Disney just announced a new half marathon, themed to The Avengers, that will take place this November at Disneyland in California. I am not surprised to see this for two reasons. 1) They can’t do this in Florida due to Universal’s licensing of Marvel in that state. 2) Disneyland is in pretty desperate need of another race weekend, given that the Disneyland Half filled in a few hours this year. I don’t think I will make it out there for this one any time soon, but certainly something for the future.
It is very interesting to watch this explosion of races at the Disney Parks. They may end up giving NYRR a run for their money (pun intended on every level).
