Are you looking for a way to put a little magic into your weekend? Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend is an annual event that celebrates women’s health and fitness. This event is part of the successful Walt Disney World Marathon.
The first competition took place in 2009. In its second year, over 13,000 participants competed against each other in the marathon. This event brings women of all ages together to celebrate their strength, perseverance, commitment, and determination.
The money raised will be donated to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to fighting against blood cancers.
This fun filled event will help cancer patients live longer. The competitors will receive team, masters, military, and age group awards. There is also a special award for wheelchair winners.
Join this competition and you might win the 2013 Disney Princess Half Marathon 5th Anniversary Medal, which features a tiara and pink jewels.
Winners can enter a sweepstakes presented by Lady Footlocker and receive the big prize, which includes one night in the Cinderella Castle, two-night stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, $200 Disney dining gift cards and many other prizes.
Great music and fun characters will encourage you along your journey. If you are staying at a Host Resort, you can use event transportation to all Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend events.
The 13.1 mile half marathon starts in the Epcot parking lot, up and through the Magic Kingdom, and back to Epcot. Men can participate too, but they are not eligible for any of the awards.
One of the coolest things about Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend is that participants are wearing character costumes such as The Snow White, Princess Nala, Princess Leia, and Cinderella.
Race amenities include a padded stretching area, temperature controlled tents, a signature post-race celebratory cocktail, Disney character greetings, and Internet access to check live results.
Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend 2013 is on Feb. 23rd and 24th 2013. There is also a kids race, pasta in the park, 5K run and more. Click the link below for full details.
