Does the Princess 5k have a theme like a specific movie or is the theme Princess?
I am not sure if they have announced the theme for 2012, but the 2011 5K was the Beauty and the Beast 5k, and I think 2010 was Cinderella's step family/royal family. Either way, I think the course is always the same (through Epcot/World Showcase) and the theme mostly determines what the t-shirts/finisher medals look like. :wave:
ETA: Here is an entry on the touringplans.com blog from someone who ran the Princess Half Weekend 5k last year!
We are 90% sure that we are going to be running the princess 1/2 now....looking forward to the 1 RunDisney medal we don't have.
Just signed up! Excited for this race! Just finished the marathon and this will help me fight the post-marathon doldrums.
Registered.....that'll feed my hunger for another race. I was sitting on the couch last night, and I turned to my wife and said, "Ok. I'm ready. Let's do another one."
I'm in and this will be my first Disney race. I'm a runner and a WDW nut and a Floridian so I really don't have a good excuse as to why this is my first. But I'm sooooo excited about it. :kiss:
This will be my first 1/2 marathon ever and what better place to do it then my home away from home!
Very very excited.
Good luck in your first races guys!! Let us know how you do
Good Luck to all the Princesses and Princes running in this year's Princess 1/2 Marathon!!! :king:
Good Luck to all of the Princesses and Princes in the Princess Half Marathon today!! I hope you all do fantastic! I also hope someone writes a trip report!!
Rachel Booth claims Disney's Princess Half Marathon and historic 'Coast to Coast' milestone
I'll have a short trip report soon
Wow, what an experience. This was my first race of any kind running/walking. I anticipated it to be easier than it was but, thats what made it so rewarding in the end. It was very emotional. I cried as I crossed the finish because in true Disney style they really made you feel like a Princess! I finished in 3 hours 50 mins. I was proud of myself because after the 8th mile I fell 2 minutes behind pace! I finished 1 minute and 45 seconds ahead of pace. whew!
I am going back in November and doing the Wine and Dine 1/2 and my fiance will be hopefully running along side me.
This was one of the greatest experiences of my life
And, the MEDAL... it's so BEAUTIFUL!
Ooooooo. I will be watching for that! :animwink:
How absolutely wonderful!!! Your post was just the best! Congratulations!!! :sohappy:
I'm planning to run in the 2013 Princess.
2013 Event page is now up at http://espnwwos.disney.go.com/events/rundisney/princess-half-marathon/
Special 5th Anniversary medal. That seals the deal for us. We're in.
Here is my 2012 Princess 1/2 Marathon Report. I just started a new blog to try and use as documentation for all the races I've been running, and hopefully I can serve as a resource for those getting started, as I still read a ton of blogs for advice and motivation.
