I don't want to jinx it, but they have been improving each year...

(btw, honored to have Coach running the race with us)

It has improved greatly since the first year. Bag check is quick and painless, more rides at the after party, and shorter lines at food stations. The one thing that I liked better about the first race was the voucher for your choice of any one food item and one drink during the after party. The drink of choice they give you now before entering the party is really an insult. When they have so many great choices just a few hundred yards away inside the park, why do they offer such horrible choices? I'm sure it comes down to money and who they can get to donate the free drinks.

DH and I have registered. I guess we are in!

Does anyone know where they have a map of the route?

4 months ago I had never done more than 3.7 miles, although I do run regularly. Since I got this crazy idea in my head I have been doing a long run every 1-2 weeks just trying to see what I can do. Today I made it to 10.3 in under 1:50. I'm truly surprising myself! I'm hoping it goes this well in Nov.

Nice job!

I'm not sure if you can still access the route from last year's race but it starts at WWoS, heads up Osceola Pkwy to AK , winds thru the park up to Everest, down to Dinoland and eventually out to the parking lot . Then back up Osceola to DHS , through the side of the park to the backlot, up past the Osbourne lights and Star Tours, winding through to the front of the park, out the entrance, along the sidewalk to the BW, over the bridge by the Swan/Dolphin, in a side entrance just before International Gateway, out by the side of Soarin', through some bizarre laser tunnel (which really screws with your already exhausted brain!) and finish up in the parking lot in front of Epcot. Whew!!! This is obviously an abbreviated version, but it should give you the general idea.

Thanks! I have found the descripton on Run Disney's site, but I'm looking for the actual map. I had seen it before, months ago, but can't find it now. It even had the miles marked.

That map makes the 13.1 look a lot farther than 13.1 for Princess. LOL

Totally excited- get to "run with Coach!" Well--- run way way way far behind Coach. LOL

What drinks are offered outside? Just beer and wine? nothing good? :P

I think so too, although I prefer more the more mileage through the parks than PHM. I am kind of over them making Epcot during the last mile though lol. My old nemesis thanks to PHM. I'm tired of seeing that ball at the same time as I'm seeing Jesus

Dh and I are signed up! Not even sure if he can get the time off work, but we won't know until the last minute. I'm super excited for this one I've done Tink and PHM but I am thinking this will be my favorite! Now to figure out where to stay that isn't awful expensive.....

Rundisney twitter account says 14000 expected for the W&D half marathon itself. Don't know how that compares to PHM though.
