    I want to run the princess 5k in February. Will my 8 year old daughter be allowed to run with me?

    Hi, Sara! 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and welcome to the wonderful world of runDisney. I love hearing from guests that are interested in running events with their children! Nothing creates a magical memory more than crossing the finish line of a runDisney race with family. 

    The age limit for the all runDisney 5K events is 5 years old, so your little princess is more than eligible to participate in this enchanted race with you. I hope you two plan on dressing up for the occasion :) 

    And don't forget to mark your calendar for July 14th at Noon, EST. This is when registration opens to the public for the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend and it's sure to sell out fast! You will want to register you and your daughter at that time to ensure your spots in next year's race. 

    I hope this helps, Sara! And please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any additional questions you may have as you begin planning your runDisney-cation. I am here to help you have a magical experience.
