This weekend, the Central Florida area is experiencing warmer weather and higher humidity than usual during this time of year. Those participating in the Disney Princess Half Marathon should plan accordingly for the race.
Here are a few important tips to consider:
Closely monitor your pace and do not overextend yourself. This may not be the event to attempt your personal best.
Stay well hydrated prior to the race and maintain fluid status with alternating water and electrolyte-based hydration options throughout your race and the entire race weekend.
Choose light clothing/costumes for the race, and ensure any headwear is breathable and allows heat to escape.
Slow down and ask for assistance at any signs of heat illness, including dizziness, light-headedness or nausea. Heed these warnings seriously.
As a reminder, all medical stations will have the appropriate flag color displayed according to existing heat conditions. For more information, please reference the Event Safety page in the Digital Event Guide.
Any adjustments to the race are at the discretion of the Event Management team and are for everyone's safety.
All of us at runDisney hope you have a safe, magical run!
