RUMOR: RunDisney Cancels All Future Race Events, Half Marathons at the Disneyland Resort
This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

According to sources, Disney is set to a announce the cancellation of all future RunDisney events at the Disneyland Resort this week due to upcoming construction projects.

The Star Wars Half Marathon – The Light Side was set to happen at the Disneyland Resort in January and has had its registration delayed indefinitely, leading many to believe the event may be cancelled altogether now. Typically, registration for this event opens several months in advance.

The Disneyland Resort typically hosts the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend in May, the Disneyland Half Marathon in August/September, the Super Heroes Half Marathon in November, and Star Wars Half Marathon in January annually. No events beyond The Light Side are even listed on the RunDisney website currently.

Rumors indicate that the events will be cancelled for at least the next two-to-three years while work continues on several large projects for the resort, including a new resort hotel, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, a MARVEL land in California Adventure, and the Eastern Gateway project.

You do realize that most people get out and interact with other humans instead of whatever this is? Decades ago adults lead satisfying lives where they focused on creating a family and leaving a legacy of hard work. Now, man-children like yourself took away behind a bag of Cheetos, making themselves chuckle by typing “first” or pretending to be children’s cartoon characters. All while your parents slowly get old and die knowing that their lineage will end due to the fact that their child will never deletions real social skills or ever turn off his computer for the real world.
