Weekend Events for Participants
Despite what the name might indicate, the Princess Half Marathon Weekend in Orlando is more than just simply a half marathon.

The Disney Fairytale Challenge
Those participants who decide to complete both the 10K and the half marathon races will be deemed part of the official Anna and Elsa-inspired Disney Fairytale Challenge. This prestigious group will receive specialized medals and in total, will cover 19.3 miles of resort terrain over two days.
Fun Beyond the Running Events
The Princess Half Marathon Weekend in Orlando also includes Disney Princess yoga on the lineup of events.
