    I can see it now - halfway through the run, a giant robot descends from the Heavens flattening the Hyatt and Castle Inn with each foot respectively and it's UP TO THE RUNNERS TO STOP HIM!

        Re: Avengers 1/2 Marathon

        I am very interested in doing this race (my first Disney race). I will be coming from out of town. Does anyone have any recommendations/tips for the race and staying in the Anaheim Resort area? I am also hoping to get some park time in (do the races make the parks more crowded or are the runners not that interested in going to the parks?)

            Great investment so far in marvel. A few marginal exhibits of marvel in the parks and a run.

              I think you are forgetting about the piles of money they are making off of the films and merchandising, so yes it was a great investment.

                  Kind of bummed there is no 10K for this one like there is for all the others. But it is nice that they made another one for this coast instead of doing it all for WDW.

                  Since they moved Tinkerbell from Jan to May next year & supposedly permits are still on file for Jan 2015 to do another marathon, I'm hoping that means we'll get the rumored Star Wars one too.
                  WDW has Star Wars week already, so we should be allowed to have the marathon if it happens Besides, they have so many more runDisney events than us anyways
                  Just my opinion of course.

                  I'll try anything once, twice if I like it & the 3rd time it's an addiction.
                  This years Tinkerbell was my 1st runDisney experience. Dumbo will be my 2nd.
                  Avengers, here I come. Can we guess what my new addiction is

                      Lol, more like they're flattening those two properties to make room for more Disney expansions :lol:

                        Physical labor is one of my own personal enemies/demons. But the announcement of this Half-Marathon almost makes me want to defeat it, the same way the Avengers defeat a threat... :thumbup:

                        Seriously, I'd consider this one!

                          So the runDisney website indicates that The Avengers will be out to cheer on the runners. Does this mean that DL will be getting Avenger face characters (beyond Thor and Captain America)? Also, how will they be able to pull off an Incredible Hulk character? (Unless they have the character be Bruce Banner and not The Hulk, which would be lame).

                            Maybe he will be the size of Sully or Beast

                              Stay close. The roads can be a mess, and it starts early. So really staying onsite or just across the Esplanade on Harbor makes a huge difference.

                              Little difference in crowds. That is when the Holidays start and it's a little busy on Friday-Sunday.

                              Next year I'm trying for a summer internship at Stark Industries.
