Registration opened today for Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend, and if you haven’t run in this race, this might be the time to do it.
Disney’s Princess Half Marathon Weekend at Walt Disney World Resort

That’s because our runDisney team is working on a commemorative finisher’s medal for the 2013 race here at Walt Disney World Resort to mark the fifth anniversary of the race weekend, which is geared toward women and their active, healthy lifestyles. And the 2013 race will be the only one where you can get this special medal.

No details about the medal have been released yet, but I’m told it will feature some sort of princess tiara theme to it. Stay tuned for more details about that.

In the meantime, if you even think you might want to run, you’d better sign up early. This Princess race is a hot ticket. The race sold out last year in only a few months, with some 19,000 runners registering for the 13.1-mile run. This year the field is expected to swell to more than 20,000.

Like other runDisney races, this one, scheduled for February 22-24, will have fun stuff for runners of all ages and skill levels – everything from a Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Royal Family 5K to several Kids Races, plus a health and fitness expo with lots of running apparel and equipment geared toward women.

To sign up for the race or any runDisney race, as always, just go to


  • I’m signed up and it will be my first time running the Princess half. I’m SUPER excited!!!!!

  • Can’t wait for the new medal. I only have one princess so far, but I go for all the inaugurals and anniversaries. They are the best medals. Nothing beats a Disney race and I speak from alot of experience.

  • The Tot and January 1/2 took precedence for me this year. So if you could make this look less awesome than it clearly is, I’d SO appreciate it!

  • Any news on the DL Half Medal?

  • It would be awesome if the “Perfect Princesses” (participants in all 5 races) would get a special commemorative item as well! The Marine Corps Historic Half did that for those who ran in all 5 races. We got a unique “Iron Mile Company” pin which I proudly display next to my Lotso and Agent P pins on my backpack. 🙂
