I have a question for all the runners out there. I haven't competed in a timed race in quite awhile, and never a half marathon. My training is going well, I'm at a 14 minute mile on long runs, hopefully that will be improved soon, but I started at 16. What is the pace requirement to make it out of the last corral for the DL half and what sort of race, 5k or 10k (I'm assuming 10k), do I have to participate in to get proof of time?

I'm pretty sure you need to do a 10K, but I'm not sure of the pace requirement. Thanks for asking this--I actually was wondering the same thing. There are lots of people who have done a Disney race in here, and I'm sure someone will be able to clarify. :) Glad your training is going well! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 8:44AM
I'm signing up for a midnight glow stick 10k next month. I'm wondering about pacing because I need to know what to shoot for. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  690.8 #284 9:12AM
Yeah, I'm looking at 10Ks in July right now and I'm wondering the same--I don't want to be in that last corral! - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 9:16AM
I am so not a runner, but I wish you all the best. I have so much respect for those who do. - Mrs.mouse  543.6 #376 6:33PM
Thank you! I was a runner, but haven't been in years. My body seems to remember how to do it, which has helped. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  690.8 #284 6:37PM
You are well within the time requirement - finisher pace is 16 minutes/mile. And yes, if you want to turn in a time it needs to be a 10K or more, but if you don't turn in a time you will be put in the last corral is my understanding (so I didn't bother with a time since I am hovering right around 15:30). - Duchess73  340.9 #702 9:00PM
