    I'm planning to do the Princess 1/2 in 2013 to get my coast to coast after running the Tink 1/2. We plan to stay at a host hotel, race morning can my husband and son with stroller ride the buses with the runners to the start ??

    Hi Vicki!  I got my first coast-to-coast medal this year!  It was very exciting and is now my favorite medal!

    Bus transportation is for runners and spectators.  Keep in mind that you will have to be there really early.  The buses continue to run throughout the morning if your husband and son would like to sleep a little longer and then meet you later at the race.  They will not be able to go to the actual starting line.  The start line is a good little walk from where they would leave you.  It might be easier for them to plan on seeing you run through Magic Kingdom around Mile 6.  They can take the bus transportation to the Epcot parking lot and then use the monorails to get to Magic Kingdom--- theme park tickets are NOT required for their entrance.  You may also want to check out the chEAR squad packages that will be offered for race day.  To find out more, go to this year's Princess Half Marathon website  and click on "spectator resources".  Depending on what package you go with, you can get priority seating at the castle and at the finish line.  The platinum package also offers use of the Race Retreat tent while they wait for you to get to the finish.  There is food, drinks, sofas, televisions, characters, bathrooms and much more in the tent.  It is a great way for them to relax while you are racing.

    I hope this helps!  Let me know if you have any more questions on your quest for the coast-to-coast!  Good Luck!
