    There are a lot of events being planned for Marathong Weekend 2012.

    •Goofy Challenge (Donald and Mickey) Saturday 1/7 and Sunday 1/8


    Run Disney is having tiered pricing again, so registering early saves you money.
    I'm fairly certain that given a tiara and a nice cape, I could save the world--one sequin at a time.

    2011 Donald ½ Marathon 2:59:00. 2011 Princess ½ Marathon
    3:12:40.
    2011 Disneyland ½ Marathon 3:13:52. 2011 Wine & Dine ½ Marathon --3:06:56.
    2012 Donald ½ Marathon --. 2012 Tinkerbell ½ Marathon --.

    Re: Marathon Weekend 2012

    I'm torn as to what to register for.

    After completing the Donald this year, my goal was to do the Goofy in 2012. But the inaugural event is also calling my name.

    I wonder if you can run both halves of the Chip and Dale? lol

    I know! I wanted to do the full for the first time, but the relay could be a better choice...

    Re: Marathon Weekend 2012

    My original plan was to do my first full next year but I'm liking the relay with Chip and Dale. Cassidy is a big Chip and Dale fan so she'd probably steal my medal.

    I also thought about doing the half and the relay. Just to see how my body will act doing two races back to back. Seeing if I can pull off the Goofy in 2013 for my 40th.

    Re: Marathon Weekend 2012

    Ok, I am thinking about doing the full marathon this year, but I do not have the money to register at the moment. I know the price gets higher the more you wait, but does anyone have any clue around how long it takes to fill up? I don't want to wait and then see that the registration has closed due to capacity being reached. Thanks for your help!

    Historically, the full is the last event to fill.

    Re: Marathon Weekend 2012

    I figured that the full marathon would be the last to fill up, but I guess I was asking if anyone knew, historically, how long it takes to fill up? Does it fill up in a matter of weeks, months? thanks!

    I think historically, it fills-up in the Fall. I would think that you have some time.

    Half tends to fill up before full. In years past it has filled fast and then last year not so fast. I guess it just depends. Keep an eye on the site. It will tell you how full each race is.

    With this year being the 15th anniversary, having a special medal, and judging how early the DL half sold out, I would not be surprised to see the Donald sell pretty quickly.

    I really need to decide if I'm doing the full....relay..or the relay and half.

    Re: Marathon Weekend 2012

    If Disney would let you run the Mickey along with one leg of the Chip & Dale concurrently, you could collect all the weekend's bling for only $500 (if registering early enough to take advantage of the tier 1 pricing)

    Since I doubt that Disney will allow that and with the advice from a friend, I may post pone my first Goofy until next year. An inaugural event medal can only be obtained once.
