If anybody doesn't want their free beverage, you can pass your beers my way!

Yes, I would also accept friendship in the form of extra beers!

Add me to the list of beer takers! It is a pretty sad choice of beers. I can't understand how they only offer bud and bud light with the selection of beers around the world just steps away inside the park! I tried the margarita last year. I thought that it was just my stomach that didn't like it after pushing a rather fast race. But after several other drinks from around the showcase, I determined is was the skinny margarita that was causing the problem. The first year was by far the best. Each runner got a drink and snack voucher to use at any kiosk during the party for your choice of drink and food.

I actually do not like the box of items they now give out at the end of the races. Also, am I the only one that wants a bag even if they give me the box of items. It is pretty difficult to carry a drink, the box and a bag of ice or anything else you are trying to carry.

I dunno you guys, I had a beer after my 3-miler last night (sans food) at the local Pub Run and it knocked me on my you-know-what! I think I'll be sticking with the soda!

I too am a fan of the goodie box they have been giving out. It offers a nice variety than a bagel, an orange and a banana. It also is nice to be able to carry it all easily.
Thanks for clarifying about the gift card. We actually didn't use the one from the second race until the 2012 race!

And my problem with the sangria--it had all kinds of weird ingredients so I was afraid to drink it anyway. Couldn't tell if there was gluten in there or not. Plain old wine would have been nice...even cheap wine.

I pick my races based on 2 things- 1. What is the charity 2. What free beverage at the end of race
Shamrock 1/2 Marathon = 4 yuengling beers
Moosehead 1/2 ironman(pre-official iota man event) = 1 margarita, 1beer
Warrior Dash = 1 beer
Yuengling 5k (1st one ever this April) = unknown # of beers + free brewery tour

The list could go on forever

Oh and it's always about the BLING

Art of Animation - host resort?

Do they often switch up host resorts? The three All-Stars were host resorts last year, but we would really like to try out AoA this time around...

They do switch host resorts but usually All-Stars is always included. I'm not sure about AoA but I would think that resort would be included as well.

Sorry guys we're out for W&D, but in for ToT!

Got a great flight deal with JetBlue - direct flights out of Syracuse that fit in with ToT dates. Will see you next year hopefully! I wish you all the best on your W&D adventure.
