I’m just popping in quickly while Tom is sleeping- I’m blogging in the hotel lobby with a cup of coffee before we hit the Disney Parks for day two. Although I’ll be doing two proper blog posts about our Run Disney experiences, I thought I would just share some pics from our Glass Slipper Challenge.
The Glass Slipper Challenge is two days of races, a 10K on the Saturday and a half marathon on the Sunday, totally 19.3 miles over the weekend. The races run around Disney property, including through some of the parks. However the majority of the races are run on the roads. There are characters along the course that you can stop and have your photo with, a great way to get character pics without the HUGE lines within the parks.
I ran in fancy dress for both races, as Tinkerbell for the 10K and as Minnie Mouse for the half marathon. I also made Tom wear Mickey ears for the half- I’m not sure he was overly impressed but he was a good sport!
The races start at 5.30am, which means a 3am wake up to get the shuttle buses to the start line, however the brilliant organisation means the whole process is really smooth. There were plenty of loos, water stations and medical tents along the way.
Have a great day!
