runDisney 101 Podcast

If this is your first or 50th runDisney event, you might want a refresher going into the weekend. 

We put together a 3-part runDisney 101 podcast that answers all the runDisney FAQs you typically have leading up to the race weekends.

When Will runDisney Princess Half Marathon Weekend Corrals/Waivers/Course Maps/Event Guides drop?

ETA: The course information showed up on February 9, 2023.

That just depends. The official line is 2 weeks before the race, but they’ve come out at the end of January, the beginning of February over the past years.

For the 2022 race weekend, the information was available on February 2, 2022.

Here’s a reminder of how things work each year:

Typically the runDisney event guides show up first, with the course maps included.

You can also find some information on start groups (corrals) inside the event guides (usually an indication of how many corrals will be set up for each race distance, but no details on placement). 

Corrals or Start Groups have NOT been released in advance for most recent races, but we hope to pull together some guesstimates as bib numbers are known.

If you want to check out what happened at the last race, here are the 2020 Princess Half Marathon Corrals, Waivers, Course Maps & Event Guide to give you some idea of what to expect.

What About Princess Sunrise Yoga?

We went to this event last year and had an excellent experience.

Here’s our review of the Princess Sunrise Yoga from 2022.

And here is everything we know about runDisney’s Sunrise Yoga for Princess Half weekend.

runDisney Race Security Details

Beginning with the 2022 Walt Disney World Marathon race weekend, all runners and spectators need to pass through Epcot security.

This does add extra mileage and extra time from the bus drop off and parking lot to get to the race start.

Our 5K in 2022 ended up being 5.86 miles after the race (and that was before we walked back to the car!).

You may need extra time to get from the parking lot to the race start.

Runners walking to security at Epcot park for runDisney race weekend.

Runners were dropped off in the parking lot by the race buses, private cars or Uber and Lyft.

Then they walked toward Epcot using the security scanners at the park entrance.

Runners then circled back and were directed to the family reunion area from Epcot.

Princess Half Marathon Weekend Corrals and Start Groups

runDisney has moved back to letters for your corral start group. There will be 6 corrals for the Princess Half Marathon (A-F).

Bib numbers can be found on the Expo Pass, but at this time there is not a Corral chart to reference.

You can use the 2020 corrals as a guide for this year’s race.

If you are familiar with how the runDisney corral system worked in the past, then you will know exactly how the system is working now.

Mini-waves are still being used inside each start group and those are not pre-determined or selected. If you want to be in an earlier wave, get to your start group when it opens.

Princess Half Marathon Corrals

**will be added later if available**

Sorry, 5K and 10K runners; corrals are not released for these races.

Important to note: Wave starts within smaller corrals means you want to go ahead and arrive in your corral EARLY.

Our most favorite thing runDisney has ever done was the change to PhotoPass photographers for a runDisney race weekend

Huge improvement in service and quality of photos since they started this- much appreciated!

You might want to know a little about the weather.

You should know that the weather in February in Florida has been all over the map.

There’s been sleet, thunderstorms, lightning, below-freezing temps, and even up into the high 80s with 100% humidity, on the half marathon race day.


Current weather predictions for Princess Half Marathon Weekend: too early to tell!

But we’ll keep you posted.

The 5k is my first runDisney race! I am very excited but a little nervous as my practice runs are clocking in at about 17:30 per mile. Do they take the 16 per mile pace super seriously for the 5k?

Not *as* serious for the 5K. But you'll want to get to the corral early and just keep moving! I haven't personally heard of anyone being swept or not allowed to finish if they are medically able to, but I have heard that rD may give a golf cart ride closer to the finishline for some runners if the time gets too far along. Have a GREAT time!!!
