“First, think. Second, dream. Third, believe. And finally, dare.” – Walt Disney

Run through Disneyland® Paris parks with Mickey Mouse and Minnie cheering you on, in support of Tŷ Hafan whilst making magical memories that will last a life time.

The Disneyland® Paris Run Weekend consists of a variety of distances including a Half Marathon, 10K, 5K and Kids Races as well as the 31K and 36K Challenge all featuring spectacular Disney® entertainment and characters. Whether you are an absolute beginner or an experienced runner, there is a challenge suitable for everyone.

Let the Tŷ Hafan events team take care of your entire trip, from arranging your transport and accommodation to securing your race entry and any optional extras you would like.

We’ll even be there on the weekend to ensure your trip is everything you wished for and you have a magical fundraising weekend. In the months leading up to your trip, the Tŷ Hafan Events Team will also be on hand to give you any advice or support you may need to raise your sponsorship money.

The countdown has begun:

The four day trip will leave Cardiff early on Thursday 20 September 2018 and return in the late evening on Sunday 23 September 2018. Your magical trip of a lifetime will include:

Day 1 – Depart Cardiff (time TBC) and travel to Paris by coach and ferry. Arrive at Disneyland® Paris and have a free evening enjoying the Disney® Village.

Day 2 – Free day in Disneyland® Paris with rides, parades and shows all included. Race participants will need to collect their race packs from the Health and Wellness Expo with the Events Team. In the Expo there will be official merchandise, the latest fitness gear, gadgets and nutritional products as well as seminars with celebrity runners on training, running and nutrition. 5K race is at 8pm.

Day 3 – 10K race is at 8am with the kids races starting from 11am, followed by a free afternoon in Disneyland® Paris. Attend optional Tŷ Hafan group meal at 6pm*. You can then spend the evening in the park or Disney Village.

Day 4 – Half Marathon at 7am. All ready to depart from the hotel at 2pm to travel back to Cardiff via coach and ferry. Arrive back in Cardiff (time TBC).

*extra charge

Option 1 - Self Fund

We arrange all of the logistics of the trip on your behalf. With this option you pay the amount to cover the cost of your trip and then have the option to fundraise for Tŷ Hafan with a sponsorship target depending on which race you enter.

Option 2 - Sponsorship

We arrange all of the logistics of the trip on your behalf. You will be given a minimum sponsorship target you will need to reach before the end of August. The amount of sponsorship you will need to raise will depend on which race you enter.

Option 3 - Run for us

Due to high demand ‘Run for Us’ is no longer available as all races have sold out. However you can still take part in a race if you book through Option 1 or Option 2.

If you would rather make your own way to Disneyland Paris and arrange your own accommodation, then this would be the option for you. You can still run for us, get your Tŷ Hafan Commemorative t-shirt, have access to our exclusive Disney Half Marathon Facebook Group, be invited to our pre trip fundraising events; all we ask is you raise a minimum amount of sponsorship depending on which race you are taking part in.
