never land 5K

by @according2kelly on January 20, 2014

the never land 5K, heck all of the runDisney 5Ks, are always totally memorable &perfectly magical.

it’s the only race during the tinker bell half marathon weekend that isn’t timed, making it more of a run than a race.

it’s something that the entire family can do together.

like all of the runDisney 5K’s, the entire family can actually run/ walk together. so it’s not surprising that that race corrals were filled with families, sometimes even multiple generations, often times everyone dressed in costume.

what else is special about the never land 5K? i love that the entire race takes places within disneyland & disney california adventure parks.


it’s not everyday that you get to experience the sun rise, as you are running in, & around the disneyland resort.

disney characters & entertainment on-course to cheer you on? photo opportunities galore?

everything & anything about the never land 5K makes it absolutely & completely special, in every possible way.

no other race, can produce that same warm & fuzzy, feel-good feeling that a runDisney family fun 5K creates.

especially at the finish, when they drape the “bling” around your neck.


after all,  it really is all about the bling – & runDisney races (even the 5Ks) always seem to have the very best medals.

so if you haven’t run disney yet – do it. whether it’s your first race, or your tenth, you’re sure to have a magical time.
