Race Report: 2015 runDisney Glass Slipper Challenge – Princess 10K
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 2nd race of the 2015 runDisney Princess Half Marathon weekend was the Princess 10K. It was also the 1st race of the 2nd annual Glass Slipper Challenge. Running today was Perfectly Goofy Gail and Photo Bomb Becca. We had purchased our #NewBalance Minnie Shoes and Minnie ears months ago and had finally found the PERFECT event to wear them. Our theme was #TutuMuchMinnie.
The Princess 10K began at 5:30am in Epcot Park in the same local as the 5K. This course runs out of Epcot parking for around 3 miles, then ventures into World Showcase, out to Disney’s Boardwalk and then back into Future World ending in the same Epcot parking lot. Again, Anna & Elsa greeted the runners, from high above on a snowy overpass, in the 1st mile. White Rabbit was stationed at the 1st hairpin turn. And Tinker Bell & Periwinkle were right before Mile 2. Miles 3-4 saw Jiminy Cricket and Marie. Sports Mickey was positioned on Disney’s Boardwalk. Princess Minnie was waiting near the International Gateway. Her line was one of the longest I have ever seen during a runDisney race. Goofy was posing for photos in Future World.
I’m not a big fan of the WDW/Princess 10K course. It was on par with the last 3 times I have run it. I would like to see less miles (3) in the parking lot and more miles in the park. To see more of the course, costumes and Princess 10K please see the video above.
