    I am hoping to run the Disney Princess Glass Slipper Challenge in 2016 for my 30th birthday. I am a single mom and I will be bringing my 3 year old son with me. I was wondering if you were able to run with a stroller during the Disney races?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Whitney! 

    I'm excited to hear you are interested in participating in the 2016 Glass Slipper Challenge. I think this enchanted race will make for a fairytale birthday. 

    Unfortunately strollers are prohibited from being on course for all runDisney race events. Once upon a time they were allowed during the 5K race events, but never for the half marathons or 10K events. With 27,000 runners navigating various terrains and starting their magical races in the dark, it's for everyones safety. 

    However, I do want to suggest looking into the Disney-endorsed, in-room childcare services of Kid's Nite Out for your little prince. These certified childcare providers are a great resource for you while you enjoy your races. And with a 2:45am wake-up time for the half marathon, your son can stay sound asleep. For more information, select the highlighted link above. And book early! Race weekends are always a busy time for their services. 

    I hope this helps, Whitney! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you may have.
