This year’s sold-out half marathon field includes runners ages 14 – 78 from all 50 states and 19 countries.  While all finishers receive a Disneyland Half Marathon medal, more than 2,800 who ran a runDisney race at Walt Disney World Resort earlier this year, will qualify to receive a second medal – the runDisney Coast to Coast Race Challenge medal.
