Left: Special pink medal for Tinker Bell/Princess Right: Regular Coast to Coast
If you're planning on doing the special Coast to Coast challenge, you can sign up for both races on June 11th when the Princess registration opens. Only a limited number of slots will be open, but if you miss it, you can still register for Tinker Bell when it opens July 9th. See runDisney's blog post for more information.
My first thought was "OMG! This is awesome! I have to do it!" My second thought was "this is going to be really expensive, huh?"
Let's do a little cost analysis. (Apparently I'm really into analyzing things lately... I blame that on all the reports at work.)
Enchanted 10k ($95): The other 10ks that runDisney has offered, like the DL 10k and WDW Minnie 10k, have been priced at $95, so I would assume this would be similar.
Princess Half ($150): Each year, registration prices increase. The Princess was $130 in 2012 and $140 in 2013. If the trend continues, the half would be $150.
Glass Slipper Challenge ($255): runDisney has only offered one other challenge with similar distances of a 10k and half (Dumbo Double Dare in DL) and pricing started at $280. The cost of Dumbo was the 10k ($95) + the half ($175) plus $10, probably for the extra shirt and medal. The Glass Slipper Challenge would be the 10k ($95) + the half ($150) plus $10, for the extra shirt and medal.
Pink Coast to Coast (FREE*): Okay, so it's not "free." It's more like "Free with purchase of both the Tinker Bell and Princess half registration fees."
Is it worth it to you? Will you be signing up?
