Tower of Terror 2013 - So confused!

Printed our waivers for the WDW half this morning. Second page is a list of all the upcoming RunDisney races - showing ToT to be held on Sept 27-28 2013.

Then I printed the Final Race Instructions - where it lists ToT to be Oct 2013.

Which is it? Anyone know?

There is an Air Force 1/2 Marathon in September that for today only, there is a $10 off special. If the ToT is in Sept, we'll pass on the Air Force. If it's in Oct, we'll do the Air Force one too. Grrrrrr...

I do not think anyone outside of runDisney knows at this point in time. The September weekend date has been published several times; however, the October placeholder is the most recent date published. I would normally say the original date of September would be accurate, but last year Disney changed up the fall season with the addition of the ToT and moving of the W&D. I would bet that the race folks are reviewing the heat issues with the 10-miler and attempting to determine if a move should occur. Obviously this decision comes too late for your discount.

Sorry a long was of saying I don't know

Thanks Coach. This is what I suspected. Nuts...going to have to err on the side of caution and take a pass on the Air Force/Ohio run until we see how these dates all play out.

The Air Force half was one of those races I did this past year...cool...what they do before they race starts. I mark it in my book as a 'checked' and done that.

Was kind of hoping the Oct 5th date wasn't it because I'm planning the Spartan Beast that weekend in Wisconsin.

I'm all for October. In fact, I want it to happen while DH and I are celebrating our 10th anniversary at the world (10/17-10/20/13). I mean, NOTHING is more romantic than running a 10 mile race together!!!!

EDITED 1/24: Based on the entry fee pricing tiers posted on RunDisney, I am now guessing registration will open on 2/26, rather than the two earlier dates I mentioned.


They haven't announced yet when registration opens, that I have seen anyway.

I believe that registration opened last year on Valentine's Day, though not 100%. So, if it opens up mid-February again, and Disney seems to typically have registrations open on a Tuesday, it would seem that either 2/12 or 2/19 would be a good guess as to when it might open. But, with the race a week later this year as well, perhaps even 2/26.

These are simply guesses for now though! I would expect an announcement pretty soon, I would think.

From what I heard, early in the party it was easy to access the big rides and even ride multiple times. When I finished (a little more than 2 hours after race start) it seemed fairly crowded but, honestly, some of that may have been all of the runners on the ground. The heat and humidity were oppressive and there were lots of sick and exhausted runners post-race. I was so bummed that we didn't get to do anything fun in the park after because all that I was capable of was stumbling back down the path to the Yacht Club.

This year we are (very) tentatively planning to do Wine & Dine. I am hoping November offers more forgiving temperatures so that I can enjoy the after-party

Just booked a trip for the Oct dates and hoping to run the ToT race. It will be my first ever big race. BFF is running it with me for moral support. I'm so excited although I'm a little sad to hear about how crowded the party was last year. Hoping for the best!

I enjoyed the race last year. Didn't think it was too bad at all. I'm really looking forward to it again this year.
