Addition of Marvel Characters Headed to 2016 Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend

Runners, get set! runDisney has changed the name of one of their action packed races. What once was known as the Avengers Half Marathon Weekend will now be called the Super Heros Half Marathon Weekend, according to Disney Parks Blog.

This change comes as more characters are to be added in the entertainment lineup. The race which is set for November, will welcome new faces to the Disney Parks runDisney event, headed for the Disneyland Resort.

To kick off the first year, we are thrilled to announce the themes for the event weekend. To celebrate the 75th anniversary of Captain America’s first appearance, the Captain America 5K will be inspired by the vintage style of the original artwork!

The master of mystic arts is set to host the Doctor Strange 10K. What better motivation than the “Doctor Strange” movie releasing the week before the event?

The half marathon will remain the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon. Get ready to see the First Avenger, Captain America!

Registration for this event will begin on April 12, 2016, at noon, Eastern time.

What do you think of the Dr. Strange addition?
