    I will be running the Goofy next weekend. We are staying off site. A friend will be dropping me off each morning for the race, is there specific location for drop off?

    Hi Chris!   The Goofy is such a fun challenge!  I wish  you the best of luck!

    Your friend will be dropping you off at the starting area in the Epcot parking lot.  There will be signs and traffic guidance showing you the way.  There is specific driving instructions in the "official race program".  You can download it from the Disney World Marathon website.  Just click on that link, then the "RUNNER INFO" tab, then "Official Race Program".  You'll find driving information on page 56.   It will also be available in printed form at the runner's expo. 

    Please let me know if you have any trouble finding this.  See you real soon!
