Coming Soon: Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend

Disney wants to highlight the characteristics that all princesses should possess.

Disney is hosting its Princess Half Marathon weekend on February 24th through the 26th. This weekend event is only for women and is meant to celebrate that anything is possible for those women who have a dream. The event takes place at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, so if you want, you can plan a vacation at the same time.

Registration is currently taking place, and if you want a spot in the marathon you better act quick. According to Disney’s website, the marathon is already 91% full. In addition to the half-marathon, there is also a Royal Family 5K Run, Disney Royal Family Kids Races, and the Disney Fit for a Princess Expo.
Disney wants to highlight the characteristics that all princesses should possess. These include strength, commitment, fantasy, perseverance, courage, and determination. When you choose to run in this marathon, you are taking a stand for these most honorable attributes. What a great example to set for your children.

If you are a little unsure about the event, you can preview a video with pictures from the Princess Half Marathon that took place one year prior. Participants that finish the 13.1 mile race within the allotted time will receive a special finisher certificate. Commemorative shirts and pins are also handed out on the day of the race as memorials of the special event.

Disney does take photographs during the half marathon that you can purchase later on from their website. Also, the top five runners from each age category (which spans from age 14 to over 80) will receive special prizes. There are also a few categories for teams, such as mother/daughter, sister/sister, and open female team.
