Propelled by pixie dust, more than 27,500 runners – including nearly 14,000 from California – are participating in the 6th annual Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend presented by PANDORA Jewelry at Disneyland Resort while celebrating Mothers’ Day weekend. Runners will soar along the 13.1-mile Tinker Bell half marathon course, which takes participants throughout the Disneyland Resort area and the streets of Anaheim. This year, nearly 5,000 runners will spread their wings and fly in the Pixie Dust Challenge by running the 10K on Saturday and the half marathon on Sunday.
The Tinker Bell Half Marathon, one of four races held at the Disneyland Resort, is one of the top women-focused race weekends in the country.
