- Princess Half Marathon Sunday, February 23, 2014
The sixth annual event takes you down Main Street U. S. A. and through Cinderella Castle. It just can't get better. You will never look at the castle the same way again; I promise. The course entertainment along this 13.1 journey is the best I have ever seen at a runDisney event. This race truly is fit for royalty!
- Inaugural Disney Enchanted 10K Saturday, February 22, 2014
This popular distance race comes to the Princess Weekend for the first time, and it is sure to appeal to newer runners; more than a beginner 5K, and half way to a half marathon. Take flight through Epcot and the Epcot Resorts for 6.2 miles. Warning: This race may just be your gateway to a full blown runDisney addiction.

What will the next, great runDisney perfectly-Princess must-have be? A new Dooney & Bourke bag? The next generation of New Balance Disney-inspired running shoes?? Stay tuned to @runDisney on Twitter and you can make your shopping list early.
|Great news- the Expo returns to the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex this year!!|
A VIP treat I highly recommend. I can't think of a better version of "the royal treatment" for runners; pre and post race food and drink, private restrooms, private bag check, padded stretching area, and massage ($10 for 10 minutes). You earned it! They even ask some special friends to stop by.
How's that weekend lineup your highness? Disney has packed so much sparkle and bling into three days that the Disney Princess Half Marathon may just be a girl's dream come true...
**Not only are these races sure to fill quickly, your favorite Disney Resorts may do the same! Destinations in Florida is offering great group rates at Disney's Pop Century Resort, Disney's Port Orleans Resort and Disney's Contemporary Resort. (Once again, all Disney resorts will be Host Resorts for this weekend.) Ask for my gal Siera!
