Being a hero is not just about the happily ever after at the end of the story.

In 2024, the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend invites you to join in a celebration of the ways we are all heroes, every day. Because each step forward, each act of kindness, each smile at a stranger… these are the moments that define your character—and can change the world.


Join runDisney for a race (or three!) and discover a brave, new hero or heroine within with a whole lotta heart. Together, let’s celebrate all of life’s courageous moments––start lines, finish lines and everything in between.
