    When does the Goofy Challenge usually sell out? I know that registration opens in mid-March.

      It sells out when they get enough crazies with disposable cash to sign up for it Wink

        My first time I signed up around Thanksgiving.  This year I think it sold out a bit earlier, but I didn't pay attention to it.

          I "think" this year, it sold out in August or early September, but I could be wrong about that.  The good thing about Run Disney is once the race is 50% full, they keep their page updated with the %.  If you see it hit 90% or more, register because it usually sells out quickly after that.

            That is good news. I am running an out-of-state marathon in March and was thinking that it would kind of a big chunk of change to register for Goofy in the same month that I do that. If it doesn't sell out until the summer, that gives me some time to save my pennies. Thanks!

              I think that is true of pretty much anything Disney-related.

                Diz, same could be said for IronMan's.

                  so i shouldnt worry about trying to sign up for the disney races in April when it opens?

                    I definitely think you will be fine to wait until summer!

                      The full sold out in September of this year, Goofy was in early August.  I registered for the full on August 29th and it closed out within 2 weeks after.  If I remember the Goofy was already sold out.  So I would say that July should be your drop dead date, maybe the 4th of July to be safe.

                        You need not worry about registering for Goofy in March.  Registration for the WDW Marathon Weekend events opens on April 9th.  I'm contemplating making the WDW my first marathon, but won't be in a position to pull the trigger until I get some work related stuff worked out.

                         

                        DisneyLAND races sell out very quickly.  The Disneyland Half sold out in a little over a day.

                          I think that this would make a great first marathon. It is very walker-friendly, and it looks like a bunch of people stop to take pictures, etc. along the course. It feels very non-competitive and fun to me, which takes a lot of pressure off you when training. Plus, then we could do our Disney Sole Train FE!

                            Diz, same could be said for IronMan's.

                             

                            Except that in IronMan's you don't have to start standing in line at roughly 2:00 a.m. to make a start of 7:00 a.m.

                            Short term goal: 17:59 5K

                            Mid term goal:  2:54:59 marathon

                            Long term goal: To say I've been a runner half my life.  (I started running at age 45).
