Saturday morning 7 am 10k
My mum and I were in corral A which was great.
We arrived around 6am to the start. We set off about 7:15
I love the 10k, it’s my preferred race distance
I’m not sure there were more character stops this year than last year. I think there were some missed opportunity hit spot areas for character stops
As we started in A and I am a faster runner than my mum I was able to run ahead and get in character lines so we could have a joint photo.
We stopped for all but one character photo.
We had photos with Snow White, moana, Pocahontas
I think there were large Km gaps between characters. We went for at least 4K before the first stop and the line was already about 20 min long so we decided to keep going
After this the longest we queued was around 7min
There is definitely an advantage when it comes to photo stops being in A
Again this might not be everyone’s priority
So the actual course is nice and flat. A lot of it was in the park, my favourite is running through the castle. You pretty much cover all the different lands and it’s fun to run around the back lot and see behind the scenes. The race theme was princess and I like that the race weekend has a different theme for each race
Good amount of water stops and there were cast members cheering
Spectators could get a wrist band at the expo to watch on Main Street or at the finish line
The medal was great, but scratched very easily.
I love this race weekend so I highly recommend
One last thing in the photos, they allowed the photographer photo after scanning your bib or to take a selfie, the cast members wouldn’t take a photo like last year. Taking a selfie was really time consuming, watching people fumble and panic trying to take a photo. Again the character stops are something that need a bit of organising and steam lining
