Let’s talk RunDisney- Princess 5K

The morning of your race you’ll take the bus to where the race starts. You’ll need to know what coral you’re in (it’s on your bib) and what time your coral starts.

When you’re first dropped off it literally feels like a party!  There’s music playing, there’s characters, there’s food trucks. It’s just a vibe you can’t explain.

Our characters for meet and greet were (5k) Ariel, (10k) Rapunzel, (half marathon) Tiana, (run challenge) Anna and Elsa.

I didn’t know there was going to be food and drinks. So make sure if you’re hungry you go check that out before turning in your bag.

That’s right, Disney will hold your bag/backpack for you. There are clear bags that you will write down your bib number on. Then you will take it to one of the locker trucks they have there. They will give you a sticker to put on the back of your bib. You will then show them this number when you return. It’s actually very organized.

Then you head to your coral. Things got very crowded here. Once it was time for the races to start it was a lot of waiting since I was in coral D. But don’t worry your race time doesn’t start until you cross them start line.

There was some very cool characters during the race but the lines were just so long. I didn’t stop for any but I did see Prince Charming, Cinderella, Bo Peep, Goofy, and some more.

You don’t HAVE to run. The 5k isn’t a timed event. So this one is great for beginners and/or to experience with your kids. Kids can run the 5k at the age of 5 years old. For the 10k, kids must be at least 10 years old and 14 for the Half Marathon.

Nothing can prepare for the feeling you’re feeling when you’re out there. Since my friend was sick I had to run the race alone but it also gave me time to reflect on the beauty of it all.

Would I recommend the 5K to beginners? ABSOLUTELY! I plan to do it again next year with my daughter!
