    Hi! I have decided to run the disney half marathon in January! I have never done any type of run before. I have read that when you register, you have to enter a qualifying time. Since I just started training, what do I put down? Thanks!

    Hello, Nicole! 

    I'm so excited you are planning on participating in the 2016 Walt Disney World® Half Marathon! You will not be disappointed in choosing to run this race as your first experience. My first half marathon was a runDisney event, too!

    It is not required for you to submit a qualifying time to participate. This "proof of time," is only needed for runners who think they will finish the half marathon in under 3 hours and fifteen minutes. First-time runners will not have one to submit, and that's ok! When you get to that section of the registration form, list your Estimated Finish Time as 3:16. You can also leave it blank, but if you do, you will end up in the last corral of runners - at least fill in something to help avoid that :) 

    And don't forget to mark your calendar! Registration opens on April 28th at Noon, EST. With races selling out in record time, I wouldn't want you to miss out on your chance to participate. 

    I hope this helps, Nicole! Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any additional questions. I am here to help you plan a magical runDisney-cation.
