Ooh La La! It’s Medal Monday and Disney Parks just gave us the first look at the 2017 Disneyland Paris Half Marathon medals. Last year was the inaugural year and runners gushed about how much they loved the 2016 Disneyland Paris Half. I heard nothing but positive feedback from runners who paid the pretty penny for this Run Disney Experience.
This year, they’ve added a new 10k course to the race weekend. That means there is a Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo Challenge! Runners who complete both the 10K and half marathon will receive a third medal, which features Cinderella’s Coach and the Fairy Godmother.
The Castle to Château Challenge is back for runners who run a US Run Disney race and complete the Disneyland Paris Half Marathon. You must complete both races in the same calendar year to qualify for the special medal.
It’s also the 25th anniversary of Disneyland Paris. Runners can enjoy the limited edition anniversary merchandise, food and park offerings on race weekend.
These photos might be the perfect excuse to jump the pond and earn the 2017 Disneyland Paris Half Marathon medals!
I adore the spinning pumpkin on the Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo Challenge medal! Plus, notice the 25th anniversary details around Sleeping Beauty’s castle on the 10k design.
This race weekend is definitely on my bucket list! I’m sure it’s extra magical this year. To learn more about signing up for the race weekend, visit run.disneylandparis.com. Photos ©Disney.
