Race Report: 2015 runDisney Frozen 5K
Early registration for Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members for the Princess Half Marathon Weekend will open on Tuesday, June 30, 2015 EST. General registration for the Princess Half Marathon Weekend will open July 14, 2015.
The 1st race of the 2015 runDisney Princess Half Marathon weekend was the Frozen 5K. Luckily for runDisney, the weather cooperated with the Frozen theme, it was chilly cold. However, unlike for WDW Marathon weekend, we were prepared this time with warm costumes. Running today was Perfectly Goofy Gail and Photo Bomb Becca AKA #HotAcorn. We were dressed as Chip & Dale with our #HotAcorn.
The Frozen 5K began at 5:30am in Epcot Park. The Princess Half Marathon weekend races share the same courses as WDW Marathon weekend, however I think runDisney does a better job with course entertainment during Princess weekend. This was certainly true for the Frozen 5K. runDisney brought out the big guns for THIS 5K. The course runs out of Epcot parking and into World Showcase and into Future World back out into the parking lot. However, on this course the photos stops were A-List Disney Characters – Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Anna and Elsa. Note – Anna & Elsa were on stage far away and high above the common folk.
Also, because this was the FROZEN 5K, Let it Go was the course music all 3.1 magical miles of the race. And not only was it played in English, but as we ran from World Showcase country to country, the music changed languages.
This was my 3rd time running the Princess 5K and this was the best show so far. Well done runDisney.
Did you run the Frozen 5K? Are you running again in 2016?
