Lace up your glass slippers! The first Disneyland Paris Princess Run will take place May 8-10, 2020. Sign up to enjoy one or more races with festivities all weekend long at Disneyland Paris. Discover the Magic of “Euro Disney” and take home a few metallic souvenirs to hang on your medal rack.
The new 2-race Disneyland Paris Princess Run Challenge is reminiscent of the Glass Slipper Challenge in the USA and pays tribute to Cinderella in its inaugural year, as her film recently celebrated its 70th anniversary. The 5k, 8, and kids races each celebrate different Princesses from the Disney Universe and all races will feature Disney characters cheering you towards the finish lines inside the Disneyland Paris Resort.
If you are looking for more Disneyland Paris fun, the 5th annual Disneyland Paris Run Weekend will take place September 24-27 2020 with “breathtaking challenges and iconic runs,” says the Disney Parks Blog.
