    Hi! My question is about pacing requirements. I see a pacing requirement of 16 minutes per mile for the 5K but don't see one for the half there? Thanks!

    Hi Holly!  Yes, there is the same 16 minute/mile pacing requirement for the half and full marathons too.  The pace car will begin after the last person starts the race, so there is a little more time for you the closer to the beginning of the race you start. 
    If you are worried, I would train at a minimum of a 15 minute/mile pace.  That way you will allow yourself some time to stop and take pictures along the course!  There will be some Disney characters that you will want to say hello to!
    I hope this helps!  Let me know if you have any other questions!
