Mickey's Jingle Jungle 5K - 2013

Is anyone planning to do the 5K during Food and Wine Half Marathon weekend this year?
I am seriously considering it, but would love to walk it with a group, rather than solo or just 1 friend.....

What are your plans?!

At the moment, I plan on walking this with my mom but if she backs out I'll probably run it. If you can't find anyone, I'll walk with ya.

I'm planning to Run/Walk it or run the whole thing but I'll be there. Trying to talk a few friends into it so we can make it family getaway for the weekend.

My DW will be running her second 5k. I am planning on spending the race with her. Based on her performance in her first 5k, we will be in the 50 minute range.

I so want to go do this. Going down and staying at the parks would really depend on if I still have a job thanks to sequestration....(grumble grumble grumble). Hubby (at that time anyway) wouldn't be able to go with (his school band does their town's Veteren's Day celebrations), but my mom sees me doing this race as a prefect excuse for visit F&W Festival again.

I just started training for a 5K and plan on doing a 5K Color Vibe run here in May. I'm training for an 18 min/mile right now, but am shooting for 15 min/mile for the Disney race.

Anyone have an idea how badly you have to be doing to get swept in the 5K? She definitely can't run it, but if they are really lenient on sweeping in the race, maybe I can convince her to do it with me at a slower pace of 20 min/mile.

I have never heard of anyone getting swept at a Disney 5k. I know a lot of people take it VERY slow, and have paces at around 20min a mile.

I plan on walking the whole thing. I want lots of pictures because I will NOT be able to take any during the half. My half pace is 14-15mm right now and I don't have the leeway to not get swept

We're thinking of doing it. We'll be in WDW to celebrate my DD's Sweet 16 then anyway. My DD is a pretty good field hockey player (already getting interest from college coaches as a Freshman) & she will be just coming off her high school season, but still in full training mode for Nationals at the end of the month in West Palm Beach. Her 2 best friends will also be with us. One plays field hockey & the other is a competitive cheerleader. They're going to talk about it at school this week and then decide.
Question, will the other mom & I be able to walk it or are they pretty strict about running the course? I know she won't want to let the girls go on their own....

I will be walking it alone.
My family can't do it in the 15 minute per mile requirement.
WHat time should we get there? I see buses depart at 5:00am from the resorts. Do you think that is too early?

The rundisney site says that all of their races are walker-friendly. You just have to hit the pace time (I'm saying that wrong).

I might be wrong but aren't all the Disney 5ks family friendly with no pace requirements?

They have a pace requirement. They just don't enforce it as strictly as they do with longer events. If you lag too far behind they have a golf cart that will pick you up and deliver you a little further up the course, to help you get back up to pace time. They need to have the park cleared of 5K participants in order to ensure the park is ready for general opening to guests.

My 8 soon to be 9 year old isn't trained and running it. Her big sis (13) on the other hand is a distance runner on varsity track runs 7 minute miles so I think she will be leaving us in the dust.

I'm not trained either so it should be interesting.
