First off, let me say Disney knows how to throw a first rate race!
They've thought of everything and the whole process is smooth.
We arrived the night before and headed to the Disneyland Hotel for packet pickup
There were employees and volunteers everywhere to help guide us, each with a huge smile!
The Disney shuttle was free for the weekend and it stops at all "good neighbor hotels"
The race started at 5:45AM complete with fireworks and Tinkerbell flying above the castle.
The Disneyland trumpeter played the national anthem with all of us singing to it.
Seriously magical stuff ;)
Here's the course map:
Characters were out, employees were out to cheer us on.
At each mile marker was a clock and water at the halfway point.
We got to run backstage where they house Christmas floats and ride pieces they're working on.
He ran also got to run through the new Cars Land! SO AWESOME!
Our families were waiting at the finish line where we got out medals!
We also received a "treat box" and water.
My little girl wanted to dress up like a "tiny tinkerbell" since I got to be a "big tinkerbell"
Best run ever! Thank you Disney!
