The following day, the Disneyland Paris 10K is dedicated to the Disney Princesses and their determination to follow their dreams. Runners will see them along the route and all finishers take home a medal featuring the courageous Rapunzel and her adorable chameleon Pascal. The Neverland-themed runDisney Kids Races at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday are a chance for kids to take home a medal featuring Peter Pan and friends.
Because love is a big adventure too, the Disneyland Paris – Val d’Europe Half-Marathon (Sunday 22nd September) showcases the beloved Disney film couples. But that’s not all… finishers get to take home a medal featuring the most iconic couple in animation history – Mickey and Minnie Mouse– running through Disneyland Paris.
Last but not least, runners entering the various challenges can make a spectacular addition to their collection with a flying Aladdin on the 31K Challenge medal (10K + Half-Marathon) and the snazzy Genie on the 36K Challenge medal (5K + 10K + Half-Marathon). Obviously, Sleeping Beauty Castle is still the ultimate object of desire for finishers of the Castle to Château Challenge. This medal is only awarded to runners who have completed the Disneyland Paris – Val d’Europe Half-Marathon and a runDisney Marathon or Half- Marathon at Walt Disney World in Florida in the same year.
