Does anyone know if you can convert the discounted park passes to non-expiration ones?

I don't think so as they have to be used around the time of the race.

Just registered. I had a Southwest credit I need to use up by mid-October so what the heck. This will be a nice little break while training for the Goofy in January.

I need to register. I did a 10k today that I plan to use to submit a time. I guess I don't have to wait until the official times are posted since I know my finish time.... but I thought I would wait.

Now, I see fares have come down on SW... and I am so tempted to book my return trip. (booked the flight down already) Thing is... the fare that is cheap is 2 days AFTER my friends check out and when I planned to also leave. Now... the day we are set to leave... the lowest fare is $324. 2 days later... $121. So... $200 less... but then I have to pay for a room for two nights. (not to mention food) That might just be a breakeven point....

Now to decide to register this week or get that fare!

How does it work submitting a time from a prior race? I haven't done a race yet but what length should I look for in the coming months and how long do I have before the race to get my time in?

If you want to enter before official times are posted.... Just state your time and the name of the race on the entry form. Just that simple. Or, you can furnish the official time link later.

First, you only need a proof if you are estimating a time quicker than the standard on the entry form (sub 2 hour I believe). For a race to qualify, it must be a race of 10k (6.2 miles) or longer held later than 7/1/11. The easiest way to submit the proof of time is at entry, but you can email the proof after entry and anytime up to about 4-6 weeks pre-race. If your best race is later than that, simply bring the proof of time with you to the expo and head to Runners Relations after picking up your bib.

I've done 2 other halves and found it helpful to submit a time even if I'm only a few minutes faster just to bump up a corral or two. Lets me enjoy the race and character stops rather than worry about being swept.

Completely new to this, so this may be a silly question: why would you worry more about being swept in a later corral? Doesn't it depend on your pace (max 16min/mi), no matter what corral you're in? Is it a matter of potentially being slowed down by other runners in the later corrals?

I think it's a 16 minute pace from the time the last runner crosses the start line giving you a cushion if you're in a corral or two up. However, anyone else please correct me of I'm wrong.

Yes...

The sweepers travel at a time equivalent to a 16 minute pace from when the last runner starts. A little off race, but if a runner in the marathon in January could start in corral A instead of the last corral they would have approx 8 hours to finish since it takes about an hour to start all waves. In the 10 miler, the start period may be 25 minutes... But if a runner could get at the very front of the line, they would have an approximate 18.5 minute pac allowance.

I see -- thanks! Seems a little nutty... giving "an edge" of sorts to those who "need" it least!!
