The runDisney Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend presented by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is less than a month away. The event takes place at Walt Disney World from February 18 – 21. This year’s finisher medals are inspired by “The Little Mermaid” and are fit for a princess!

The Disney Princess 5K kicks off the race weekend with a magical morning run through Epcot. Ariel, Sebastian and Flounder are featured on the finisher medallion ready to congratulate you on your accomplishment!

The Disney Princess Enchanted 10K is a run for royalty. The shell-inspired medal is better than a crown.

Disney Princess Half Marathon is the most magical race on earth! The course runs right through Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park before having a storybook ending at Epcot with this magnificent medal.

If you complete the Glass Slipper Challenge, which is a 19.3-mile adventure held over two days. It starts by running the 10K on Saturday followed by the half marathon on Sunday. Once completed, you are awarded the beautiful Glass Slipper Challenge medal in addition to your half marathon and 10K finisher medals.

Here is a look at all of the medals, including the runDisney Kids Races.
