Man, RunDisney sure knows how to make a girl commit to running more and more miles!!
They sure know how to sucker us in by promising more medals!

Or would Goofy remain as Half + Full and would Dopey be 10K + Half - to echo what is being done in Disneyland Dumbo (10K + 1/2)?

We here have unofficially defined Dopey as traditionally being 5K + Half + Full, but we don't know what's being kicked around in Disney's collective minds.

I think the current pricing is too high for 10k + half.

Disney isn't known for being reasonable by any stretch of the imagination.

Although, I agree with you...but with them you never know.

The (alleged) Active.com page where the prices were listed shows the 10K at $95 for early registration, not $160.

I doubt the Dopey will include the 5K.

It DID show 160 no matter what it's showing now... So that's why people have been throwing that number out there...

I GUESS the one reason I hope out that the dopey COULD be all 4 races... Goofy = 160 + 160 = 320 plus another 20 bucks = 340... If you add up the 5, 10, 1/2 and full it comes up to 475... kick on another 20 = 495...... soo that was my reasoning and hope :D


The big question would be as others.. if you do dopey.. assuming even if it's only the 10 1/2 and full... Do you get the 10, 1/2, full, goofy and dopey medal?? I still will be holding on that it's all of them :D...

Yes, it was $160 for the 10K this morning. Now it's at $95 to match Dumbo.

I go away for a day and look what happens.

I would think that the Dopey would consist of the 10, 21 and 42 k races based on the initial pricing. I would expect the Dopey pricing to fall before registration to the $450 range.

I am not sure when I think the the 5k will occur, but I see advantages to both a thursday and a friday race. Thursday's main advantage is one additional day in the resort for families with a marathoner and a 5 k runner. Though, I honestly think that the 5k and 10k will share Friday. This lowers the race administration costs and keeps the same infrastructure build out schedule. It also keeps the same expo schedule (currently listed as Thursday through Saturday) and lowers the number of volunteers needed for that part of the race.

I think the logistics of Friday will be interesting. The 5k folks may be a little miffed, but looking at this I would think the 5k would shift to a 0530 start from a 0630 start. The 10k would follow at or around 0600. This timing would assure the 5k course clears out before the 10k runners enter Epcot (using my assumed map). The need for the first couple miles of the 5k to clear is that my assumed map has the 10k runners returning to the finish along the marathon finish. THis flow is opposite the 5 k through Epcot. A start at or shortly after 0600 is necessary for the 10k so that the 10k race clears from Epcot prior to park opening.

Here is my guess for a 10k that would use the existing finish line structure. This version also keeps the existing 5k start structure. An interesting note, this course mirrors much of the first marathon course as well. Note that I took the course over to Boardwalk, it may well stay on the Beach and Yacht side.... I think the Boardwalk side would be fun as it would include one more little hill.

http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/183663070/



So will I run the race... not sure.

1) I think I need something to assure me that the Perfectly Goofy would still continue for those choosing to run Goofy.
2) The cost is excessive. For $450 I can run 3 other marathons + 4-6 5k's.
3) I would also like to see Disney tighten up the finish line process. I understand that there are a few folks who game the system and do not currently run the goofy and still receive the Goofy medal.
4) This kills my race weekend procedure with my annual Cape May breakfast at 7:30ish, though I guess I could just slide breakfast back an hour or assure that my reservations are in BCV or BWV.

I think this a great marketing idea by Disney and think the limited number of slots will sell out quickly. I think the Goofy and half will sell out in much quicker times as a result of this effort.

One thing that I have not seen discussed.... who will be on the 10k medal?


So is it for real? I don't know but one thing for sure... It looks like I picked the wrong year to plan on running all WDW races.

Lets get to the real question....

How many medals will you get. Cuz this is all about the bling!!!!

If the Dopey is 10K, Half, Full...

Will you get 5 medals?
One for the 10K
One for the Half
One for the Full
One for the Goofy
One for the Dopey

Or will it just be 4 medals with no Goofy medal?

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Yes, this is what I want to know too. And then if you did Dumbo too later that year you'd add an additional 4 medals for a total of 9!! Wow!!

That's what I am doing this year. Did the unofficial Dopey this year and then running the Dumbo. So I'll have 8 Disney medals for 2013. W00t!!

I was thinking about "only" doing the full in 2014 after finishing the Goofy this year but I must say that the idea of doing the inaugural Dopey is quite tempting!

I would think you would still receive the Goofy medal for completing the Dopey. You still get the full and half medals when completing the Goofy. When you do the Dopey, you are still completing the Goofy. I still don't have a Goofy medal. 2014 was the year I was planning on finally getting one. So if the Dopey doesn't include the Goofy medal I will just do the Goofy so I can get the coveted medal. If the Dopey does include the Goofy medal I am going to go Dopey. If this makes sense to anyone but me, I will be amazed.
