We're in for the Goofy again - anyone else registered yet ???

I am tempted, so very very tempted!

Though maybe just the half.

Or maybe the full.

Or darn it, if I'm going all that way.....

Hmmmmm.

Hi Princess Leah - it was my first full last year after saying I would never go the full distance. Now my mantra is I would never go the full distance anywhere apart from Disney.

It was fantastic...Go on you know you want to

oh and if your going you may as well go Goofy and make the trip worthwhile !!!

Ponder, ponder, ponder...

I only heard about the goofy this weekend, I have never done a full marathon before but thought I am unlikely to do these races again so I might as well. I reckon I could walk at 16 minute miles if I have too.

How much? Does that include free park entry for the family for a week?
12/04/2012 at 13:43
Ha! sadly no. It is a lot of money but its a real treat.

It is 320 dollars to do the Goofy, which includes entry to the half on sat and full on sunday. The medals look awesome though.

You can expect a one off medal for the marathon as its the 20th running. The medal will be kept under wraps until the marathon however expect something special

HI Slowfoot - are you in for 2013 ??
14/04/2012 at 17:41
Did the goofy last year and had an amazing time. The medals were just superb, especially the donald anniversay one. Almost certainly going to go back and do again, but this time have fun on the marathon more and see how many characters i get pictures with. Would recommend to everyone.

Wow. What do you get or the money exactly ?

MM

8th Goofy planned for 2013 (fingers crossed)

SF - good stuff, keeping them crossed for you.

Cougie. If you love DisneyWorld then you will love the marathon. Its the magic of going through the four parks, seeing the characters on the way and enjoying the entertainment they provide en route. The support is amazing from everyone. It has to be the happiest Marathon in the world.

Minnie, I hate to spoil this, but they're not real and so why is a bloke in a Mickey Mouse costume better support than a bloke not wearing a Mickey Mouse Costume?

PS Do they have the FastPass system to skip the queues for the toilets at the start? I hope you don't queue for hours to start to be told by a surly bored 18 year old that there's a malfunction and the race is cancelled!!

I have just signed up for the Goofy for 2013 and already excited. Never been to Disneyworld so planning a 2 week trip with the goofy in the 4/5 day so I can recover.

There is a facebook page for the race which has announced the route for the marathon and counts down every day - 237 days till the marathon weekend.

Hello everybody,

I'm in for this one. I've been talking about doing this for ages and after learning to run properly for the 1st time in ages I have finally bit the bullet and entered. I'm really not convinced that disneyland is the ideal holiday destination for a single bloke in his 30s (I'm trying to borrow a child for a few days so as to not look really out of place) but eventually the lure of those medals got too much for me

I NEED THE BLING.......not want........NEED!!!!!!

Out of interest, what do people do about flights and accomodation for this marathon? Or is that what makes it expensive?
