Did you sign up for the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon yet? If not, you’re out of luck. The Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon sold out in just under 2 hours today! If you think that was quick, the 5K race sold out in a mere 26 minutes! I was up and ready to register promptly at 9am PDT.
As you can see, I got in pretty quickly. Part of the reason I got in so quickly was that I saw on Facebook, that the registration opened a few minutes early. Once I got in, I followed along on twitter to watch the race fill up. First, the 5K race sold out. Then, later, the Half Marathon…
So, as you can see, the races are now full. That was crazy fast! It looks like the Disneyland races are on a trajectory to sell out faster and faster. Some in the runDisney community wonder how long it will be before the runDisney races turn to a lottery system for their races. There are already many popular marathons that use this system such as the Marine Corp Marathon and the New York City Marathon. So, if runDisney went this route, it wouldn’t be unheard of. Another route runDisney can take is to offer more races…especially here on the West Coast. The rumors of an Avengers themed half marathon at Disneyland that surfaced during the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend turned out to be true. The rumor back then was that runDisney was planning on 2 additional Disneyland races, with the other being a Star Wars theme. Will that happen? Time will tell.
For now, the runners have assembled to sell out the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon at Disneyland. I am so excited for this race that I can’t wait for November to get here! If I like this race course enough, this could be a race I do every year. It’s my first opportunity to be perfect with a half marathon race. For those that wanted to participate in this race, did you get in? If not, there’s always next year. After all, with a race that sells out in less than 2 hours, you just know there will be another one.
