More than 56,000 princesses and princes alike descended upon Walt Disney World Resort this past weekend for the 2019 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend presented by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Filled with royal memories and fairy-tale finishes, runners celebrated some of the classic Disney Princesses in a weekend of exciting events. Take a look at a few of our favorite highlights from throughout the weekend:
Runners set off on an adventure with their familia during the Disney Princess 5K, which celebrated the beautiful la princesa, Elena of Avalor! Participants danced their way through an exciting 3.1 miles of fun.
It was a race worth finishing for during the Disney Princess Enchanted 10K featuring Mulan. Warriors courageously took on the 6.2-mile course swiftly during the weekend’s second event.
Full of grace and beauty, runners finished the dreamy weekend with a run through Walt Disney World Resort during the Disney Princess Half Marathon, celebrating Princess Aurora. Capturing her first runDisney event win, Jackie Pirtle-Hall met her fairy-tale ending in first place with a time of 1:18:30. Also celebrating a royal win, Bethany Evans captured the overall Female Wheelchair Division, posting a time of 1:25:13.
