Any hope of getting BCV at 7mo for Marathon Weekend?

We're booked for Kidani (which i lurv), but all races start in EP and it would be much easier walking over.

I signed up for the Dopey Challenge and will be in races all four days, so proximity would be nice!

I could be wrong, but I don't believe you can walk to the start line even if you are staying in the Epcot Resort area.

The start line for all races (I believe) is on Epcot Center Drive, and the park will be closed at the beginning so cutting through the park isn't an option.

More importantly, I think the finish line for all races is inside EP, which is probably more important that getting to the start. I can limp back to our room at BCV.

You won't be able to cut through the park without park admission. And it probably won't be open yet when the 5K and 10K are finished. The finish line is outside Epcot in the parking lot. The 5k starts at 6:15AM and the 10K starts at 5:30AM

I did the Family 5K several years ago and our start and finish were in the parking lot, but we ran through backstage Epcot behind Test Track and into the park just past there, around the World Showcase and out the front to the finish line.

Fron BCV, you'll be taking the bus both ways without park admission.

You will have to get to the start using another method. If the park is open and you have a ticket you can walk home

We have stayed at AKL and OKW and Disney transport was very good

No, you cannot walk to start line from Epcot resorts. The only one it is sort of possible but really shouldn't is OKW. I think it will be tough to get BC at 7 months but maybe not. I've stayed at many different resorts for race weekends and the transportation has been quite smooth from them all.
