$160 is well beyond too much for a 10K.

For this years full I submitted a half time of 2:28:50. And they put me in corral D. If you submit your 2:25 and tell them your anticipated finish time is something under 5hrs (but above, maybe, 4:45), they will take it. Or have in the past..

160 for a 10KM running race and 500 for all the races. Those prices are exactly that= dopey. I run marathons in NYS for 80 bucks and 10kms races for 25 bucks. I guess looking at the prices the marathon is really the best deal Disney has going.
That dopey will be a race for those with lots of cash laying around IMHO.
These prices are getting up there with race Ironman triathlons.
But agree, people will spend and sign up.

Dopey going to be OFFICIAL with adding a 10K into the mix? What do yall think?
160 the same price as the FULL!!! 500 for all races this is getting beyond ridiculous!!!! I never in my life imagine paying 160 for a 10k!!! But just like everyone else said. People will pay to be packed in like cattle!!!

So we don't know what the structure if Dopey is yet do we? Is it 10k & half like Dumbo and that would equate to 5 medals? 10k, half, dopey, full, goofy? Or is it 10k, half, full, no goofy but dopey? Or is the 5k included in this mix as well?

So many questions... And here I was going to do "just" the marathon... Lol.

My guess is that since they don't time the 5K (do they even keep track of who's crossed the finish line or not?) that the Dopey will be the 10k/half/full, just so they can verify that each person actually earned it. Though, do they verify that for the Goofy, or can you technically skip the half and run the full with your Goofy bib and get the medal?

They didn't verify that I had completed the half when I did Goofy this year. I did complete it (just want that to be known, lol) but after the full I just walked to the Goofy tent, they saw my Goofy bib and I got the medal.

I think you are right though and Dopey would be 10K/Half/Full.

According to the Disney Parks Blog, the 10k medal will be Minnie. After complaining about the initial $160 price, and then the price dropping, and that piece of news, I'm wondering if I can swing both the 10k and half...

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...athon-weekend/

"That coveted piece of hardware will be clanging around the necks of our finishers with the Mickey Marathon medal, the Donald Half medal, the 5K Family Fun Run medal, the Goofy Challenge medal, and the new Minnie 10K medal."

I'll be doing the 10K and Goofy if the Donald and/or Goofy medals change. With the 5K on Thursday I can't participate in Dopey because of work.
