Today is Global Running Day, and in celebration, Disney has opened registration for the 2020 Princess Half Marathon Weekend!
Princess Half Marathon
2020 marks the 12th annual Princess Half Marathon Weekend, one of the largest women-focused running events in the U.S. It will take place the weekend of February 21 – February 23, 2020.
Runners can choose between various distances: the Princess 5K on Friday, February 21, the Princess Enchanted 10K on Saturday, February 22, or the half marathon on Sunday, February 23. Ambitious racers can participate in the Disney Fairy Tale Challenge, which is 19.3 miles spanning two days. Fairy Tale Challengers run (on pace) in both the Princess Enchanted 10K on Saturday and the half on Sunday, and receive medals for both races, plus a third challenge medal!
Kids Races of varying distances are available for runners (and crawlers) aged 13 and under. Find out age restrictions for each race here.
Disney hosts four races throughout the year. Registration for the 2020 Disney Marathon Weekend (January 9 – January 12) and the 2019 Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend (October 31 – November 3) are open now, and the Star Wars Rival Run Weekend registration will open on June 16, 2019.
Each race has a variety of distances and challenges available, including kids races. A health & fitness expo is open during each race weekend.
