    Hello, I am running in my first princess 1/2 marathon in Feb 2016. I really want to run in the Glass Slipper Challenge in 2017. Can you tell me what the pace requirements are for this challenge, for the 1/2 and the 10K? Thanks for your help. :)

    Welcome back, Monnica! 

    I'm so happy you are already making plans for the 2017 Glass Slipper Challenge held during the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend! Don't forget to mark your calendar, registration opens in July, and the Glass Slipper Challenge usually sells out first. 

    Pacing requirments for the Enchanted 10K and the Princess Half Marathon are the same at 16 minutes per mile. Also remember this 16 minute mile does not officially begin until the very last runner in the very last corral crosses the starting line. This means any runner ahead will have extra time built in on the race clock. However, please keep in mind this policy could change at anytime so I suggest trying to train at the recommended 15 minute mile pace, just to be sure - if you can manage a 14 minute mile, you would truly have no worries! 

    I hope this helps, Monnica! Please let us know if you have any additional questions, the runDisney Specislists are here to help you plan and prepare. 

    Just remember to be Faithful with your training and all your runDisney dreams can come true for you, too!
