Is there any benefit to that or would keeping it as individuals be just as good?
Added you. For the teams, it's all a personal preference. I think the only difference is you have a team bib and I think a sash or something. They might list the results differently, but that's all.

Got you down. Are you doing the full or the ½ w/ Nike?

I'm at BW Stovall's across from the finish. They might have some rooms, but check them out fast; I think someone on the WISH thread said they might already be sold out. If you're going to stay at a resort hotel, the cheapest way to go is through Get Travel ~ they're the travel company for the DL races. If their site isn't updated yet, it will be w/in the next week. I think pretty much anywhere around the resort is good. If you stay on Katella b/w DL Drive and Harbor it's a short walk to the staging area and from the finish; it's in the parking lot of PPH. And if you're on Harbor, you can either go down to Katella to the race area or cut through DTD. I stayed at BW Park Place which is on Harbor at the crosswalk to the resort and cut down DTD and through the Grand Californian to the start area, it was really easy. But rooms are open and w/ MLK weekend as well, don't wait too long. Also almost all of the hotels offer AAA card discounts so make sure you use it if you have it!

Forgot to mention, the ½'s already at 92% so if you're thinking about registering, jump on it before it sells out! The 10k is at 51%, 5k is 55% and the kid's races are at 62%.

We are at BW Stovalls Inn. I think you can still get rooms through last minute travel.com. The hotel is very close to the start and finish line.

Thank you I just scored two rooms for at Stovalls for $68.00 + tax a night. I've stayed at Stovalls twice before, so I'm happy with this choice!

Quick question regarding kid's races. My daughter will be 6 in January and my twin sons will be 4 in Feb. For Tinkerbell kids races, can I register them in the 4-6 category so they can run with their sister? Will anyone check this ad they will only be 3? Thanks for your help!!!
