You're absolutely correct, however, starting the corrals as they do gives other benefits: keeping people of similar paces in groups to keep people from getting run over/held up, allowing the people who are more competitive to keep an eye on their competition, and keeping people from starting too strong or not strong enough by the group around you serving as a check on your pace.

Besides, there are races where anybody can have an unexpected bad outcome (I've had: trip and fall, nausea and vomiting, and cramping) somewhere along the course, and so they might need whatever edge they can get to finish the race in time. Starting at the front of the last corral as opposed to the back will buy you a few minutes of cushion, and every little bit can help.

This is also why I would highly suggest you do a race or two of at least 10K before your runDisney race to be able to provide a time. I didn't submit one for the ToT 10 Miler last year, and was in one of the last two corrals, maybe even the last one. I turned in Proof of Time at the Expo and got bumped up. It was my first runDisney race and first race where I was worried about sweepers, so it certainly gave me peace of mind.

FWIW, I started in mid-C last year and was hobbled by injury to mostly walking from about mile 5 on... and never saw the sweepers. Trust me - I was looking for them; I was totally ready to end the pain and board a bus, lol! Final average pace was over 16:00mm, I think 16:12. So for anyone who's trained for the distance and can keep up a comfortable 15:00 or so average pace, you should have no worries in any corral!

I agree - I do a 10k in Richmond for the only reason to get a fast time to submit for these races.

There were 4 corrals last year (A - D) and I submitted about a 12 1/2 minute pace... got me into C

I am registered!! I figured I should do it since we only have about a week till registration goes up. Was anyone else surprised by the active fee? I think last year it was not as much. Add in the race fee itself being more... and wow... quite the increase!

It's my first TOT, but the fees are killer! $144 for registration.

It was almost HALF as much last year. I just hit the button and tried not to look at my Visa statement this year...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For fellow between racers - what are you doing between now and TOT training? Do you have other races between now and TOT? Just going into maintenance mode?

I'm kind of doing both... I have a 5K and 10K coming up before Florida race season winds down for summer, but I'm not really training specifically for them. Now that I've held ITBS at bay for a couple months, I'm focused on reducing my extended walk breaks on long runs. I'll start throwing in some "hill" (bridge - it's Florida!) workouts soon, too, assuming no ITBS flare-ups.

Hiya V! I'm doing that 1/2 marathon in Tradition on 3/23, then a 5k on 4/20. Forgot about the DL 1/2 on 9/1.

I know! I was shocked at how much more it came to in total compared to last year. Definitely a "look away". Course, it could be worse. I looked at the W&D Now that one is crazy!

As for what to do between now and fall... I am trying to attempt to get in one race a month. Maybe "only" a 5k on occasion... mostly 10ks....and perhaps a 12k. Nothing over the 12k... and since I didn't get the time I needed to submit for that 12k on my most recent 10k... I might just bag that one. As we get closer, I will be building my miles back up, but for now.. .it is just about 15 miles total a week as maintenance.

I am all signed up for the TOT! So excited. I am also doing the 5K. I did the Princess 1/2 last year and had a blast, so I know I will love this too. Now to start my training!

That sounds like a great schedule - something to keep you excited all the way through!

I took a look on Active last night... there is just nada all summer down here. Understandably, really - I mean, it is rather like running on the surface of the sun.

Well, you could always travel up my way! Sooo many options

The runners though are crazy good up here. I came in almost dead last with about a 9:42 minute pace.... Lots of 5 to 7 minute paces!

Hi everyone! I'm registering for this race and I'm so excited! It's my first RunDisney race! BFF is also doing it with me. Quick question ... I know you can purchase a discounted 3-Day Park Hopper but is there any way to add days to that? We need a 5-day. Just wondering if it's possible and if it's worth it. Looking for a good discount. We are renting DVC points so we got the hotel part covered.

Thanks in advance!
