Finally! My Disney Princess Half Marathon Race Photos

Words can’t even begin to describe the thrill and inspiration of running the Disney Princess Half Marathon. These photos capture a bit of the magic. The race started with Fireworks, we ran down Main Street in the Magic Kingdom and through the Castle, and finished at Epcot. With all kinds of music, marching bands, and beloved Disney Characters cheering us on – and taking photos with us too!

Here’s my splits below. Overall place Women’s Division – 277 th out of 15,802

I was thrilled with my time – averaged 8:13 per mile and I stopped for lots of character photos for the 1st half of the race to keep me relaxed and easy. The last 3 miles were tough – as my longest training run was a 10 miler – so there was no stopping as I feared I’d never start again if I stopped moving lol :)

5K Split: 24:45
10K Split: 49:51
15K Split:  1:15:21


We ran around Epcot as we neared the final 1/2 mile of the race.

Crossing the finish line – 1:47: 44 was my actual final time. Here are all the splits.

The finish line was glorious. Characters were dressed up cheering us on at the Finish chute – Goofy was decked out in his finery and confetti was everywhere.
