Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend

If there is one thing the Disney Princesses have taught us, it’s that anything is possible. Even running in high heels.

Not that anyone in their right mind would run in heels, but if you wanted to try, Disney’s creative team, Yellow Shoes, has created the perfect running slipper made of glass to help make that possible. And just in time for Disney’s Princess Half Marathon this weekend.

Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend offers every woman and girl the chance to embrace her inner princess. More than 18,000 runners from every U.S. state and 16 countries are taking part in the race weekend, which includes an expo (Saturday and Sunday) filled with health and fitness exhibits and empowering speakers, kids’ races (Saturday), Disney’s The Princess and The Frog Royal Family 5K (Saturday) and the 13.1 mile half marathon (Sunday).

And it’s at the expo that you can see the special glass running slipper. It has made its way across the U.S. to Lady Foot Lockers and top endurance events in the nation and ends its journey right where it started – at Walt Disney World.

Some special Disney characters will be waiting for you at the expo and on the race route so we hope to see you out there. For detailed info on the race weekend and to register for next year’s race check out our website.


  • Wow, if I was able, I’d be there! What a neat event. And I LOVE the glass shoe! 🙂
