runDisney's Princess Half Marathon Weekend is NEXT WEEK and we are so ready to put on the biggest Crowned Athletic fashion show of the year! Keep reading for our entire weekend schedule, how to participate both in person and virtually, and some Crowned extras to keep the weekend magical!
First things first - just like usual, the Crowned Crew will be racing together both in person and virtually all weekend long! For each race morning, even if you're not officially registered, you can still race with us! Scroll to the bottom for all your bibs and virtual medals then tag @crownedathletics in all your Instagram posts so we can repost everyone just like we are running together!
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings: Race and yoga with us in-person or virtually! If you see me at yoga and on the 5k and 10k courses I'll have free goodies and discount codes to hand out.
Thursday, February 24th Princess Yoga: When facing the castle, meet on the left side of the hub center circle in line with Adventureland
Friday, February 25th 12 - 6pm EST: Crowned Athletics Pop-up Shop at the Marriott Bonnet Creek in the Heron Room
Sunday, February 27th morning: Crowned Cheer area! Join us just before mile 12 at the Epcot bus drop off to cheer on our Crowned Crew half marathoners
Sunday, February 27th 5pm EST: Crowned Crew social meetup - it's time to party! Join us in Epcot over the steps of Venice in front of the Italy pavilion for some socializing and celebration!
We are creating a custom Princess Weekend themed animated filter for the entire weekend's festivities! Use during your race, in the parks, at our pop-up shop, on your virtual course, EVERYWHERE! You will be able to find and use it in the "PRINCESS 2022" highlight on our Crowned Athletics Instagram page as soon as it's available!
On Thursday, February 24th morning, if you'd like to do the Sunrise Princess Yoga as a Crowned Crew, we will be meeting on the left side of the hub center circle when facing the castle. This is in line with the pathway to Adventureland. Of course, things could change when we arrive and see how crowded it is, but we will try to gather as a crew!
Friday, February 25th from 12 - 6pm located at the Marriott Bonnet Creek Hotel Convention Center in the Heron Room on the second floor. Try on and shop at discounted prices our latest princess matching set designs and other assorted tank tops! My Inspiring Balloons (a local black woman owned small business) will be decking out our space along with music, refreshments, and more! We recommend either bus transportation from the parks/disney springs, lyft/uber, or driving. We will have vouchers for 50% off parking at the pop-up (so $15 total).
We will be cheering on all our half marathoners at Epcot's bus drop off area just before Mile 12 and entering Epcot's backstage. Look for our Crowned specific signs and come say hi whether you're running or cheering! Keep an eye on our Instagram stories in case our location has to change last minute.
It's time to party! Sunday, February 27th at 5pm - we will meet over the steps of Venice in front of the Italy pavilion for some socializing and lots of celebration. Make sure to grab some food and drink on your way over - we've ended up hanging out until Harmonious at 9pm every time!
Virtually Race with us:
1. Do yoga and run/walk any distance of your choice at any time of day on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday February 24th-27th
2. Right click to download and print or virtually paste the graphics below onto your race photos.
3. Tag @crownedathletics and use #racewithcrowned to race along with others
4. We have the most fun running virtually when we look for things in our neighborhood that remind us of runDisney races - ie: castles, character stops, cone alley, "pardon our pixie dust" construction areas, etc. We love seeing your creativity!
