Half marathon 2014 - end of Aug or start of Sept?

Hi. Just trying to price up for our holiday in August 2014. I had been looking at staying at GC for 4 nights (using 27-31 Aug 13 for prices), but DH suggested adding an extra night as our arrival/departure days wont give us much park time. Tried pricing up 27 Aug to 1 Sep and found that there are only suites left - I assume because of the half marathon?

So my question is, guessing that we want to avoid the half marathon as it sounds like it will be busy, (and as we need to fly on weekends), next year is the half marathon like to be 30/31 August or 6/7 September?

Thanks!
Sarah

I believe it is usually on Labor Day weekend. No guarantees that is when it will be for 2014 though. But that is when it has normally been held in the past. HTH

It's typically Labor Day weekend so that'd be Aug 30-Sept 1, 2014.
