    I registered on April 3rd last year, and I *think* that was the day it opened.

    I'm not a strong runner but I am very excited to push myself to train for the half next year. Hopefully a full the year after that and the Goofy the year of my 40th.

    Just change the title from unofficial to official. That's it, no approval necessary. :)

    I lurked on these boards during the last weeks before the 2013 Marathon weekend but this is my first post. We had a great time doing the Donald, have registered for the Dumbo and are planning on the Mickey in 2014!

    I'm jumping in. Don't know what event I may do for 2014. I'm really hoping the chip & dale relay will come back as I want that medal.. Depending on what Mickey looks like I may do that.

    Did Donald in 2012 for the anniversary, did Goofy this year for the anniversary Mickey medal & already signed up for Dumbo!

    I'm jumping on board here as well. It'll be my second half as my first half is in September.

    Getting excited about this race and its still a year away!
    Quick question:
    How often do they change the course of the races?

    What is your speculation, will they keep the Marathon course going through the Wide World of Sports or go back to what is was the year before?

    Would they ever change the 1/2 going from Epcot to Magic Kingdom and back?

    I would guess the marathon route will be the same as this years. It gives them more time to prepare for MK's park opening.

    I can see them keeping the early entrance into MK for the previous mentioned reasons. But I also can imagine them removing the raceway...which is fine with me. That entry into the race track was a nightmare ramp down and back up.

    Sadly, the WWOS would probably stay as well. Was not a fan of that section either.

    This year was my 1st ever half marathon and I think I'm hooked! Count me in as one planning to do next year's half. Now hopefully my knee issue clears up and will no longer be a problem.

    I'm saving Goofy for the 10th anniversary- But I will be there for 2014 thinking:scratchin of the 1/2 this time since DS will be old enough to run and he wants to train for a 1/2- DH may do the full.
