Oh dear. That will keep me on my toes. I may have to do a mini-Dopey. I'm doing the 5k with my wife and girls, and am legacy for the half. I hope they run the 10k at a time where you can still run all three (like maybe Friday evening?)

I've heard they cannot add another race weekend because it's too hard to get road closures from City of Anaheim.

I do hope it is possible for someone to complete all 3 races, if they wish. The schedule on the run Disney site hasn't been updated to include this 10K. I hope we will know more soon.

There was an article in the OC Register after the Tinker Bell registration opened stressing how pleased the city of Anaheim was with the additional revenue that was brought in from the race. I heard the same argument when it was just the DL Half, so never say never. Right now, I prefer to keep hope alive!

Hmmm don't want to hazard a guess of what the 10k might cost... With the $170/$65 pricing one would expect over $100?

Maybe some sort of discount for doing two or three races? I wonder if they would have the third race on the Monday morning to get people to extend their weekends...

Doubtful. They don't discount any of the WDW marathon weekend races. I would love to see lower prices, but the market will pay it, so it's hard to say it is overpriced.

I'm excited to find out when the 10k is- maybe ill do it as a not-even-close version of goofy.

I check the run disney website everyday waiting for info on it... And a date for tower of terror!

Dumbo Double Dare!

I was on the fence for flying out to Anaheim for the Disneyland Half Marathon but now I really want to make it happen! There is no chance you'll ever get me to sign up for the Goofy, but a 10k plus a half is much more manageable.

This sealed the deal for me! I will make it work. Dumbo Double Dare? I am so down.

I'm thinking it would be my "try out" for Goofy. If it doesn't totally completely suck, then I might go Goofy the next year. So I'm eyeballing this race! I'd love to go back to DL, just not a summer runner... ugh, too hot here in TX to train!

Well I was spot on with the 10k pricing guess, but there's a 3rd medal involved also now... Can't see myself not doing the Dumbo...

I am so excited! I was planning to run the DL half to get my C2C, so the dumbo is an added bonus. I'm participating (running is an exaggerated word for me) in Goofy in January.

The idea posed by someone else that you could get 5 medals in a weekend (5k, 10k, half, Dumbo, C2C) would be more than any other available Disney weekend... Since Goofy is the first available race and you can't have C2C by then...

Now that would be some serious neck torment come Monday.

I would be close to that, except I'm running Tink with my wife, so I will get my C2C before Dumbo. Probably a good thing as it isn't much fun to walk around with all that hardware.

I was on the fence before, hubby is officially out but with the Dumbo twist I think I am in! Completely terrified of course since the 1/2s take a lot out of me, but this year for W&D we ran the Castaway 5K the day before so this shouldn't be that much different (I hope!)
