Walking is only HALF as much fun as running.

Get ready for road closures in Anaheim. Disneyland’s Half Marathon will take place on September 3rd, 2007. You can expect early-morning to late-morning road closures in the areas surrounding the resort as runners take to the streets for the Happiest Race on Earth.

If you’re planning on driving in Anaheim on Labor Day, you may want to steer clear of the resort entirely. If you are certifiable and planning on visiting the Parks, then prepare yourself for Half Marathon madness – which is basically taking over both parks, Angel Stadium and portions of Ball Rd, Cerritos Blvd, and Disneyland Drive.

If you just want to be a spectator, word is the best spot is at Downtown Disney near the finish line. Parking will be entirely up to you (good luck). The race starts at 6 AM. So don’t be late if you wanna watch all the sweaty Disneyphiles charging through the streets.

For those who are less ambitions, there is also a 5k family run that doesn’t leave the confines of Disneyland’s property at 7 am the day before the marathon. Full information about all the running events at the resort this weekend can be found at Disney’s Wide World of Sports web site.
