Turning to commentary, the obvious factor to debate is the 2024 Disneyland Halloween Half Marathon. We haven’t performed a Halloween-adjacent runDisney occasion for the reason that inaugural Tower of Terror 10-Miler, which was means again within the day. If I recall accurately, our greatest complaints about that occasion had been the course, climate, and worth. We cherished the whole lot else about it, together with the spook season environment.

I might hazard a guess it’ll be an analogous story with the 2024 Disneyland Halloween Half Marathon. This course received’t have an interminable stretch by means of the ESPN Large World of Sports activities, however it can have one by means of random roads in Anaheim and its native sports activities stadiums. Very totally different, but surprisingly comparable!

The value will simply be double or triple what we paid a decade in the past for the Tower of Terror 10-Miler. Nonetheless, there’s little sense in complaining about and even discussing pricing for runDisney occasions anymore. It’s a demand-driven market, and the 2024 Disneyland Halloween Half Marathon could have a digital queue and promote out inside hours of occurring sale. You’ll be fortunate to get a spot.

Southern California climate is a raffle in early September, which is commonly one of many worst instances of the complete yr. But, it’s nonetheless significantly higher than Central Florida climate just about any time of the yr. So not a lot sense in complaining about that, both. Furthermore, if I had been coming from out of city and doing time at Disneyland, I’d fortunately take early September and the whole lot that entails over the prospect of higher climate in October, however the whole lot else that entails.

To that time, I’m actually trying ahead to the 2024 Disneyland Halloween Half Marathon. It’s an inaugural occasion, so runDisney ought to put a ton of effort into it. The programs will characteristic Halloween leisure, which Disneyland does very well. I’d anticipate to see characters in retired Halloween costumes, parade performers and floats, and way more. My guess is that it’s the spotlight of the upcoming runDisney season.

Until I’ve a completely horrible time doing the 2024 Disneyland Half Marathon, I’ll undoubtedly be doing the 2024 Disneyland Halloween Half Marathon. Heck, even when the upcoming Half is a nasty expertise (which I extremely doubt), I nonetheless would possibly do the Halloween Half. My solely “criticism” is that it’s not Christmas–however Halloween sounds unbelievable, too!

For these planning forward, the 2024 Disneyland Halloween Half Marathon will probably coincide with the start of Halloween Time at Disneyland and the primary dates of Oogie Boogie Bash – A Disney Halloween Celebration. That’s, except Disney begins the events in late August to dilute some demand, which might be a actually savvy transfer and good for each their backside line and for occasion attendees.

Talking of which, a number of occasions occurring in such shut proximity goes to make registration for the 2024 Disneyland Halloween Half Marathon much more aggressive. It’s clearly going to be unhealthy as a result of it’s an inaugural occasion, but it surely’ll be even more durable because of the timing round Halloween.

Ditto shopping for Oogie Boogie Bash tickets when these go on sale. You assume this yr was unhealthy? Nicely, scheduling these collectively appears like a “maintain my beer” second from Disneyland. Once more, I actually hope they begin Oogie Boogie Bash in late August. I get why individuals bemoan “vacation creep” occurring with Halloween beginning earlier and earlier, however demand is there–it’s provide/capability that’s the issue. Halloween beginning within the late August low season would assist a lot!

Not a lot commentary so as to add to that. There may be the matter of timing, which is attention-grabbing. I had so much to say about runDisney scheduling the Walt Disney World Marathon and Disneyland Half Marathon back-to-back in 2024, and potential theories as to why (attendance projections, Metropolis of Anaheim dictating dates, not desirous to double-book with D23 Expo within the autumn low season).

Some runDisney followers responded {that a} September occasion wouldn’t be viable as a consequence of climate. That undoubtedly was a sound level, however now we all know that’s not the important thing consideration. (I agree with these runners–transferring this to mid-September would’ve been higher from a climate perspective, however early September will not be terrible.)

Past that, I truly actually like this runDisney schedule. Actually, transferring the Disneyland Half Marathon to January now makes way more sense–it opens the door for a Halloween occasion, which clearly couldn’t be held within the winter.

I’d far want a vanilla race within the winter and a Halloween race in September, versus one thing Star Wars or Marvel in January and the common Half Marathon in September. The timing of the Disneyland Halloween Half additionally leaves the door open for a Vacation Half in mid-November when there’s often a lull in crowds. It’s probably too late for that in 2024, however right here’s hoping it’s added in November 2025!

Talking of which, the 2025 runDisney calendar additionally places extra daylight between the Walt Disney World Marathon and Disneyland Half Marathon. That’s excellent news for anybody making an attempt to do the coast-to-coast. At the very least, I believe in order somebody who doesn’t significantly take care of coaching and whose physique would nonetheless be recovering per week or so later!

Finally, a very good lineup of dates and occasions for the 2024-2025 runDisney race calendar. I plan on doing not less than one in all these occasions, and probably extra relying upon how issues go and schedules line up. The 2025 Walt Disney World Marathon is one thing that’s been on my calendar for some time for private causes, and I’ll probably be doing it as a pre-planned, quasi-midlife disaster. In order that ought to be a superb time.

It’ll be attention-grabbing to see the race themes for that race plus the Disneyland Half Marathons, and the remainder of the occasions. RunDisney has been crushing it with these these days, and if they’ll proceed that run, it’s probably that these occasions will proceed promoting out in document time. As a really informal “runner” who dislikes the act of working however very a lot enjoys “themed issues,” I’m hoping for one thing that compels me to lace up my footwear at Walt Disney World or Disneyland as soon as once more!
