Might be a silly question... and I STRONGLY suspect that the answer is "NO!", but I thought that if there had ever been an exception made, someone on DIS would know about it!!! I know that the Rock N Roll half marathons (and some others I've noticed) have AGE 12 as a requirement, whereas Disney says AGE 14. My son is turning 11 in Feb -- thinking about this for when he's 12 or 13 -- he has run a number of 5K races (he started at 8 yrs old) and will be running his first 10K race in DL this month!! He has run as far as 8.5 miles, and his awesome teacher is sure he could easily train for a half. This teacher heads up a running group at the school, is also their PE teacher, and is a former marine who runs various ultra races on a regular basis. Again... nearly 100% sure the answer is "NO!", but thought I'd ask.
