I signed up with my 6 yr old to run the 5k with me, since I have no one to watch him he will be joining me! He also wants to do the kids dash. We're both excited plus were adding a couple days in at the parks

But the one big downside to staying over on Harbor is that we have to go through security on the way back. I really, really hate that part, especially if the lines are long. I get that they need to check bags, but we're not going into the park, we just want to get back to our hotel, take a shower and relax for a few minutes. And they will check our bags even though they are see through and can tell we just ran a race. I keep telling them in the post race surveys that they need to add a runners' only line so we can just keep going.
Explain this to me, please. I haven't been to DL since I was a wee babe so I don't remember the lay of the land. Are you saying that walking back to HoJo for example requires going through the Parks? Can you go around it and not need to go through security? We don't finish in a park, right?

And are the parks typically open by the time the runners are finished? In the Tink case- we are starting at 5am, so even with A-E corrals (assuming they keep the same set up, but it could be a bigger race this year) going off 6 min apart, the last corral should be starting 5:24, right? Last runners off the course by 9ish. Does DL open at 9 during the winter?

Just trying to picture how the flow post race goes. Thank you!

DL and CA share a large esplanade. In this open area esplanade, there are ticket booths and the entrances to both parks. Security is set up on each end of the esplanade, not at the individual parks. To get to/from HoJos, you'll have to walk through security, through the esplanade, and back out of the other security side. I'm pretty sure security opens 1 hour prior to park opening.

Me and several of my friends are in for the 5K and half marathon. We want to keep our legacy status.

Here is a photo of the esplanade between the parks (DL north CA south). The green tents on the far east & west are security.

Also, last year I was in E corral because it was my first race. I started at about 6:15 (race began at 5:45). If people get about 3:45 to finish, that would be 10:00. DL opened at 9 am this year. I'm thinking you'd have to be finished by 7-715 am if you want to get snacks and photos and head back before security sets up. I bet they'll be there at 8am.

Have fun! We're signing my DDs (8 & 6) for the 5k. They've done kids triathlons, but this will be their first distance run. They talked my mom into running with them. She was recently diagnosed with COPD, so I'm hoping they will have fun and be able to finish. Great reason to get her to do some light training exercising!

I went ahead and signed DD5 up for the kids dash last night. I'm not positive we'll be able to make the trip down on friday, our original plan was a saturday drive, but just in case we can I wanted to have her registered because I know she would love it. Worst case scenario I just bought her a $20 shirt but best case scenario we go down a day early and she gets to participate!

Hi all! *wave*

I'm registered for the half and the 5k. I'm coming down from Vancouver, Canada and staying at the Disneyland Hotel as a treat for myself.

Does anyone know how the timing for the corrals works? I haven't got any recent races so I have to run one and send my time in but I don't want to be in the last corral so I want to know how fast I have to go! lol! I think they said it can be a 10k for proof of time. Is that correct?

Yes, 10K or longer to get corral placement. you only need proof if you think you are finishing before 2:45. So if that's you, yes, you want to run a 10K or longer.

You can email them the info (we did a C&P of the race result from the website) to rundisney, but they usually have a cut off date for this information. Check the official website for that info. I didn't see it up there yet, but it might be posted later.

You should also print out and bring with you the information. If you think you should be moved up to a higher corral then you are placed in at the expo, you can turn that info into them there.

I have no idea the break downs. I asked on another thread and someone said 2:45 got them into C corral last year. Every year it could change- say a lot of FAST runner shows up this year. Then they will bump the people who were in B last year back to C. Say those fast people don't do Tink- then that frees up more slots for the slower runners to move up in the corrals. It's a fluid process I think from year to year, so we won't know for sure until the waivers are posted. Even then, it's numbers, and you can guess where you might be.

Sometimes rundisney will tell us by email which corral we are in- they have with me the past 2 years for Princess. But I don't count on knowing before the expo.

HTH!

That's great info. Thanks, I really appreciate it. This is my first Disney race and I'm feeling a little overwhelmed. My usual half time was about 2:01 and while I don't think I'll be that fast I want to be placed ahead of the slower runners/fast walkers.

Of course I fully intend to fall back and join them at the slower pace - just wanting to start out ahead a bit.

I know, makes no sense but there it is! lol!

I can't wait!!!!

My sister and her daughter ran the Rock n' Roll half marathon today in Seattle and will be running the Tinkerbell with me in January! That is if I can still register by the time I have the money. Fingers crossed!
