  • Meghan DeHart

    Are there any 5k or 10ks in 2018 for the princess race in February?

  • Hi Megan! Events for the 2018 Disney Princess Half have not been posted yet – but those events I do believe are standard for the race weekends. Of course, anything can change, but I would think they would be included in the weekend once it is officially announced 🙂 ~maria
