    I booked yesterday with Acclaim Travel for bibs and room. So I asked them about the delay. His response was "Dont worry, they won't cancel or change weekends, I talked to my boss yesterday. I already have bibs in my order bank from Disney." He feels that Active has a glitch (happened one time at Boston Marathon and Chicago).

    Yes, I've received those communications from Acclaim too, but a room is still required. HUGE difference for me if room requirement can be waived for DVC with an existing ressie.

    Hmm... multiple weekend challenge...


    Like something to replace the Coast to Coast option that’s gone?


    Or maybe try to tie in the virtual race series they have in the summer with Wine and Dine like they did with the virtual run to get the Kessel Challenge medal?


    My personal favorite would be like an Epcot Festival Challenge medal. If you do two race weekends that fall during Flower and Garden, Food and Wine, etc.


    They could get really creative with that ...


    So that won’t happen

    I think it's a great idea - I'm calling it my #allthemedals challenge! As much as I'd love Disney to make it official and give me a big, shiny medal for my efforts it'd make more sense to have it start with Marathon weekend since Coast to Coast, Castle to Chateau, and Kessel were all based on a calendar year. I'd expect a hypothetical WDW Half Marathon Series Challenge to follow that pattern.

    Well, I may regret this but I just signed up with a TA company for the 10k and room. My AP will be active by mid-summer so I won't need tickets. Now, here's to hoping dates/races don't change too much and that all transactions went smoothly.

    So does this mean that if we aren't going through a TA we will have a small chance of getting to register?

    I doubt that's what it means. For me personally I can't keep checking to see when registration opens and I've taken too much unnecessary time off work and worrying about this. So I went with a TA, although it makes me really nervous to go through a TA that I don't personally know.

    It’s just a theory of mine. Who knows what’s actually going on.

    Doubt it. They get assigned blocks from rD — shouldn’t eat into the early or regular registration numbers, I would think.

    We have never done a rD event before so I'm a little nervous about getting registered. We are planning on doing the 2 course challenge as long as my knee holds up. Luckily, I'm able to be at home and ready if registration starts, but we likely won't know if we can go until April.

    that is what I'm worried about cause there are 3 of us planning to do 10K only and that race statistically has the smallest amount of bibs to start with and normally sells out in hours/days

    All 3 of us are APs we're also local and only intend to stay Thursday, Friday and Saturday night....

    I’ve used the same credit card to register for three different race weekends and haven’t had fraud. I’ve also used it at the expo without fraud. Heck I used it at the expo to register for SWDS! I honestly don’t think runDisney or Active are to blame. From what I read on the RunDisneyrun FB page most of the fraud occurred with the Chase Disney Visas. That makes me think there was something else going on. I set up text messaging for any kind of transaction made on all my financial accounts. Doesn’t matter if it’s a deposit, transfer or withdrawal. I get notified within seconds of it happening.

    While I was pumped at the start, after running 13.1 miles at 10:30 pm all I wanted to do was shower and sleep. The last thing I wanted to do was party. :blush:

    For some reason I missed the "Festival" part and my mind jumped right to a drinking around the world challenge and I pictured a 5k around Epcot where you had to stop in each country for a drink :drinking1:faint:

    I'd do it :thumbsup2

    Your idea sounds totally reasonable though!

    So fun fact, on today's YouTube's The Daily Fix (theDis)... this thread made the segment for trending topics on the boards. Congrats to all of us and our speculation yesterday... :)

    By a standard business calendar, they have three days. By the US week, they have four. By a European week format, they have five.....

    We are planning on the 2 course challenge and I think that’s typically the third race to sell out. We will be there Tuesday to Tuesday (not for sure because don’t have plane tickets yet). We aren’t dvc or ap so no early registration for us.

    I'm just imagining a Monty Python-ish end credit sequence.
