Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon assembles medals

by  in Comic News Comment

RunDisney has unveiled what will undoubtedly become hot-ticket items on eBay a little more than three months from now: the finisher medals for the inaugural Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend

Planned for Nov. 14-16 at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, the event features kids races, a 5K, a half marathon, a pre-race pasta party featuring the Marvel characters and a merchandise expo. It’s the first such collaboration since Disney acquired Marvel in 2009.

The medals for the 5K and kids races feature images of the Avengers — specifically, Captain America, Thor and the Hulk — while the one for the half marathon boasts the stylish “A” emblem.

Registration filled up quickly in March, but limited spots remain through runDisney charities and travel providers.
