Guests will join Disney Princesses for a “dream come true” weekend of majestic runs when the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend presented by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals returns to Walt Disney World Resort from February 23-26, 2017. Today, I have a first look commemorative merchandise created especially for this annual runDisney event.
Runners participating in the Disney Princess Half Marathon will find apparel including short and long-sleeved shirts, jackets, tank tops, and running shorts. This year, elements from Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” will be seen throughout the weekend through entertainment, race medals, and on select products (the roses found on race apparel is a nice nod to the Disney animated classic).
Similar products were also created for guests running the 19.3-mile Disney Glass Slipper Challenge. You’ll find a race jacket, a tank top, logo shirts and running pants.
Look for apparel and accessories for other races being held during the weekend including the Disney Princess 5K, Disney Princess Enchanted 10K, and runDisney Kids Races.
Other products include drinkware, a new commemorative shoe ornament inspired by the race weekend, and three Disney Princess-inspired handbags by Dooney & Bourke (a specially designed leather hangtag will be found on select silhouettes).
Finally, guests will find car magnets, Bondi Bands, and Sweaty Bands. The limited release Disney pins will include pins shaped like miniature replicas of the “Beauty and the Beast”-inspired race medals.
Look for these commemorative items and more during runDisney Health & Fitness Expo at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. All guests are invited to attend the Expo during the following dates and times:
