Glass Slipper Challenge and Princess Half Marathon Weekend 2014

Yesterday runDisney announced the prices for the Princess Half Marathon weekend of races which include the new Glass Slipper Challenge.  The excitement was huge after the announcement for this race challenge and it will be interesting to see how quickly this event will sell out.  Registration is scheduled to open sometime in early June, so keep your eyes and ears open if you are interested in registering for the race weekend.  If you follow our blog, you know that the Princess Half Marathon in 2011 was our first big race and first runDisney race.

  1. I am definitely running the Princess Half but not sure if I am going to do the GSC. I'm going down with about 10 other family members for my bachelorette party. Not sure if it logistically fits into our weekend . My family (which is not made up of runners!) is already attempting to walk the HM, I know they wouldn't be up for both!

    Choices, choices... :)

    1. Karen, I would get the family to walk the 10k and then cheer for you for the half. RunDisney will surely have great medals for this inaugural event!

  2. Did you see that they also announced the chance to get 2 Coast to Coast medals in 1 year, the Tink/Princess pink one, plus the regular one. Of course that would mean 4 trips. I wish they would do the C2C for the 10K's, or even the 10 Milers, though. I'm going Dopey in 2015, and hope to my C2C that year too.

    1. Yes, we did see that. we will not be trying for two C2C medals....too many trips to west coast.

  4. Before the GSC announcement, I had already decided I would be running 26.2 with Donna in Jacksonville with Marcia (@TravelRunEat). I am tempted to hit up the 10K at WDW but still need to think through logistics.

  5. Love the addition of the new races--hate what it is doing to my bank account! ;)

    1. Agree about the bank account. Also, not certain we can manage back to back runs a month after Dopey Challenge!

  6. I'm doing Glass Slipper with my racing buddy and I even convinced 2 newbies to do the 10K. Should be a blast! Maybe I'll run into you this time. :)

    1. Jaime, I am not sure we are in for the Glass Slipper Challenge. We are both registered for Dopey and not sure we want to put our bodies through back to back races so soon after.

  7. Alas, no glass slipper challenge for this princess! I did the Princess half in 2012 for the C2C and loved it! This year our big trip is for Wine & Dine (and completing another C2C). I second the bank account woes. I took a second job on the weekends just to pay for my racing habits!!!

    1. I hear you about the second job. The race weekends at Disney get very expensive with entry fees, hotels, food and of course a park pass!

  8. I am waiting on pins and needles to register for the Glass Slipper. I even convinced friend to do the 10K with me!
