Runners will follow them along the route and all finishers will take home a medal featuring the courageous Rapunzel and her adorable chameleon Pascal. The Neverland-themed runDisney Kids Races at both 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday are a chance for kids to take home a magical medal featuring Peter Pan and friends.
As love is the greatest adventure of all, the Disneyland Paris – Val d’Europe Half-Marathon on Sunday 22 September showcases the beloved Disney character couples. Finishers get to take home a medal featuring the most iconic couple in animation history – Mickey and Minnie Mouse – running at Disneyland Paris.
Last but not least, runners entering the various challenges can make a spectacular addition to their collection with a flying Aladdin on the 31K Challenge medal (10K + Half-Marathon) and the magnificent Genie on the 36K Challenge medal (5K + 10K + Half-Marathon). Obviously, Sleeping Beauty Castle is still the ultimate object of desire for finishers of the Castle to Château Challenge.

The original designs were produced behind the scenes at the Disney parks, with close attention to detail for that essential touch of magic. This video gives you an exclusive peek at how this year’s medals were created:
From 18 June, collectors can also purchase replicas of these incredible medals in the form of limited-edition pin badges available for the runners at the runDisney e-shop and for all at the runDisney Expo during the event.
