This past weekend, thousands of runners conquered the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend at Disneyland in Anaheim, California!

On November 10-12, participants—including Lorraine, Ryan, and James (check out their special episode of THWIP! The Big Marvel Show! now)—challenged themselves, and each other, in a variety of races, including the Spider-Man 5K, the Thor 10K, the kid’s race, and the half marathon itself. A few daring entrants even took on the Infinity Gauntlet Challenge; those who completed both the Thor 10K and the Half Marathon—a whopping 19.3 miles in total—received a Gauntlet medal for their stellar achievement!

Participants ran in costume as their favorite heroes and posed with various Marvel characters along the course, taking a quick breather (and selfie) alongside the likes of Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Thor, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, and Loki. Music from the Marvel Studios films energized the runners as they trekked through the Disneyland Resort.

Check out a visual recap of the event in the gallery below! And congratulations to all participants on making it an incredible weekend!
