Lenore Moreno Shatters Disneyland's Tinker Bell Half Marathon Record

Pixie power and persistence pushed Lenore Moreno to smash a race record by almost 9 minutes in the fourth annual Tinker Bell Half Marathon presented by PANDORA Jewelry at Disneyland Resort.

The West Covina, Calif., resident flew by her competition to finish in 1:15:55, well under the former race record of 1:24:11. She was also nearly nine minutes ahead of second-place finisher Ann Mazur of Charlottesville, Va. (1:24:10); Anne-Marie Nuno of Irvine, Calif., came in third (1:24:21).

“Just being inside Disneyland, I think that’s what gave me that push and helped me to forget about how long this half marathon was and just to enjoy the moment,” Moreno said. “I couldn’t have done it anywhere else. Passing under that castle was just magical.”
