Princess Half Marathon 411

It's February!!  And you know what that means!  It's the month of the Princess Half Marathon...our 2nd half marathon of 2013.

As with all of the other Disney races this calendar year, we have put all of the info you'll need to make this a happy race weekend.  Princess Half Marathon Weekend is about 2 weeks so now is the perfect time to start gathering all of the documents you'll need and plan a detailed schedule for your weekend.  If you're anything like us, you won't want to miss any of the action! 

Note that this year's expo will be held at the Coronado Springs Convention Center instead of the ESPN Wide World of Sports Center.  And runDisney provided clarification on the expo hours via twitter.  It will be open Friday 9:00am-7:30pm and on Saturday 9:00am-6:30pm.
