The Disneyland Paris Magic Run Weekend organized by runDisney France will be themed to Disney Villains this year. In the short promo that was released on social media we can spot Jafar, the Evil Queen in her Old Hag form, Cruella de Vil, Captain Hook, the Evil Queen, Maleficent, Dr. Facilier and Donald Duck in his Maleficent costume. The first two editions of the Disneyland Paris Magic Run Weekend did not have a special theme, but it is expected that the villains will return on the medals and alongside the routes in character meet-and-greets.

The Magic Run Weekend last year gave you the ability to buy packages with bibs, stay in a Disney Hotel and gave access to the Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park. Stand-alone bibs will go on sale April 17. The 2018 Disneyland Paris Magic Run Weekend will be held from September 20 until September 23.

This year, there will be three races to run and two challenges to complete. On Friday night, the 5K will go through the Walt Disney Studios Park. On Saturday morning, participants will run the 10K through Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park. Sunday morning is for the ‘runaholics’, where the Val d’Europe Half Marathon will be run through both parks and villages surrounding the resort. There are also the 31K and the 36K challenges, for runners that want to do more races and earn more medals.

All the info can be found at the website of the Disneyland Paris Magic Run Weekend. Do you think these races are worth a trip to the European resort?
