I am in! Registered and confirmed. I noticed on Facebook this morning that it is reported to be 42% full after the first day. That made be nervous so I searched Facebook (Dopey Challenge page) for the link and fortunately found it.

Guess it is time to change my avatar from Goofy to Dopey!

They only released around 2000 spots for early registration. No need to be concerned just yet.

Here it is. It came from the Disney Marathon Weekend page.

FYI- according to a Goofy Training page here on Facebook, they are saying that Dopey is already 42% full and they are allowing 1800 runners for it! Filling up FAST!

Not sure it is true, but it lit a fire under my butt!

http://marathon-registration.com/dis...d-marathon.php

shows some race capacities, but I feel like this is only the number of spots for early registration. I don't think these are final numbers.

Wow interesting stuff on the capacity link. Must just be for early registration since the numbers would add up to a pretty small (relatively speaking) marathon weekend.

It's great to see all of us on the thread here are signed up for the Dopey. We will be in good company that weekend!

I had a dream last night that I couldn't find any training plans for the Dopey and it was only 2 weeks until the race. Lets hope that dream doesn't come true.

I would much prefer cold weather over the heat from this year's marathon. That being said, sleet? No thanks.

The big question is where is Coach staying? I will be back at OKW but I'm not sure he is welcome back (kidding of course).

And Disney Visa info is out too: http://disneyrewards.com/offers/wdwmarathonapril13

Code is the first 4 digits of your card number...

It's $15 off instead of the $10 I got through DVC. Glad I didn't wait.

Total inept individual when it comes to the computer but DW has been trying to get me in for Dopey and has not had any luck. We have Disney Visa and she has found nothing for registration. What is the secret if anyone can help.

Thank you.
