    I know taht they had a Up themed meal for the 5k this year, so I'd assume they will be having one in 2011.
    The happiest place on earth is where my kids are!

    You will get a rubber type medal for the race. The medal seems to change every year. While it is a fun run they do state that you have to maintain a 16 min. mile but I've hear that they don't stick to it that much. Some have done it in an hour. I think their main concern is getting the participants out of the park so they can get cleaned up.

    I've never done the 5k in January but I plan on doing the one this Saturday.

    I did it in January and I did receive a little rubber medal for completion. They didn't seem to stick to the time per mile in this race for sure. There were so many people walking, I had to go off course a few times to get around them.

    It was a lot of fun and I would recommend it. Hopefully the weather is not as cold as it was when I did it. Waiting to start just about killed me.

    Yeah I don't predict an issue with the time limit per mile, I'm just not up to half marathon capabilities and my wife wouldn't willingly run that far.... ever.
