Until you've been to a runDisney race, you can't quite believe how monumental, exuberant, fun, and, well, magical the event is. Being surrounded by nearly 30,000 women runners, most of whom are festooned in sparkles, wings, tiaras, and all things bright and shining, is an unparalleled experience--and that's just the expo! Come race day, at the start under pre-dawn darkness, you think you're dreaming. But then you get to run through the Magic Kingdom and Epcot, and you know it's so much better than any visions that might float through your head.
If you've been dreaming to have this experience, we can make it become a reality for two of you. Each winner will receive:
-a free entry to the 2014 runDisney Princess Half Marathon;
-a two-night stay at a Walt Disney World® Resort;
-a 2-Day Magic Your Way® with Park Hopper® Option theme park ticket.
What each winner will not get from us: airfare; meals; time off from work; childcare; and perhaps most difficult to procure, "permission" from your family members to attend, if you choose to fly solo.
Even without the airfare, meals, etc., this is an amazing prize package and we're thrilled to be giving it away. Before you enter, though, please keep your feet on the ground for a few moments, and determine whether you can get yourself to Orlando, Florida, for a weekend in a little more than two months. (The race is Sunday, February 23, 2014, and you'll need to pick up your race packet the day before.) Take a look at your calendar and your checkbook, and pragmatically ask yourself if you can swing this trip.
If your answer is a Magic Kingdom-size yes, here's how to enter this running giveaway: In the Comments section below this post on our website, tell us which Disney character you love best, and why. It doesn't have to be which character you'd dress as come race day if you win (come on, you'll have to wear a costume--we will be!), but which character is closest to your heart. (If you are reading this via email, do not just hit reply with your answer; you must go to our website to enter via Comments link under post.)
[Some fine print for this magical prize.] This sweepstakes is open to those over 18; no geographic limitations as long as you can get yourself to Orlando. Sweepstakes begins on 12/18/13 and ends on 12/26/13; the two winners will be announced on 12/28/13. One entry per person. The value of each prize is $1,250. The number of eligible entries received determines the odds of winning. Void where prohibited by law.
