That scares me a little... a sign, perhaps, that they've upped the cap?

Define "hard" - IMO, 10 miles is nothing to sneeze at, but anyone who's done the training shouldn't have a problem with the distance. It's not technically challenging; a large segment is flat, open highway, two up-and-overs on a cloverleaf count as "hills", and the section through WWOS involved lots of narrow sections with some tight turns. To me, the most difficult thing was staying aware of the many people around me - those tight turns, for instance, were packed full of bodies and inviting collisions.

So true! Some folks did Tron outfits last year and they were pretty neat - that idea is tempting, but no way can I wear long tights and long sleeves in the heat.

Oh, easy-peasy then! I'm across the bay, in Pinellas and often run our dirt paths in a number of nature parks - that's about as off-road as TOT was: packed dirt and some gravel. Worst thing about the cloverleaf is its steep camber; brutal on the knees and ankles. But training on FL roads I think helps prep us for that - good luck finding ANY Tampa Bay roadway that isn't steeply crowned for storm water runoff!

I am a little bit confused, I know that you can get somewhat discounted WDW tickets if you are running the race, but are any of the host resorts supposed to be discounted?

They are if you reserve through runDisney. By how much, I don't know, as I either use DVC points or an AP discount, but I know from others that they've gotten discounted rooms throughrunDisney for race trips.

I thught I read there was one for TOT 10 Mile....

Another question. I am not liking my C210K training program and the more I read the Galloway method, I think this might be a good plan. Each week he has long runs scheduled in, does anyone know if when you are doing the long runs are you still doing interval or run/walk?

With Galloway, he recommends run-walk-run for the long runs. I have been following the Galloway program for a year now and really like it. I have cut my half time by 45 mins and am looking forward to setting a new PR for my next marathon.

Sold approx 10,000 entries last year. I have no direct knowledge, but would guess that they up it to 11 or 12k

Run-walk-run intervals are the hallmark of Galloway's methodology, but one can certainly follow his training plans as strictly a walker or runner. I do intervals for all runs and made a training plan that blends some Galloway and some Hal Higdon attributes. My advice is to take a look at what's out there and find a plan that fits how you run, how you want to run, and your lifestyle. Mix a couple together if you need to!

At some point (I imagine in the pre-race pep talk?) I remember the runDisney folks saying "almost 12,000" last year, though that may have included the 5K and kids' races, too.

RunDisney is now offering 40% off a 3 Day PH - that's an awesome deal if you don't already have an AP (or are considering one) - I think the price break goes down as you add days and options though.

RunDisney also has slight discounts at the host hotels but I find that I book with them to make sure I have one and then wait for Disney to offer a better room only rate closer to the event - the 25%-35% off that Disney offers is usually better than what RunDisney offers anyway. But all rooms booked through RunDisney are considered "Packages" cuz they add some free mini golf and so the $200 deposit and 45 day cancellation policy applies.

NOTE: You can get any of the disney dining plan from RunDisney added to a room WITHOUT adding tickets - but again this is a package and all package deposit and cancellation rules apply.

Per last year's corral assignments document, the cap/bib range went up to 10,400. I would agree that I would think that number would probably be closer to 12,000 this year maybe. There were actually times on Osceola last year that I didn't feel like I was running right on top of four other people, so we know Disney has to change that this year!

Right?! I thought TOT was pretty crowded... then I ran Princess. Made TOT look like a secluded run through the forest.
