Sarah, you can submit a time that is a little older, so if you have done a race since July 2010 that was 10K or longer, you can submit that. You may not need to run another one for time.

From Tink website:

Proof of time should include name of race, year, distance and time finished (i.e. 2010 Disneyland® Half Marathon - 2:25). If you do not have a proof of time to submit, list "N/A" at the point of registration. Proof of time must be provided from a race 10K or longer. All forms of proof of time must be from a race after July 1, 2010

In my experience with the Princess, they were pretty generous with the times. I submitted a finish of 1:18:00 for a 10K in my first year and was put in corral B. Last year, that same time would get you into corral C at the Princess. So it really just depends on the fellow runners. And the Princess is a bigger race, so that can factor in as well.

I suspect if a lot of men run, then corral C can get really crowded as well since they do not let men start before corral C.

Hope you get to register CamoMama! I'm dying to know what the % is now! Hopefully they update on Monday.

Is the coast to coast medal the same every year? What about the other medals? Are they the same each year?

CONGRATS!!!!

Yes- you can! I did. I wasn't that far along, but I was right at 6 months and completed the Princess 1/2. I walked it though, and started in B corral (just moved over and hugged the curb!) I finished 23 people from the finish... LOL... but I finished!

I think it depends on your level of running and physical fitness, and of course, TRAINING! But if your doc says to go for it, why not? Plenty of prego moms run right up to their due date even. If you train properly, yes, you could do this.

They are all the same until the 5 year anniversaries. Then they change every 5 years. I do not know about the C2C medal- I believe it has been the same every year, but not sure how many years they have been handing those out!

Congrats!!!! I would love to tell you yes, but I have no clue. I would pop over to the WISH thread, b/c I know people were talking about that a few months back.

So far the C2C medals have been the same. The lanyards and years just change. The medals for the 1/2s usually change for milestone years and then maybe after the milestone year. I know the DL 1/2 used to be the castle, it changed for the 5th anniversary and then last year was the DL "D" with a little castle in the middle. The princess has pretty much stayed the same w/ the jewels changing. The 5ks though, change every year depending on the theme. But Tink's 5k says Never Land Family 5k, so that one could be the same, since that was the theme this year. But it was the 1st year, so we'll know closer to the race.

Good to know. I won't worry about Tink this year then. Running my first marathon the weekend before at wdw. Getting the special medal there for the anniversary. Maybe I'll wait until 2014 for Tink. However I will be doing the DL one in two months for my c2c!!

Bored at work and was playing around on their site. This year they're doing it like the Princess and it includes a subscription to Redbook. But they have a form where you can mail it in and get a refund. It's only $3.92, but better than nothing if you're not interested in it. But you only have 30 days from when you registered.

I did it!

I registered! I think I might have disney fever though, because this is my first 1/2 marathon, I haven't ran in YEARS and I'm still trying to figure out what to do with my girls while I'm training.

Oh my I've gone and done it now

I signed up for the Tink the day registration opened and have been working on the C25K.

I am a nurse and one of the docs I work with has lost about #100 so I decided to tell her I was running the Tink as she is a big disney fan and definately would hold me to task asking about training and how I am doing.

She told me today that she looked on the website and thinks that she would like to do this also and would I mind a running partner now and for the race.

Oh my I now have absolutely no excuse. I have a running partner that will kick my butt if I even hint of slacking but will be the best support anyone could have asked for.

Come January 19th no one will recognize this former overweight couch potato crossing the finish line in less than 3 1/2 hours.

First off, I think this is my very first post on these boards, and while this may not be the place to do it, , my name is Janelle!

I found the Tinker Bell Half Marathon information because I originally saw a post for the DL Half Marathon on these boards, and I got really excited. I'm definitely a great candidate for the C25k program. My work schedule is nowhere near as hectic as indygirl's, and if she can do it, so can I (you've totally inspired me!). I originally felt very hesitant about doing this because, hello, I have NO training at all whatsoever! But I found some helpful information on About.com and a few training programs in addition to C25k that I'm starting today to help me get ready for this!

After reading everybody's encouraging comments, I feel completely comfortable to just get out there and give it my best shot. My biggest fear is failing the half marathon and not being able to complete it, but like indygirl said, the most important thing is that I actually try and give it my best shot, and perhaps not to finish with the best time, but to actually FINISH!

So, the reason for my post is to thank everybody for being so encouraging and providing a place where us beginners can get the support we need!! I'll be signing up for this by the end of the week, while I can still (hopefully) afford it!

Yay for new runners!!! WTG ladies- you will love it.

Dont misunderstand me- running sometimes sucks (ha ha ha) but the event is worth it to me, so I suck it up and just go. And I love the gear. And skirts. But actually running? eh. LOL

I guess that's not fair- some days I REALLY love it. But I will admit that if it wasn't for the Princess and now Tinkerbell, I would not be looking at half marathon type mileage. So, thank you Disney!

You two will have a lot of fun, burn some calories, and have some really cool bling to hang on your wall. CONGRATS on signing up!!!!
