2015 runDisney Princess Half Marathon Weekend Race Medals

2015 runDisney Princess Half Marathon Weekend Race Medals

A touch of eternal winter is coming to the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend presented by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at Walt Disney World Resort next year.  Two of the popular family-focused events during the race weekend, the Disney Princess 5K and runDisney Kids Races, will have a new Frozen theme with new medals depicting a Frozen motif from the hugely successful Disney animated film.

In addition to the Disney Princess 5K and the runDisney Kids Races, the February 19-22 race weekend will feature the Disney Princess Enchanted 10K and Disney Glass Slipper Challenge, which involves running the 10K and the half marathon on consecutive days (19.3 miles). Runners who complete the Challenge will earn the Disney Glass Slipper Challenge Medal to go along with medals from each individual race.

The Princess Half Marathon Weekend is one of two women-focused runDisney events. The other is the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend in May at Disneyland Resort in California.  Both races focus on healthy active lifestyles for women and girls and are among the largest women-specific running events in the country.  For instance, after nearly 7,500 runners ran in the inaugural Princess Half Marathon event in 2009, the popularity of the race has grown considerably with more than 26,000 registered runners for last year’s race.

Will the runDisney New Balance Shoes Be Available at the 2014 Disney Expedition Everest Challenge Expo?


Still looking to pick up a pair of the 2014 runDisney New Balance Sneakers?  Are you registered for the 2014 Expedition Everest Challenge at Walt Disney World? Well, now may be your chance to snag a pair of the coveted pavement pounders.

I asked my contact at runDisney if the shoes would be available at the Expedition Everest Challenge Expo, since it’s such a small expo, and my contact told me that the shoes will be on sale there, but that New Balance’s inventory won’t be as large as it was for the 2014 Marathon Weekend and Princess Half Marathon Weekend. Also, there will not be an early sign-up process. It will be first come, first served.

On your mark…get set…GO!
