Tinkerbell 10k Announced!

There have been lots of rumors, but now it’s official: the runDisney Tinkerbell 10k is actually happening!

Tink 10k announced

It will be a fairy themed 10k held on Saturday, the day before the tink half marathon.

As if the runDisney series and women-focused events weren’t popular enough, now there is more fun to be had! Tinker Bell 10K finishers will receive a new, specially-designed, fairy-themed medal. I can’t wait to see what it looks like.

Quotes from the wonderful Faron Kelley: “We’re excited to add the popular 10K distance to Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend,Tinker Bell 10K expands an already exciting series of events, and adds more opportunities for our passionate runners on the west coast, especially those new runners who are stepping up to the 10K distance.”MG_1188-640x568

Exciting! Registration for 2014 Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend opens July 9 at 12 pm EST/9 am PST Will you be registering? Did you believe the rumors? What will the medal look like!?!? *Note there will not be a challenge for this event.

  1. Wohoo! One year we need to run ALL of the races.

  2. So tempting!!! Sounds awesome!

  3. Not planning to do the 10k since there is no challenge. I sure would love another half here at DL though. Maybe in April or May…still dreaming of a Star Wars half at Disneyland! 🙂
