    I'd like to do the Prin 1/2 Marathon in 2015. Do they have tranportation to get you to the 5:30AM start at Epcot the day of the race? Also, does the expo event have princess costume gear to purchase for the race, or is it best to bring from home?Thanks

    Greetings, Heather! 

    I hope you are excited to participate in your first Disney Princess Half Marathon. I have a feeling it won't be your last runDisney event, they are quite addicting. 

    Transportation to all race events will be provided for runners and spectators staying at a Walt Disney World Resort "Host Hotel". Although host hotel information for the 2015 event has not yet been released, I feel certain all Walt Disney World resorts will be considered hosts and be providing transportation, just like this year. I also want to suggest keeping an eye on the Travel Tab on the runDisney website. This is where travel packages and host hotel information will be available as we get closer to registration opening on July 15th. 

    When it comes to your race costume, you will find a variety of vendors offering princess-inspired running gear while attending Disney's Fit for a Princess Health & Fitness Expo. However, I highly recommend bringing a race costume from home that you've planned out and tested for comfort. It's never a good idea to run in anything new on race day, it may rub, or cut into your skin in ways that could actually prevent you from finishing the race-- no costume is worth that possibility.

    I hope this information is helpful, Heather! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any additional questions you may have as you plan and prepare for the 2015 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend. I am here to help make your race experience as enchanted as possible.

    Happy Training!
