- Hi Laurie!
Well, I got tears in my eyes just reading this! The Princess Half Marathon with your daughter will definitely be a magical moment for you. I don't have a daughter, but I ran it this year with a friend and HER daughter, and it was definitely a special day for them:)
The corrals for the Princess Half Marathon have not been finalized yet. Generally, there are 2-3 minutes in between corral starts. RunDisney has recently added more corrals in order to spread the runners out and have less crowding on the course. I actually LOVE the new, smaller corrals.
My guess is that there will be between 15-20 corrals for the Princess Half. If this is the case, then your corral will potentially start 45 minutes to an hour after the first corral, which will begin at 5:30 a.m.
This may sound like a long time, but it actually passes rather quickly. There will be a celebration at the start of each corral and you will then move forward as you await your turn.
It's a great time for some pre-race stretching, and more importantly--some pre-race photos! Definitely snap some before you get sweaty:)
I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions as your race approaches!
