    I think it was like May or June but in the Spring there will be a place to sign up to receive emails about when the registration will open.

    :thumbsup2 Thank you so much! I know the DL races sell out quicker, so I want to make sure I jump in on it ASAP ;) See you all in 2014!!

    This is a super helpful idea -- thank you! We're practically neighbors, btw -- I live on the Peninsula :)

    It looks like we get to run through downtown Disney again. I haven't done that since the early DL halfs. Too bad they don't come back into the parks again, but at least we get to run through the parks in the dark with the lights on. It is very pretty.

    I'm Bib 4081--got demoted because I'm a dude. Doesn't really matter since I'm running it with my wife, and that should easily get me into her corral.

    Waivers and an email about my race skirt from the lady that's making it all in the same day! Can't wait til they post the corral breakdown...my number is higher than last year and I submitted a better time...they must have really increased the cap this time around!

    Earlier this year they started posting corral breakdowns on the race website...sometime around when waivers were released...so I'm assuming (and hoping!) they'll do the same soon for us! Just keep checking the race website...I want to say it has been posted in the same section of the website where the waiver link will be...maybe a little further down the page. I'm sure someone will post it here too when it's available!

    A little off-topic but I just read that in 2014 there is a 10k option for the DL half weekend!!!! AND something called a Dumbo Double Dare...10k saturday and half on sunday and you get an extra medal for it...kind of like the Goofy challenge, only not the insane mileage! Pretty cool! I'll repost this on the PHM thread too...:thumbsup2

    Yeah, I saw that in your earlier post and tried to use it. I think I'm pretty close. The only part I'm confused on is the loop around mile 4. I'm good past roundhouse road, but the return looks like it would have to go through Toon Town, which would make you have runners going both ways just south of Small World. Possible, but a bit congested maybe.

    I'm happy and perplexed at the same time. I'm legacy for the half and want to continue that. I also like to race the half and made age group 4/6 years. If they put a 10k the day before, and I want to go legacy on that too, then it doubles my cost every year, and compromises my chances of winning age group (because of the extra mileage the day before). I'm sure I will run it this year just to be in the inaugural race, but after that I'll have to see.

    wow, my number is also higher! MUCH higher- about 17,000 higher! I wonder if it is a mistake?? I absolutely submitted a time correctly... maybe I will have to bring a proof of time just in case?
