This is from the registration building of POR FQ and uses a cast member maintenance road to avoid Bonnet Creek. There are a few folks using Bonnet Creek, also. Either will work. I have run the maintenance road a few times when trying to loop a longer run together while avoiding the main streets.

As a disclaimer, since we are in waiver season.... This is not a Disney approved way of getting to the marathon.
I remember this being debated earlier, but what are the approximate odds of getting caught and told to go back and get on the bus? I am at POR and really, really don't want to have to go all the way to the meeting area. It would be so nice to do a nice warmup and then head strait to the corrals.

50:50?
10:90?

Less than 10%. Since 99 I have only heard on one instance where folks were turned back. It was a forum post and never corroborated by anyone other than the poster.

My number is 6623 for the full. I had some leg issues not long ago so I am extremely undertrained but figure I will go anyway and just have fun this year.

I'm 29015 for the Goofy, but I think I may not make it. I canceled my reservation at POP because I didn't think I could make the trip. Today, I came up with brilliant ideas for affording it all, but there's no availability at any resort other than deluxe and ft. wilderness.
I'm holding out some hope, though...

Hi everyone,

We are not staying onsite this time (Sheraton Lake Buena Vista). What time would you recommend leaving the hotel to get to the half? Thanks!

Normal commute is about 20 minutes to Epcot. Plan on 35-40 minutes on race morning. You will want to be in the parking lot no later than 0400; earlier if you can to avoid traffic snafus. I would leave in the 0315 range to assure an 0400 stop in the lot.

Remember traffic patterns are goofed up. You will need to follow Buena Vista Dr (the road in front of DTD) past Epcot Dr, past Boardwalk and DHS and turn towards Magic Kingdom on World Dr. Once on World Dr, stay in the right lanes and then follow the signs to Epcot.

Hi neighbor! I'm up in Lewis Center. I do most of my long runs on the Olentangy trail. My 22 miler Friday was from Hills market (315-270 interchange) to the stadium and back. What pace are you shooting for? I just finished last year (my first) right at a 16 minute mile. This year I wanted to hit 12 min or better, but my last long run was right at 13:30 min/mile. I'll be happy if I shave an hour off last year. :-)

Good job on getting your 22 in! I'm not quite psyched up for my 20 miler this weekend. The number is intimidating right now. The weather looks like possible snow! Hopefully I can work it in over the 4-day weekend. A Christmas present for myself, right?
You can do it!!! As I said, I did 22 this past weekend and it was good (aside from forgetting the band aids). But I also did 20 the weekend before (hated to do two long weekends in a row, but I had to fit it in). That 20 miler was on the Friday where it rained ALL DAY, my WHOLE RUN! Just put one foot in front of the other, then repeat! ;-)

Not sure what you budget is but there are rooms in the Marriott Village. The Fairfield has a $99 rate. The Village has bus transportation to the parks, but not the expo or race... Though you can make a couple transfers to get to the expo. On race morning, a taxi will get you to the race and you can take the Village bus back. All this predicated on not having a car.

There are rooms from Holiday Inn and others on Hotel Plaza just on the outside of DTD. Walkable from the hotel to Saratoga Springs where you could grab a marathon bus.

Hypothetically, if I take a second week off of running and start back up next Tuesday, will the two weeks off be a huge hit to my fitness level? I'm trying to wrap my head around possibly still being able to do this. Both doctors I've seen were pretty confident I could recover in time without further injury.

If you only ran a shake out run the week prior to the weekend you would more than likely be good to go. You may need to drop a little off pace.

Good Luck

I've got a reservation at CBR that I'm not going to be using. I plan on canceling it this week, so maybe there's a way for you to pick that up from me.
