Thanks, DVC -- makes me think of the saying, "I may be slow, but I'm lapping those on the couch!". lol

I'm not sure where to get the socks, but I think I need some

Does anyone know what time the expo is open until on Saturday before the Tinker Bell half? It would be cheaper for me to fly into SNA on saturday but I wouldn't arrive until 1:40. I THINK that would give me enough time to pick up my bib but I know it's cutting it a tiny bit close. Sure would feel better if I knew I when the expo closed.

I *think* the expo will close at 5pm? You could make it, but it would be cutting it close with baggage claim, getting a taxi/shuttle and then traffic. If you're planning on stopping at the expo, you might not have much time.

My active.com confirmation from GSC/Tink early registration says Saturday 9:00-5:00**. ** hours subject to change.

FWIW it also lists the expo as Thurs-Sat even though runDisney.com lists Fri-Sat with no times listed.

I signed up for Tink when i registered for Princess.....so i'm in for C2C. any more info on the Tink 10K rumors? doubt i would do it as RunDisney has enough of my money, but i could change my mind if the medal is really cool.

I hope the Expo is on Thursday, i could go as soon as we get there and not worry about wasting park time on Friday.

Technical registration question??

I want this to be smooth when registration opens...
I have an active.com sign in, so I'm set. My DD13, does not. Can I register her under my account? (With her name on her bib) Or does she need her own account?
What do people do who sign up multiple people?
Please share stressed out....eeekkk!

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too..... I wonder if I can bribe my sister to pick up my bib for me early on Saturday..... Considering I paid for her Pre-Race Taste during wine & dine this year, and she will probably be staying with us that weekend (for free).... it's the least she can do, no???

It will give you an option to sign up additional people. First sign yourself up, then they will ask if you want to sign up others. I've signed up my sister and my other family members through my account.

Does anyone know of a USATF certified 10k in the southeast before the cut off time for Tink Half? I'm having trouble finding one. I signed up for the St. Augustine Half on Nov 16 but obviously that is too late to qualify for this race. I'm willing to drive to one. I would just rather not be in the last corral if I don't have too. Thanks!!

Try this website. It doesn't list every race, but it is pretty comprehensive.

Darn.......didn't really find anything there. I did find Under the Oaks 10k and half in Jekyll Island , GA on Oct 12. Everything on their site stated they are a USATF sanctioned race, so I emailed them. They responded right away!! This race will be a certified USATF by race day. I live in Orlando and am willing to drive. Would be nice to have a group to represent the Tink Half there......any takers?!?! I'll probably sign up in the next few days ($30).

Is registration going to be that hard? Everyone everywhere is talking about registering at the very moment it opens... it's making me nervous!
