Photo 0018

This September is going to be a busy month for races at Disney Parks and Resorts. It will all start off with the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend. That is something y’all know about already.

DL Paris Half Marathon

On September 23 – 25 is the Inaugural Disneyland Paris Half Marathon. Again, you already know about this race as there was much excitement when it was announced.

HKDL 10K Races

On Tuesday, we learned that there will be a Hong Kong Disneyland 10K race weekend!

The first official race to run inside the park!On the mark, get set to join the Hong Kong Disneyland 10K Weekend – Presented by AIA Vitality. Happening on 10 and 11 September, the theme park will present a series of exciting races and family running theme activities. Athletes can run through the theme lands of Hong Kong Disneyland for the very first time in the 3K, 5K and 10K races, and have your camera ready as your favorite Disney friends will be cheering you on and welcome any photo opportunities with you to commemorate this magical experience!

So, on September 10 and 11, one weekend after the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend, Hong Kong Disneyland is getting into the running weekends. As you see in the quote from the web site, this is NOT a half marathon weekend. They are offering a 10K, 5K, and 3K race. Here are the details…

Check this out…

Limited edition commemorative souvenir

Exclusive event mementos will be available from for event participants from May 28 on the dedicated event enrollment web page. Participants can choose from a range of limited edition merchandise created specially for “Hong Kong Disneyland 10K Weekend – Presented by AIA Vitality”. From apparels to caps, water bottles, towels and Disney trading pins, runners can build their own collections while stock lasts, to proudly commemorate their participation in the magical and health-enhancing event. Only limited items and quantities are available on the event day.

They will be selling merchandise online BEFORE the event! Hey runDisney…you could learn something from this race. I love this idea! Also, notice that your race fee includes a 1 day park ticket! Imagine that!

It should be noted that this is NOT a runDisney race, though. If you want more information about this race, click here for the event web site. The sponsor for this race is AIA Vitality. For more information about them, visit their web site. What do you guys think about this race? I’m a little surprised that runDisney is NOT involved with the event. I wonder how long that will last. Anyways, registration opens this week (May 28th). Links are on the event web page.

  1. Agggh, I’m in Hong Kong in August, if I’d known I might have moved things a tad – especially as my trip to Paris may have to be cancelled. Maybe next year…I’m likely to be in HK around that time next year.

    I have enrolled in this event and am very excited about it! It is my first time ever to enroll into any run and I feel so motivated! My only question is why it is not part of the runDisney runs? It appears to me that all other runs around the world are hosted by runDisney and wonder why this is different.
