As early registration starts today at Noon EST/9am PST for DVC members and AP holders, don't forget that the new runDisney proof-of-time requirements are effective for the Tinker Bell weekend.

(straight from the runDisney website)


New 2014 runDisney proof of time guidelines:
If you believe you will finish the Half Marathon in less than 3:15 hours, proof of time is required for start corral placement. Please reference the Race Pacing Chart below for finish times and associated pacing per mile.

Proof of time must be provided from a certified race, 10K or longer, reflecting results after January 1, 2012.

A valid proof of time provided at the time of registration must include the following*:
  1. Name of Race
  2. Distance
  3. City
  4. State
  5. Date
  6. Finish time

*For example, Tinker Bell Half Marathon, 13.1 Miles, Anaheim, CA, 1/29/2012 – 2:50

If you do not have a proof of time to submit, list "N/A" at the point of registration. If proof of time is not provided by November 1, 2013, data provided is incomplete or cannot be verified, you will be placed in the last start corral. To provide or update your proof of time, you must email all proof of time data requested above to No corral changes will be made after November 1, 2013.

As a reminder, you will no longer be able to bring proof of your estimated finish time to the Runner Relations booth during the Expo and have your start corral placement changed.

Will you be registering for Tink weekend? 


  1. The funny thing about having to provide proof of time for Disney races is that it goes out the window with all of the photo ops. I usually do a half marathon in about 2:40, but the last two Disney events I've done have come in close to 4 hours.

    1. Very true! I know a lot of people aim for a faster corral to give them more of a buffer for photos. :)

  2. I cannot wait til registration opens tomorrow! I'm in for the half!
