disneyland Paris in September 2016.

In a post on the official Disneyland Paris Facebook account, the rumoured event was finally let out of the bag:

On your marks, set...GO!!!
On your marks, set…GO!!!

It’s official! We’re delighted to announce that we’ll be holding our first ever running weekend from September 23rd to 25th 2016, guaranteeing some sportingly good fun for young and old alike! It’s time to dust off those running shoes and get training! #disneylandparishalf 

With the event still over 18 months away registration signups are not yet live, however, Disneyland Paris is asking people to register interest at http://run.disneylandparis.com/.  With the event being a weekend event, and Disneyland Paris stating the main event is a half marathon, it’s expected that Saturday 24th September 2016 will be a 10k run, with the half marathon being on Sunday 25th September.

Whilst you are unable to register as a runner just yet, you actually are able to book your accommodation package for September 2016 through Disneyland Paris’s website, which usually falls outside of their usual booking timescales.
