While many men will be in Daytona Beach for the annual Daytona 500 NASCAR race, a half marathon for women-only will be taking place at Walt Disney World that happens every February each year. The Disney Princess Half Marathon is the ultimate race for women and girls that takes runners from Epcot and back after a run through the Magic Kingdom. The 2016 event takes place on Friday, February 19th at 6 AM.

Disney Princess Half Marathon

While the Disney Marathon and Half Marathon that takes place in January each year, that is open to both men and women, has Disney characters along the race route across the Disney spectrum, the Disney Princess Half Marathon focuses specifically on the Disney Princesses along the race route with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy in their royal gear. Similar to the annual Marathon and half Marathon, the Disney Princess Half Marathon and the 5k family race that takes place on the day before sold out the 2015 event.
