    I am intereseted in the 5K . I am 45 and my three daughters, I think will participate with me. Is this held on October 4-5 the same day as the 10 mile run? What is your running style. Is it faced paced walking?

    Hi Colleen!

    Yes, the Disney Happy Haunted 5K Trail Run will be held on Saturday, October 8th, at 8:00 a.m., and the 10-Miler will be that same evening at 10:00 p.m.  Both races are really fun!  I hope that it works for you and your girls to run in them.

    I actually use the Jeff Galloway "run/walk/run" method of running.  This means you alternate between running and walking at intervals. Galloway is the official runDisney trainer.  You can also find out more about his method at www.jeffgalloway.com. 

    You will see all different methods at runDisney.  Some runners will run the entire race, others use the run/walk method, and some do a fast-walk the whole time.  It's whatever works for you.  You are just required to maintain at least a 16 minute/mile pace. 

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
