Good news.. Talked to RunDisney this am about this. RW challenge will not automatically be in Corral A or B (unless their proof of time supports it). They said last year someone made a promise of A or B so they had to go with it.. not this year.

What they said will happen this year is that "preferred corral" actually means that you will be moved up 1 maybe 2 corrals from the proof of time you submit. If you submit no proof of time, you will be moved up 1 or two corrals from your estimate.

I think this is a much smarter way to do it.

i wonder what galloway's training will look like. probably won't be able to stick with the 3x/week workouts like i did for the marathon for the dopey. wonder how he will alter his goofy workouts.

i think the whole family will do the 5k. we'll be in the stroller division so that part of my dopey challenge will be a walk

No stroller division this year. I emailed run Disney and they emailed me back the following.

Thanks for your email. Due to previous safety issues, we are no longer
offering a stroller division for any of our runDisney events, including
the 5K.

-runDisney

Thought I would let you or anyone else know. Last year there were real little ones walking, so depending on the age of the children they can probably walk it.

Hi All! I registered today with a code and link that a DVC passed along to me. I am hearing comments that people are saying that Run Disney may withdraw those who registered today that are not DVC. Has anyone on this board heard that? My credit card was charged, I received an active.com receipt and confirmation email. I am probably being a bit paranoid, but I just wanted to make sure I got in, and when I was passed along the information from a DVC member, and when it allowed me to both sign up and use the code, I decided to see if it worked-and it did!

Anyone know anything about this or hear anything? Thanks in advance!

I really dont think he will change it much. Really the only thing different from goofy would be the 10k on Friday. Thursday is already the 5k (30-45 minutes) So that just means the 10k. Granted that 6.2 miles is nothing to sneeze at, but I dont see him changing it that much.

I haven't heard anything but I don't think there's really going to be anyway they can do that. As far as I could tell there was no verification for AP members and that opened today as well. :-/

Sadly, that's about the only thing they do well anymore. Sigh.

It depends on the year. I think it was hailing/snowing in 2010.
