Rapunzel Running Costume Assembly

Assembling your Rapunzel running costume is pretty self-explanatory...

Embrace the Sparkle with Sparkle Athletic Running Skirts:

The first step to creating a princess-worthy running costume is to select your Sparkle Athletic skirt. To capture Rapunzel's vibrant personality, choose a Sparkle Athletic skirt in shades of lavender or purple - like our Tangled Flowers running skirt. The shimmering fabric of the skirts will make you feel like a true princess on the racecourse. Plus, the lightweight fabric of the skirts will keep you comfortable throughout your race. Or, if you'd prefer to rock a pair of shorts - our Tangled Flowers spandex running shorts are the perfect choice!

Find a Top Fit for Royalty:

Complete your Rapunzel-inspired look by selecting a purple running top to pair with your chosen Sparkle Athletic skirt. Consider something that is moisture-wicking, & we'd suggest you opt for a design that allows for ease of movement while running. It's all about capturing the essence of your favorite princess while still prioritizing comfort and performance.

Crown Your Look with a Running Visor:

Every princess needs a crown, and in this case, one of our running visors can be the perfect royal accessory for your Rapunzel running visor. The visor will not only shield your eyes from the sun but also add a touch of elegance to your running attire - you'll feel like true running royalty as you cross the finish line.
