Disney Princess Half Marathon – Moana
Runners looking to brave the Disney Princess Half Marathon presented by CORKCICLE will need to sharpen up their wayfinding skills as they set sail with Moana, the ancestral spirit of Gramma Tala guiding the way, along with Pua, Hei Hei, and Maui.
Disney Fairy Tale Challenge – Cinderella
In celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the Fairy Tale Challenge, Guests who dare to conquer both the 10K and the Half Marathon for a total of 19.3 miles, will find themselves amidst a fairytale come true, with Cinderella and her faithful friends, Gus Gus, Jacque, Suzy, and Perla—and her Fairy Godmother, of course!
I love these race themes! I think it is great that they are celebrating not only the princess, but that team that supports her! If you are a runner, you know it takes a team to sometimes reach your goals!
