Have fun!! It is not a stressful race at all. I will say to close your mouth when you are going through the color bomb areas. I did that and held my breath. Also, try to alternate sides--run through one color on the left and then the next on the right. Raise your arms so you get color on that part of your shirt too. A friend of mine twirled through the color bomb areas so she'd get color all over.

Twirling sounds like fun! Forgot to ask if you picked up your stuff the day of the event. We need to pick up that day due to the distance we are traveling. Just wondering if they were organized or if t took along time to get through the lines.

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend! Please share with the class how you did!!

Just having a random moment - when details first came out was this event on the Friday night rather than the Saturday? It won't change again will it?

Last year I am pretty sure it was on a Saturday right from the start. It was in September rather than October .... And I think the plan for this year was for it to again be the last weekend in September, but it did get moved.

I registered for the ToT 10 Miler a few months ago! It will be my first runDisney race. I did a few 5Ks in high school. Then since November 2012 I have run five 5Ks, including one this morning! My pace today was 10:36.

I'm looking forward to it since a) ToT is one of my favorite attractions, and b) I like that the race is at night so I don't have to wake up super early. However, during my run this morning I was thinking, how on earth am I going to run 10 miles straight?!

i didn't because it was local. mine was the Color Me Rad run (essentially the same thing). but they did have a set-up for packet pick-up there.

For the Color Run - there was a large packet pick up area. It was a very informal start as it is not a timed event. There is not even a clock on the run. They let people go in waves so as not to overwhelm the color blasters...many of whom where children at our run. We still had people arriving yet to run or even park when we left...and we were in about the 5th or 6th wave.

Be sure to bring a change of shirts and a towel to sit on or a change of pants/shorts for the ride home. Otherwise you might never get the stuff out of your car! Also we brought a pack of baby wipes. This got pretty much all of the loose powder off of us. We still had some on our hands from where we released our packs of powder but that came off in the shower later.

Another tip...a bandana. I used mine on my hair. Others used theirs outlaw style to cover their nose and mouth. Let's just say it was disconcerting to blow my nose later and have it come out teal.

But it was a fun event.

Thanks for the tips, especially the bandana one. You painted a nice visual picture that has me laughing : )

Does anyone use Nike plus or Daily Mile? I am so lonely training by myself! Would love some virtual training buddies!
I'm also on dailymile! I'm Tiffany W. and my pic is me running in a grey top and blue capris. Anyone can add me, also.
