I'm doing Goofy whats your choice
What medal design did you vote for?
Vote for Medal
gosh. where did you get this link? what a nice ideaim so indecisive I cant decide. What did you go for?
I am not doing it this year but would have voted 1 or 2 as it matches my tattoo
I went for 2, as its a really cool shape.
The 2011 marathon has been chosen, can't wait to get my hands on it!
Hi, my oh and I are aiming for 2012. Do you know what the cut off time is for the half and the full if you want to get the goofy medal? My oh is not the quickest of runners but we don't wan to go all that way do both races and not get the goofy medal (especially at that cost)
Am excited already, LOL
Last year there was alot of talk about booking into the pre race warm tent and post race massage etc for more megabucks. When you do you go about organizing that ? and does it have to be done from this side of the pond?
Fizz, you're talking about Runner's retreat. I paid for that, and it was very well worth it. You get a private bag check, so when it started sleeting we all grabbed our bags back so we could wear more layers for the race Also it has private loos (which means much shorter queues).
The best bit was the free hot choclate/coffee/tea to warm up before and after the race.
Runner's retreat will be available online later this year on the same area you used to register for the race itself.
For those who are hiring a car, the other option is to stay in the car until just before the race starts.
RB, what other questions do you have, I'm sure someone will know the answer.
The only issue with the runners retreat is the price as its a bit on the expensive side I think about £70 last year I used it the first year it was started and its something you can do without if your looking at saving a few quid
My boyfriend and I are doing the half marathon in 2011, it's our first time and we're super excited
We quite fancy staying in a Disney hotel, but we also want to be able to visit the other parks (Universal and Sea World) and we don't know if this is possible if we don't hire a car. Does anyone know how easy it is to get public transport to the other parks from Disney? Any tips from experienced Disney runners gratefully received!
If you want to go to universal, theres a ticket with transfer for sale online. Basically it's the same as a ticket for universal, but it comes with bus transfers to/from your disney hotel.
I've never been to seaworld. I believe from the ticket and transportation centre you can get busses into town, and then change to a bus going to seaworld, but I've never done it myself.
Public transport at Disney resort is very very limited and not that reliable As for seaworld its at the bottom of International Drive so about 20mins from Disney there is no public transport to get there from Disney. To make sure you can get to all the parks I would suggest staying at a non Disney hotel and use a car
Hi all - I havent been on this site since my London marathon run this year!!
I have booked on to do the goofy challenge. I love the challenge more than the run, so decided to do something difference as I have done a marathon. (god only knows what i am going to do next! lol)
The advice on here is great. I have been to disney many times, so will trade some of my disney knowledge for goofy/ marathon weekend knowledge.
good luck everyone
