I'm in. Night races are cool because they are just so different from Day / Morning races. I just hope that if we run through AK, that it could be a little bit lighted better. The wine & dine race had some dark spots that made it tough trying to pass people without worrying about your footing.

Hi everyone!
I'm putting us on the list! DH ran the half last month. It was our first trip to a Disney race. After seeing how far he's come, and seeing the great atmosphere of the shared experience at the Disney race for everyone, I have become motivated myself. DH just started running 18 months ago, and so far he's lost 50 pounds, feels better than ever, and has run in five half marathons. He even started in the A corral for the Disney half- I'm very proud of him!

I used to run when I was younger. I haven't run in many years though (both DH and I are in our mid-40's). But, I have faith that I can get there! I'm using this Tower of Terror 10-miler as my goal. To get myself started back up again, I've been doing the Cool Running C25K program. I'm in the middle of week 3 and loving it so far. I've even run in rain and snow. DH is being very supportive and motivational, and says he will gladly run the race with me if I stick with it. When I saw this race, I knew that this was the carrot I needed! I love Hollywood Studios, ToT is my favorite ride in the parks, and I am a night owl (most definitely NOT a morning person!!!). Don't even talk to me until I've had my . If we go (and it's all up to me sticking with my program), then we will make it an adults-only trip- our first trip without the kids! They have no idea we are even thinking of doing this. : So, I think that is plenty of motivation! It will also be our 15th wedding anniversary that month. Plenty of excuses to go on that trip now!

Is anyone else stalking the Run Disney page for more info. on this race? I wish they would release more information than just the date! I would like to see a cost and host hotels so I can plan!

I agree. It's very frustrating. Do they usually wait until the day of registration to release all of the details? I'm beginning to think that is what they are doing in this case. I've decided I'm doing this as well. I'm still not completely over my disappointment that they moved the Wine and Dine, but I love the Tower of Terror, and the opportunity to participate in an inaugural event is appealing. I just starting trying to do this back in October. Currently, I've worked up to 20/40 intervals and a few 30/30 intervals mixed in. My pace is right at 16 min/mile. Some days over, some days under. I have my longest run so far coming up this weekend of 4 miles. I know that doesn't sound like much, but I'm pleased with my progress. I feel like I'll be ready.

Any guesses how quickly the race will fill up? I think I have both DH plus a pal on board for ToT, but we have a lot of logistical details to get sorted.

Also, I know this race is technically new, but do you think it will boost park attendance significantly in the week before? I'd been eyeing late September for a trip anyway before finding out about ToT, but low crowds were the main incentive for that...

Yay! I've done several 10k, but this would be a big step up!

I don't think the race will significantly change the crowd levels the week leading up to the race or even that weekend. Epcot will be busy because the first weekend of Food & Wine always brings out the locals but I don't think the rest of the parks will see much of a spike.

I'm also waiting for the ToT registrations to open. We are forming a team from Studios Central, a site dedicated to all things DHS, and raising money for Give Kids the World. If anyone is interested here are the details.

As to the question of how fast it will fill, I'm not sure. I know that there are still spots available for the Princess Half-Marathon this month. Now as it being an inaugural race maybe more people will want to take advantage of that.

I find it frustrating too! I guess in 10 days they will have to announce some details!

It's all about going at your own pace! A year ago I couldn't run a mile, and ended up doing 3 5Ks over the summer. I've gotten lazy, but ready to get back in action for this one!

I will confess I have also been stalking the website waiting for more details.
Also will add in we booked hotel already, just hoping that it will be one of the host hotels, and the CM said are you sure there is a running event, all we have listed is one at Disneyland. Guess they haven't even shared info with the CM yet

Well I'm looking forward to a new course and new experience from Run Disney. The running bug has since bitten one of my sons and I hope to encourage him to run the ToT as his first race with me. Then on to the full in January!

Add me to the list of those who've been stalking the RunDisney site. I understand them not releasing the course just yet, but they could at least let us know how much registration is going to cost.

Yes, I'm also checking the runDisney site every few days!

10 more days! I understand registration opens on Feb 14!
I've already paid for a Toronto Half Marathon 2wks later.

After a nasty Wednesday hill training run in slushy greasy snow, I'm so looking forward to icefree & snowfree running! Come on late May!
