This was my 42nds race! It was a hot day (80F) and the course was far from perfect but I was glad to do it. More races should have Goofy options. I highly recommend it. On to the review:
Free parking at expos: I hate when marathons try to make more money off of running by charging.
Entertainment: The DJs were fun and the charactors added to the fun of the event.
Shirt: It was a cool shirt!
Medal: Oh yeah, the medal. You need to do this race for the medal.
Course: It was very narrow and crowded. I had to wait until 25 miles for it to clear up. Jeesh!
Cost: $380 is quite high considering the swag bag had only shoe laces for swag.
Starting Time: They should let us start at 5 to get us out of the heat. GEtting up for 2 AM is not something I look forward to.
I would recommend it for big races. I loved the Galloway pacers and I do recommend it as a big race or special race. It won't be a yearly thing for me. I will go to Florida though.
I did this half-marathon in 2005, despite the early morning start (6am) it was fun! My hands were sore from high-fiving the cast of characters who cheered everyone on, and we got our pictures with Donald and Daisy Duck at the finish line. I would have wanted a better finish shirt but the medals were great, lots of spectators and cool sections through the theme park. A no-brainer if you have kids....
