Throughout a runDisney race, there is sure to be a lot of excitement. With character photo stops, spectators and DJs pumping music, there are many magical moments. However, each race course also brings a unique experience along with it. This is our series on the best runDisney course moments!
The Walt Disney World Half Marathon and Princess Half Marathon follow the same course, taking you through the Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Along with characters and entertainment, there are a few moments that are sure to make you smile. Take a look!
Main Street USA – Any race that takes you along Main Street USA with Cinderella Castle in front of you is an absolute magical moment! Take in the cheers from the spectators and enjoy the run down Main Street. Running through the castle is pretty magical too!
Overpass Bridge – After running along World Drive on your way back to Epcot, the course takes you up a banked on-ramp. While that part isn’t so magical, be sure to look down at World Drive once you are on the overpass! The sea of runners is an amazing sight and one that is sure to give you an extra boost as you head into the last few miles.
Epcot Area – For the last mile or so, the course takes you into Epcot. Although you don’t get to run through World Showcase, you do get a nice out and back in Future World. The energy is electric as the runners celebrate the last mile of their half marathon journey! (There is also an inspirational surprise when you head backstage toward the finish line!)
The 13.1 mile journey through Magic Kingdom and Epcot is a great experience for all. Be sure to enjoy every mile and take in the cheers, entertainment and magic!
