Disney's Princess Half Marathon
The Princess half marathon is Walt Disney World's race targeting the women's running market. The race occurs in February, with a course very similar to the Walt Disney World half marathon, which is run in January. Runners start outside Epcot, then go up World Drive to the Magic Kingdom, where they run up Main Street, then through Tomorrowland and Fantasyland before running out through the castle. Then it's onward through Liberty Square and Frontierland before exiting the park to head back toward Epcot for a loop through the center of Future World before finishing in the parking lot.
