Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend Medal Reveal!

RunDisney fans have been asking for weeks and they have finally been unveiled.  Behold the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend medals for 2016!
Are you going to be earning these beauties? (runDisney)
The theme this year is famous Disney duos who you will see gracing each of these medals - Timon and Pumba (Kids Races), Country Bears (5k), Aladdin and the Genie (10k), and Mickey and Pluto (Half Marathon).  And guess what!  Bonus surprise!  A redesign of the Dumbo Double Dare medal!

Typically, runDisney will make a big splash for anniversary races complete with anniversary medal and then we may get a redesign the next year.  2015 was the 10th anniversary of the Disneyland Half Marathon and 2017 will mark the 5th anniversary for Dumbo (yet another new medal design in store)???

I have to say that I love the combination of the classic half marathon medal and the annual refresh of the 10k medal.  And with last's week announcement of turning the 5k medals to metal, runDisney is making some really great calls to keep the medal addicts coming back (yes, I'm one of them).  If you do them both (yes please), you get the best of both worlds plus the adorable Dumbo medal.  I'm pretty excited to head out to California next month and hope everyone else is, too.  Happy running!
