Princess Half Marathon

Walt Disney World Resort and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals have extended their long-term relationship with a new agreement naming Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a nonprofit raising funds and awareness for North American children’s hospitals, as the presenting sponsor of the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend.  The agreement gives Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals an opportunity to increase both awareness and fundraising for the Network’s 170 children’s hospitals. It also gives  race participants another way to combine their passion for running with ways to support the charitable efforts of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Scheduled for February 20-23, 2014, the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend presented by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is geared toward women and girls of all ages. Featured events include the runDisney kids races, a Royal Family 5K, the new Disney Enchanted 10K race and a half marathon that traces a 13.1-mile course through Magic Kingdom and Epcot parks, plus the new Glass Slipper Challenge for runners completing both the half marathon and the 10K race.

The relationship between Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and Disney dates back to 1987 when Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals hosted its annual Telethon at Disneyland Resort in California. The Walt Disney World Resort later hosted the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, a PGA TOUR event, and currently hosts Celebration Week to honor the children of the charity’s Champions program.

In addition to being a celebrated part of the race weekend for thousands of runners and volunteers, the charity will receive up to 400 registrations for the sold-out race that will be reserved for athletes interested in fundraising for the group. Half marathon hopefuls must fundraise a minimum of $300 to participate in the event while runners who commit to raise more than $1,600 also will receive a two-day Park Hopper pass and a two-night stay at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
