During every race weekend, Run Disney offers a Family 5K race in addition to the other race or races they have. This was the first year that the Royal Family 5K was held on a Friday morning. This is a fun run and even thought there is a clock at the finish line, your finish time is not recorded. When we first started running this race several years ago there weren't even any corrals. I think last year may have been the first year for corral placement.
The Royal Family 5K will always be a special race for both of us because it was our first Run Disney race ( and Meranda's first race ever). We ran this race with just our mom this year.
Here are just a few reasons why we like this race so much!
All ready for Cinderella's Royal Family 5k on Friday morning!
1. We love the fact that everyone is encouraged to dress up! Only at a Disney race can you dress up as a princess to run and no one bats an eye!
2. Even though it is a fun run, Disney still does it up big at the start line and finish line. Expect fireworks at the start, and a big finish at the end!
3. Another favorite thing about the Royal Family 5K is that the course is through Epcot which makes for some great picture opportunities.
4. And of course the characters along the course are always a favorite!
