Disney Princess Half Marathon Running Costume Peek

The Disney Princess Half Marathon is finally here! Time for the running costume reveal!

Today, I ran the Disney Princess Enchanted 10K as Shredded and Torn Cinderella. It was a bit too cold for my costume as planned—barely 40 degrees!—so I added some arm sleeves.

And best moment of the day: my photo opp with Cinderella! We got a great before and after shot. Thanks Fairy Godmother! Cinderella looks much better after a little magic.

But what will I wear to the Disney Princess Half Marathon? On Friday, my sister and I ran as Disney’s most infamous sisters—Anastasia and Drizella.

So for the half-marathon, we’re sticking with the sister theme and running as Disney’s most famous sisters—Anna and Elsa! It’s perfect for us—our hair, coloring, and even temperaments each suit one of the Frozen sisters. She’s older and definitely an Elsa. I’m younger and totally an Anna. Match made in runDisney heaven.

Here’s a peek at my tutu, made for me by the wonderful Missy at TutuDaLoo. This is her new Anna tutu design. You can find it and her other beautiful creations in her Etsy store.

If you see us at the race, please say hello! I’m sure we’ll find lots of other Frozen ladies out there. Have a great race, everyone!

    I saw you from afar at the 10K, I loved the costume! Finished my first 1/2 on Sunday and think Disney has hooked me!

      Thank you and Congratulations, Michelle! What a fun race to pick for your first half. I heard the announcers say that half the field were first-timers. So glad you enjoyed it! Hope it went well for you!
