It’s a magical race weekend that has been 15 years in the making for the 2023 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend presented by CORKCICLE! The countdown continues with less than a week until running royalty make their way to the Walt Disney World Resort for an exciting race weekend filled with three charming events and fairytale finishes.
For the anniversary weekend, we’re celebrating not only our favorite Disney Princesses, but the communities who support them. From the families we’re born into to the families we choose, and everything in between, this race weekend leads by example as we celebrate both our athletes and the people who lift them up.
Today we’re excited to share a first look at some of the enchanting merchandise that will be available starting Thursday, February 23, at the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo.
This year’s event merchandise collection takes inspiration from our royal women and everyone behind them, from whom they draw their strength. The people they lean on, the people they care for, the people who came before them, and those who believe in what each of them can achieve. Event weekend participants will find a variety of logo performance apparel and “I Did It!” finisher products, including shirts in multiple styles and jackets showcasing the race weekend artwork.
Other exciting products include weekend logo headwear, CORKCICLE drinkware, commemorative pins and pin sets and a Loungefly backpack! Whether you’re taking on 3.1 or 19.3 magical miles, participants in the weekend events will find something worth taking home.
Runners can also look to add a little more sparkle to their accomplishments with official event charms from Pandora Jewelry. Stop by the event merchandise location in AdventHealth Arena or at the Pandora Jewelry booth in the Athletic Center to pick yours up.
