Deadline to be in corral

Do Disneyland races have a cut-off or suggested time by which you need to be in your corral?

The only runDisney races I've done have been at WDW. I'm all too familiar with when I need to be on the bus, etc. in Florida.

I've looked at official event guides from several Disneyland races, and they appear to be silent on the issue. Can I really just walk into my corral at 5:29? (My placement within the corral is unimportant to me.)

I ask because I need to hire a professional babysitter, and I wonder what time I need to tell them.

I left my watch in the hotel at Tink and NEEDED it. (first timer and worried about the sweep). I got there with about 30 mins to spare and it was a tad chaotic trying to get to my mid-corral. Id say if your in one of the first corrals it MIGHT be an issue getting there later then an hour before but if your OK starting at the end I can see you being able to start at the end of the last corral with no issue.

I'm not sure if I'm staying at a hotel or driving down the morning of the race. Does anyone know what time the parking structure opens for race parking?

parking structure is pretty much 24 hours as there are 3rd shift CMs that park there, as well as volunteers that park in the same lot too. if you come early enough, you won't be charged $17 to park and you'll get a volunteer parking pass,

I was just checking the USATF site to see if the 5K route was posted. I noticed the Avengers Half map has been taken down. Not sure as to the reason.

Smile looking for bibs

Hi, I would really love to run the 5k with my son if anyone has a couple of 5k bibs they want to sell. And I would buy a half marathon bib that needs a new home as well! Thanks.

For some reason it now shows under inactive. It shows as expired.

-scratches head- Wonder what they mean by that? Does that mean DL decided to alter the course before finalizing it again? If that's the case I'm now curious to see what it's going to look like.

Wonder if someone decided the Lewis hill was too narrow (drove it the other day it's not particularly narrow it's just not as wide as the Ball hill but they might need to keep half of it open to traffic so if that's the case then it becomes a lot more narrow) or something. Or maybe it has something to do with the park? I mean were spending quiet a bit of time running backstage it feels like.

Now I'm even more curious to see what the course is when its officially released!

In other news I am up to running 2.5 miles with no IT band pain! yay! I know I'm behind on the training schedule, and I can't increase too fast due to the ITBS, but I'm thrilled to be able to start doing some training!

Oh wow.

I want sooo much. Of course it will be hilariously expensive with shipping to Aus.

I should get it just before the race though, so at least there is that.

ETA: Hmm, I think I'm currently right between M and L size wise too, so that's not helpful either.

Any other Aussies interested in the Avengers shirts? Maybe a group order and save on postage? PM me ASAP if you're keen and I can investigate costs (we will get discount on the shirts too)

Hi All!

Sadly my son and I just had to defer our Avengers registrations to next year and cancel our trip. Stupid WORK

I was able to cancel the hotel and tickets with GET (who by the way I use for all the CA races-they are awesome) and apply what I had paid to our Star Wars weekend balance.

Now here's my problem. I have two Pasta in the Park reservations (without park tickets) in my name that of course I can't get a refund on. If there is a way legally that someone on here can use them and I can not lose money, PM me and let me know. I'm open to sugestions. I hate to lose the money, but I also hate that there are people that want to go and can't.

Thanks!
