Cinderella Running Costume

November 15, 2019 by The Girls

A Cinderella Running Costume is truly a classic, in more ways than one. Did you know that Cinderella, or at least a tale similar to the Disney classic, has been around since the 1st Century BC? It is said that an ancient Greek geographer created a story about a slave girl from Egypt whose sandal was stolen by an eagle. A king recovers the sandal, admiring its beautiful shape, and goes on a quest to find the owner of the shoe and make her his wife.

Also, did you know that Cinderella hadn’t always worn a glass slipper? In fact, in some of the more popular published versions she wore a magic ring or fur slippers which become lost and need to be returned to her.

If you are looking for a Cinderella running costume for an upcoming race, maybe even during the runDisney Princess Half Marathon where she is the key character of the race, it may be easier to tackle the miles in running shoes as opposed to glass slippers.

Along with trading the glass slippers for running shoes, we’d also suggest swapping the ball gown for more runner-friendly attire. Luckily for you, we have an easy to run in Cinderella running costume idea which won’t have you leaving any pieces of your outfit behind on the course.
