    Do you know when the runDiney 2015 dates will be posted? Is there any big difference between the Disney 1/2 marathon, and the Princess one? Are the expo products the same? Trying to figure our what race is best for me. Thanks for your help.

    Hi, Maura! 

    When it comes to releasing race dates, there isn't one specific date in which they are all released. In general, each events date comes out on a staggered schedule, usually after the completion of that years event, or in conjunction with a special announcement. The best way to keep up with race dates and details is to sign-up for runDisney email notifications. This is a great way to stay in the loop and it's free to sign-up. 

    When trying to chose between the Walt Disney World® Half Marathon and Disney's Princess Half Marathon, it all comes down to personal taste. While the expo products will be similar in offerings, the Princess Half Marathon will offer a few additional vendors geared toward celebrating the accomplishments of female runners, where the Walt Disney World® Half Marathon focuses on products/vendors for both genders. If you're all about the empowerment of women and enjoy running amongst your peers, the Princess Half is an excellent option, but if you prefer a more unisex feel in your races the Walt Disney World® Half Marathon would be your best bet. Having run both several times, I enjoy the experience of Disney's Princess Half Marathon. I hope this information is useful in helping you make your decision, Maura. Please do not hesitate to ask any additional runDisney questions you may have. 

    Happy Training!
