Sashimi is my perfect pre-race meal. I get light, easily digestible protein from the fish and light, easily digestible carbs from a side of rice. I do gradual carb loading during the week before the race, so I don't feel the need to binge overload the night before.

I have a question. I have been a runner for 13 years but have never ran a marathon so I do not have any time to submit for the corral placement. How does the corral work? Last week I ran 17 miles and my pace was 10:14 per mile so it took me 2 hrs and 54 min to run it. I was suppose to do a half marathon in October but don't think it is gonna workout so not sure what I should do. Should I try to do a half and submit the time or should I just start in the last corral where they will probably put me. Again I am new to this whole marathon thing .

Disney will take a race result from a 10K all the way up to a Marathon distance. So if you can't run the Half in October, find a 10K or 15K instead. You can either submit the results via email until early November, or, just bring them with you at the Expo to have your corral placement changed.

I would say being in a corral with similarly paced runners is better than being in the last corral and having to pass hundreds of people and expending more energy weaving through them.

Definitely find something! Whenever you hear complaints from people that they were in a sea of walkers, it's usually people in your situation who should be in a high corral, but didn't do a race before. Corrals exist for a reason, and if everyone is in the right place, people are happier! Personally, I hate being run over by the back of the pack fast people with no time, and I know they hate having to work past the run/walkers in my corral.

At the expo when you pick up your bib. Your corral will be marked on the bib. Disney makes race waivers available online about a month before the event and I've seen people post pretty educated guesses at what the corrals are based on bib numbers, so you'll probably be able to get a good idea then.

And I echo everyone else - submit a proof of time if you can to help with lessening course crowding and so that you can start the race earlier!

It's kind of easy in the older days... About 3000 runners per corral. Last year the Goofy and relay numbers were separate from the main race and that created a little pre race confusion.

To add to what I said above, it looks like runDisney actually posted the corral assignments ahead of time for the Tower of Terror 10-miler...I wonder if they are going to post similar documents for other races going forward?

(under Final Race Instructions, there's a Bag Check section, then Corral and Bib Assignment. In this section is a link that says "View your corral placement!" which opens the document in the second link...and this set-up is exactly the same on the Marathon Weekend page so far, so I guess we'll see what information they decide to post in December):

And next year it'll change again without the relay...

Does WDW offer any kind of photo package for the Marathon? Meaning -- if you don't want to take your own character pictures but you want the castle pic, and the finish line pics --- do they do that by bib number, like the NYC marathon?

Thanks in advance.

Oh yes. Last year brightroom photography worked with Disney. There was a photo-op set up in front of the castle and an official finisher photo in front of a backdrop they set up. There were brightroom photographers at random points along the course and at most, but not all, of the character stops. I think the package itself cost $99 (for the marathon only, half is probably the same and I'm pretty sure there's a Goofy package for $50 more as well) and included 3 videos last year. I liked getting the videos since one of them was of me finishing, and since my husband couldn't make the trip he still got to "see" me race.

If you're going to get the package and REALLY want to maximize the amount of photos included, look through the lost & found section before ordering. These are photos not tied to a bib, and you may find yourself there. But be aware that this section contains THOUSANDS of pictures. I didn't even look last year.

Day before: pasta with marinara; pizza without fatty meats and light on the cheese. Big lunch, normal but early dinner--maybe a bagel late.

Morning of: 3+ hours before race I take in about 400 calories, and then no more until after the first few miles of the race. I eat something like a bagel with light cream cheese and a banana and some sport drink.

After? At WDW I eat my way around Epcot, taking extra time in Germany . Between the two Goofy events though I will probably opt for some pasta with chicken and maybe some Hawaiian pizza. After the Goofy half marathon I will try and consume a bunch of carb calories in the first 30 min after the race to increase carb reloading.

I am similar but will look for a little higher than normal fat intake the last couple days. Not the bad fatty meat stuff but add a few percentage points of fats from nuts, olive oil, etc. I do not load up on carbs. I will eat my dinner around 3-4 pm so that I know it does not sit on the tummy as I attempt to sleep.

Likewise about 3 hours pre-race I will have about4-500 Kcal. On race day it is something like a bagel with cream cheese (never touch the stuff any other day) , a banana, a couple cups of coffee and begin a bottle of sport drink. I differ slightly as I will sip the sport drink in the last hour pre-race and add a gel in the starting corral.

Post Race - Half setting up the next morning of Goofy... I take in 3-400 Kcal of a recovery drink (4:1 Carb/Protein). Shower then head out for an 11 am lunch. The lunch is farily well balanced and then again, a late afternoon dinner. After Sunday, I grab a couple slices of the resorts double pepperoni pizza. No way could I touch that except in the afterburn of a great marathon.

Just adding, that if you plan on stopping for character photos you may want to bring your own camera. It doubles the chances of getting a good photo. As good as ASI photographers are, they tend to be more of a candid photo which characters...ie. you may not know they snapped the photo.


As a word of courtesy.... Please do not cut across the course to get to a character. I have seen folks fall as the result of inconsiderate folks making a last minute dash to the character without looking. Likewise, when coming out of the Castle, just run your line. There are photographers on both sides of the path, running from side to side and trying to get as many photos as possible is just rude. If you want a posed photo, there are a set of photographers after coming off the ramp. Sad news is that most everyone running faster than a 12 minute mile will not get a good photo coming out of Cinderella Castle this year. It will still be dark for folks faster than this pace you it is really hit or miss for photos.
