You’ll find princesses and fairies galore at Walt Disney World’s Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend in Florida and Disneyland’s Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend in California. Run through castles, snap photos with Disney characters, and take home bling decked with tiaras or fairy wings. Men are welcome, but the first two corrals are reserved just for ladies and only women can win awards. Choose from half marathon, 10K, and 5K distances, or opt for the Princess Half’s Glass Slipper Challenge, where runners earn a Cinderella-inspired medal for completing both the half and 10K on back-to-back days. Costumes optional.
Divas Half Marathon and 5K Series
Bubbly, roses, and faux-gem-bedazzled medals greet finishers at the Divas Half Marathon and 5K Series. Each of the 10 race weekends throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico offer something different like discount spa specials, free wine tastings, or post-race concerts and pool parties. Runners (men included) can even dress like divas by picking up feather boas and tiaras at on-course stations.
