Get ready to run with Disney royalty!
The Disney Princess Half Marathon is one of the races held for the Disney Princess weekend starting on February 21, 2019. The event is held by the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, making this a charitable event. Over the weekend there is a 5K, 10K, and half marathon race.
Here are some of the best reasons that Disney fans love to attend the Disney Princess Half Marathon weekend!
The Disney Princess Weekend is in Celebration of Women
The entire Disney Princess weekend is devoted to the powerful image that the iconic princesses serve as role models for women young and old. You can feel the excitement around the park during this special weekend. Women wear tiaras and sparkly dresses while running or spectating. You will see many people running in well planned out costumes as well as great swag from the Expo before race day.
The Disney Princess Half Marathon starts in Epcot, takes you into Magic Kingdom, and then back to Epcot. The parks are fairly far apart, so most of the run is in between parks. Each park will have characters and photographers where you can stop for a quick shot with your favorite princess or other Disney characters.
There are spectators galore at each park, which makes it extra fun even if they are not cheering for you. It is free for spectators to view the race, should you decide not to go to the park that day.
Running for a Cause
Disney gives runners the option to run for a charity group. When participating in this, groups work to raise funds for the charity before the race. Each group is offered discounts on hotel rates, dining, and park tickets. Should you choose to go this avenue, race packets and tickets are available before the regular public sale, so, look into it early.
The Disney Princess Half Marathon easily has over 20,000 people running each year. Runners are separated into groups by previously recorded half marathon run times. Faster racers are scheduled for earlier starts, while slower athletes will have to wait a bit after the launch to get going. This allows people to choose how they would like to run the race.
If you are traditionally a fast runner but would like to take your time and enjoy the sights, you can enter without proof of race time. There are water stations about every mile and a half, and there is an energy gel station about halfway through the race. Near the end of the race, your photo will be taken as you run in front of Spaceship Earth. At the end of the race, you will receive a snack pack and a medal of completion.
