    If I compete in the NEVER LAND 5K or TINKER BELL 10K in Disneyland in May 2016 do I earn a medal? If I compete in the TINKER BELL Half Marathon do I have to complete it to earn the medal (I'm not sure how fast I'll be)? So excited about this!

    Welcome to the wonderful world of runDisney, Rebecca! 

    I'm so excited to hear you are interested in participating in the 2016 Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend at the Disneyland® Resort. This whimsical race weekend will have you running off to Neverland. 

    Finishers of the Neverland 5K will be awarded with a beautiful Finisher's Medallion Medal. I find the 5K medallion's to be among the cutest medals that are given out during runDisney race events. 

    Finishers of the Tinker Bell 10K also receive medals. These medals are made of metal and will also be stunning. 

    Runners participating in the Tinker Bell Half Marathon who are unable to complete their race have, in the past, been transported to the finish line where they were rewarded for their efforts and received the Half Marathon Finisher's Medal. However, this procedure isn't listed as a definite policy and could change at anytime. I believe you can do it, Rebecca! And by following the run/walk method created by the official runDisney Training Consultant, Jeff Galloway, you will fly like Tinker Bell right to the finish line!

    You can also take a look at the medals 2015 participants of the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend earned by selecting the link - that will increase your excitement even more! 

    Don't forget to mark your calendar, this pixie-dusted race event opens for registration on August 11th - just around the corner. And don't forget to ask any additional questions you may have, Rebecca! Hope to hear from you again.
