Princess Half Marathon Weekend Adds New Race, New Challenge and New Medals

Women-focused event to offer 10K, new challenge and special-edition medals fit for a Princess; Special Princess and Tinker Bell half marathon registration.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, FLA (April 26, 2013) – Building on the success of its women-focused events, runDisney is broadening the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend at Walt Disney World Resort next year by adding a 10K and a new two-race challenge.

The Princess 10K gives runners of various levels more opportunities to run through Disney theme parks and receive a specially-designed finisher medal. And runners looking for an even bigger challenge can sign up for the 10K on Saturday and the Half Marathon on Sunday (19.3 miles total) to earn the inaugural Disney Glass Slipper Challenge Medal to go along with medals from each individual race.

The Princess Half Marathon Weekend, scheduled for Feb. 20-23, is one of two women-focused runDisney events. The other is the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend in January at Disneyland Resort in California.  Both races are among the largest women-specific running events in the country and focus on healthy active lifestyles for women and girls.  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.

Also new in 2014 is a special edition runDisney Coast-to-Coast Race Challenge Medal for runners participating in the 2014 Tinker Bell Half Marathon at Disneyland in January and the 2014 Princess Half Marathon five weeks later at Walt Disney World.  Finishers receive the coveted medal featuring the likeness of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse with a pink overlay and lanyard.

Registration for the 2014 Princess Half Marathon opens June 11 at www.runDisney.com.  A limited number of runners will have the opportunity to register for both the Princess and Tinker Bell Half Marathon at that time.  Those not securing an early registration for the Tinker Bell Half Marathon will have a second chance when on-line registration officially opens on July 9.

Both the Princess and Tinker Bell Half Marathon weekends include signature runDisney events including a health and fitness expo geared towards women, kids races, a family fun run 5K, as well as featured half marathons for both weekend.

Location
Epcot

Race Course Description
The Walt Disney World 10K Course begins and ends at Epcot. Leaving the parking lot, the course heads up and over a ramp and to World Center Drive towards World Showcase (first noticeable elevation change). Entering World Showcase and continuing clockwise, towards International Gateway, the 10K course begins a series of small elevation changes. The first; France to the International Gateway, has a small bridge, with a second bridge upon leaving International Gateway. Staying left, runners take to the boardwalk at the Boardwalk Resort, running from the ESPN Zone towards Atlantic Dance Hall (boards can be slippery if there is high humidity or rain, so run with caution). Around the back of Atlantic Dance Hall is a bridge connecting the Boardwalk Resort to the Yacht and Beach Club where runners find more boardwalk and then flat and smooth concrete, with a few twists and turns. Finally the last elevation change occurs at the bridge from Beach Club to International Gateway. Moving through Future World and into the shadow of Spaceship Earth, the race is almost over. A quick dip behind the scenes of Epcot again and into the parking lot– the 10K is complete. Great distance and a fun course.
