Interesting.....if, IF, it is true (1) when would they do the 10K? at the same time as the 5K on Friday morning? and (2) would doing Dopey count towards Perfectly Goofy?

I read somewhere that the 5K would be on Thursday and the 10K on Friday....

I wonder if this means we'll be seeing a price hike for the Disneyland 10K come 2014... And to think I thought $95 was a bit overpriced! If they build it, we will pay, I suppose. I can't see myself shelling out $160 just to do the 10K, but if they started a challenge for the 10K and half like at Disneyland I would consider it. Considering I only made it to mile 21 of the full (thanks, knees), I don't see a Goofy or Dopey in my future.

I told myself I would never run Goofy, but damn if I don’t want a cute little Dopey medal.

Me too! It would make the price tag a little easier to swallow...

FYI, just read it was updated to $95. Still a lot, but more logical.

Was just going to post the same- it's been changed a bit. But still a lot for a 10K for sure!

I was already planning on doing Goofy in 2015 because I am not quite ready to take it on for 2014...this year has been working on improving my time and a bunch of 1/2's (plus DDD) but gosh darn it, now my mind is going straight to Dopey for 2015. Cause you know, training for 39.3 miles wasn't a crazy enough thought for me...what's an extra 6.2 miles, right? Haha!! Man, RunDisney sure knows how to make a girl commit to running more and more miles!!

To add fuel to the rumors, now the runDisney Twitter account is hinting towards something.

There's no official announcement at this time for 2014 #WDWMarathon Weekend, but please stay tuned.

Registration for Marathon Weekend opens April 9th, correct?

So they are going to announce a new race and medal structure two weeks beforehand? I'd like a little more planning time. (Not that I won't figure a way to cough up the dough....)

The only problem with Dopey being all four races is that the 5K is not a timed race. So they have no way 'currently' to track anyone's completion of the 5K. So to include the 5K in the Dopey, I think they would have to issue Dopey participants a Chipped Bib and track their completion (if not their actual start/finish times).

It's possible though....

It was bad enough that the Half and the Full have the same price tag. But the 10K? That is really pushing it. (On a side note: I hope the Dopey Medal has a pickaxe with 'Dopey' written on the handle like in "Once Upon a Time"!)

My question is: How are they going to handle WDW 2015?"

For example, I intend to run the Goofy in 2015 (10th anniversary race!). Now that they have the Dopey Challenge, will I have to choose Goofy over Dopey in order to get the Anniversary Goofy medal? I mean the Dopey is just "Goofy Plus", right?

So, if I choose to sign up for the Dopey in 2015, will I be able to either 1) get both the Goofy and Dopey medals if I finish all three, or 2) get to choose 'which' Challenge medal I want?

OR, do I just sign up for the Goofy, and also the 10K, so I get the Goofy Medal and the 10K medal and can claim my 'unofficial' Dopey (like it has been done for years)?
I've got quite a few of the same questions as you! I also planned to complete Goofy in 2015 (hoping for a special 10 year medal!) but was unofficially planning to do the Dopey (hey- what's another 3 miles after 39?!)

If I do the Dopey, do I get a Goofy Medal as well? I suppose only runDisney can answer this question when they put out an official announcement on the new event!
