But if you are looking at it for the full, you need to submit the half time.
FYI - Proof of time for the Full can be a 10 Miler or longer not just a Half

I'm sure they will have buses running for all Dopey from host resorts!
Where have you heard/seen this? I am planning on running the 5k with my family who is not doing the Dopey...I would hope that they just change the 5k to a timed event instead of having a separate one.

I have spoken directly with RunDisney twice and they confirmed that there will be a timed 5K run BEFORE the regular run just for Dopey participants - it will be timed with our bibs and will start an hour before the reg race - 5:30am I believe was the time I was told!

They may change this before Jan but right now these are the logistical plans

I think the chances of a 5:30 5k are very small. It would be a mess, logistically.

Well if there is a timed 5k for Dopey at 5:30 before the family fun run 5k at 6:15 I will be running both. I signed DS6 and DS8 up for the 5k....they are NOT running that by themselves.

I really wonder if they thought this through… who is supposed to watch the children if there’s only one parent?

I would agree.

Perhaps since there is so much going on at runDisney, they hired some bus drivers to answer guest questions.

I guess enough people didn't like that - now they say that it will be at the same time with a 6:15am start :-) But Dopey participants will have a timed race.

Sorry for misleading anyone - looks like there may be changes as we go for this thing LOL

Someone from rD just told me 5:30. So I don't think anyone knows what's going on.

It would be so nice if they would have some sort of bib pick up prior to the 5k but if it is 5:30 then that would make that even more difficult.

Chances are, if this is true, I am betting they allow single parents to run in the regular corrals. It just might not be timed.

You have to pick up your bib at the Expo. I believe.

Right, but you have to be timed to be Dopey.
