Disney recently announced their new medals for runDisney’s upcoming event: 2023 Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend!

This 15th-anniversary special event is coming to Walt Disney World Resort from February 23-26, 2023, and will center on the princesses we’ve come to know and love. Disney’s mission behind this event is truly inspiring:

Each race weekend event takes inspiration from our royal women and everyone behind them, from whom they draw their strength. The people they lean on, the people they care for, the people who came before them, and those who believe in what each of them can achieve. When these women are at their strongest, we see the inspiration behind their strength: the faces of their community.

Let’s take a look at some of the events taking place on that weekend and the medals that participants can win in the races. The medals for the race earlier this year were beautifully crafted, and the ones for next year are stunning as well!

These races and the Disney Princess Yoga event are currently sold out, but those wishing to participate can still sign up for the virtual equivalent of the races and receive these participant medals. Registration info and cost for the virtual races can be found on the runDisney site. The policy info for the virtual races can be found there as well, which includes information on registration, medals, and race times.
