Tinker Bell Half Marathon Moving to Mother's Day in 2015

Rate this Entry
runDisney just announced today that the Tinker Bell Half Marathon will be moving to Mother's Day weekend in 2015, which will be May 7-10, 2015. This move makes it a little easier for those women wanting to complete the Coast to Coast challenge with the Tinker Bell and Princess Half Marathons. It also means that there's room for a new as-yet-unnamed race to be held at Disneyland earlier in the year. What do you think of the change?

    Unfortunately by moving out to May we'll loose our wonderful cool running weather and will be dealing with a lot more people in the parks as Mother's Day is a CRAZY busy weekend at Disneyland/ DCA. I'm sure there is a financial reason for runDisney to move Tinker Bell to May (it's always about $$$) but I sure don't see a reason based on improving the actual guest experience. And from the comments I've seen so far on various websites, the response to the move isn't exactly positive. But we also know, based on the first move to earlier in January, that it will quickly sell out no matter where is it moved to (especially if they add in a challenge).

    It's moving from one holiday weekend to another. Right now it's on a 3-day weekend, which is better for those traveling from out of town, but also way too close to the WDW events to attract a larger cross section.

    I'm sure they'll add in a new CA race, but hopefully it will be in February or so to provide some distance from the WDW Marathon Weekend events.
