That is kind of where I am at.... I run 5 miles on that friday as is, so the additional 1.2 miles is not all that bad.

I think the pricing indicates that you would get a Goofy medal as well. If you as them up separately then that leaves about $45 I think to cover the cost of that 4th medal and shirt...

I think that it would only be right to get the Goofy medal for the achievement of the half + full, and the dopey for all three...

Wasn't going to do Goofy until 2015 but I think I need to do this..

Anyone else notice an option missing from the lineup? I just remembered, as I was putting on my Relay shirt from 2012 - there's no Relay option! Didn't they say last year that the relay would be on hiatus for 1 year due to the special new course? Huh.
Well I'm glad I got that Chip n Dale medal. Who knows if that race will return!

I heard an interview on a podcast (probably the mickey miles podcast) where the person said that the logistics of a relay were really challenging and they had no plans to bring back a relay option in the near future.

Sadly, it makes perfect sense to me!

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 the real question! If you get 5, count 'em FIVE, medals for doing all 3 races, then this will be really hard to turn down! And that Dopey medal better be ginormous!

At the 2013 Marathon Meetup they said any future relays were unlikely due to complicated logistics. No more W&D relay and Chip & Dale unlikely to return.

One and done for the chip n dale. That's too bad, it's a cute medal!

Well, that $495 is a little easier to understand knowing it includes the 5k as well

Do we know if the 10k is chip timed? (And the DDD one for that matter?) Or is more like the 5k.
