Once upon a time, a little girl dreamed of completing the Disney Princess Half Marathon.....and now she has!! I received an entry to both the 10K and the Half as a Christmas gift and was able to complete the Glass Slipper Challenge! I have had the good fortune of running many Disney races, and this one was definitely not a disappointment.
The expo was well run, bustling, and fun!! I picked up lots of neat gear including my race shirts. While they are nice and good quality, the designs were not very nice and the colors were not very "princess-like". Bring your credit card because the items that they have for purchase at the expo are tough to race!!
Race days begin VERY early, but there is ample transportation, communication, and direction. Once you are in your corral, you will warm up extremely quickly and the party will get under way complete with characters, music, and FIREWORKS! The course is honestly not the best, lots of highway miles and limited park time but there is NOTHING like running down main street and Disney does a good job keeping you entertained with music and characters.
As with all Disney races, the course is incredibly crowded and you will be able to move quickly. Luckily, you won't want to. Savor every moment!! Once you hit the finish line, you will receive a STUNNING medal, a dusting of glitter, a box of food, and a gatorade.
Now head to the park and enjoy your day, Princess!
