2014 Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend Kid's Races

I've been running the Disneyland Half Marathon for the past several years and this year I signed my niece up to run the 100 yard dash!  We got down to Anaheim Friday evening with just enough time to pick up her bib from the Expo. The kids races are held on Saturday morning. 

The kids races include a t-shirt. It was really cute. 

Violet got a stuffed runDisney Mickey. 

After picking up our bib we had dinner at White Water Snacks in the Grand California Hotel. The nachos there are so good!

The Kid's races stated at 9am but we had to be lined up about an hour early. 

Violet was a little tired as we waited and didn't want to smile for my pictures. 

Once it was time we walked toward the starting line. 

They let small groups go at a time. Even though we had practiced running Violet was just walking along. I think it was all a little overwhelming. As we neared the finish line we saw Stitch!

That got a smile out of her!

Violet ran right up to Stich for a hug. 

After crossing the finish line she got her medal. 

We then changed her into her race shirt and hit the Expo. 

There were a couple of free photo opportunities at the Expo. 

Free light up key chains from DVC. 

A well deserved treat. 

Violet loved showing off her medal to the Princess's. 

I highly recommend the Disney kids races. The price isn't bad and it so worth it!  Have your kids ever participated in the kids races?  Let me know in the comments below.
