Disney Royal 5k a first for We Run Disney!

The girls of We Run Disney have participated in many Disney races, including the Wine and Dine Half Marathon, Disney Princess Half Marathon and WDW (aka Donald) Half Marathon to name a few.  We have always stuck to the longer distances while running at the most magical place on earth.  When we decided to run the Princess Half Marathon this year, the idea of running the Royal Family 5k became a topic of discussion.  Finally we pushed the register button and yes, we are very eager to try our first short race by runDisney.  Our plan is to take a very easy pace and enjoy all the character photo opportunities along the race course.
Royal Family 5k race course through EPCOT
The course route looks really fun, with the majority of it running through Epcot.  Of course we have decided to wear costumes, although they are not nearly as elaborate as what we have planned for the Princess Half.   Pam is wearing her "Mouse About Town" skirt by Sparkle Skirts and Christine will be sporting a pink Team Sparkle skirt that she'll be picking up at the Expo...talk about last minute planning!  Here is a sneak peak of Pam's attire:


Both of us will bring our phones for photos and hopefully we will run into some of our favorite Disney characters along the way.  If you see us out on the course, say hi!  Stay tuned for a race recap of our first 5k race at Disney!

  2. The 2011 Royal Family 5k was the first Disney race I ever ran (actually the first race of any kind I ever ran) and the beginning of my Run Disney obsession! I love the run around the countries in Epcot. Hope you have a great time! I'm running the Princess on sunday morning...can't wait!
