#RunDisney ✨✨✨All these running photos today MADE me add the 5K to my Tinkerbell weekend in January! And FYI...while the Half marathon and Kids races are sold out, the 10k is at 86% and the 5k at 85% capacity. I'm guessing they'll sell out too after everyone runs this weekend and realizes what a great time it is. ✨✨✨

It was exciting to see all the photos. I was supposed to do the 5k but my back went out on Tues and I've been laid up on painkillers. My husband ran and I'm so proud of him. He was not a runner and trained for 7 months. He did so well he was wishing he had done the 10k too.... the really exciting part is we signed up for the 5k in January, including our 3 kids. Plus he is doing the 10k. We hesitated at first because they will be on different days next time. Looking forward to training with my children and seeing us all reach this goal. - HalfCaff  518.2 #402 6:47PM
Sorry you didn't get to run!  That should be fun in January!  Congrats to your hubs! - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 7:19PM
I am close to adding the 10k for January, already doing the 5K.  I can't wait.  I know I can do 3 miles.  Just a little more training and I am sure I could do 6. - DisneyVacationLover  505.0 #422 6:11PM
Can we do both? I was just saying I wish we could? - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #613 6:21PM
You can do it! 😊 - Darlingwendi  1222.7 #140 7:04PM
7mouskedoodles yes, you can.  I am signing up for it next week. - DisneyVacationLover  505.0 #422 9:10PM
@DVLover&DarlingWendy: thanks! I looked it up and realized that 5K(which we are currently signed up for ) is on Fri,and the 10K is on Sat. So it might not work this time around. If they were both on the sane day(like today's run) then it would work. Aw shucks! Thanks for the info! - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #613 9:44PM
Wonder why they are doing the 5k on a Friday, if it's considered a family run?  Friday is a school day for my son, his holiday is Monday.  - snowwannab  751.3 #253 4:17PM
Is it possible to just walk the 5K? - PrincessTiannaBeignet  335.5 #722 6:41PM
I believe you have to  be able to keep the pace disney sets which means the time of the last runners.  It is usually between 15 and 16   minute miles which you can walk in time for sure, but you could also do a bit of a slow jog/walk so you get to experience it all!!! - secretagentangel  4658.7 #28 6:49PM
Thank you for the info. I'm not sure that I could run it without flaring up injuries. - PrincessTiannaBeignet  335.5 #722 7:11PM
I just walked it this morning no problem.   - SBsnowwhite  522.6 #397 7:14PM
when I don't feel good, I try to do like a hustle walk jog, I go as fast with a bit of bouncing which helps my back, then I walk and so on.  I think as long as you can keep that pace, they let you enter.  It is on the rundisney - secretagentangel  4658.7 #28 7:15PM
site.  sorry!!:) - secretagentangel  4658.7 #28 7:16PM
You can totally just walk it...saw lots of people do that this morning! - duckchub  557.8 #364 7:16PM
Yes this was our 2nd year walking the 5K. It is so much fun we started in the middle corral and stayed to the side so we were not in the way of the runners. It is a blast! - Missymoo  742.2 #262 7:19PM
Cool. Thanks everyone. - PrincessTiannaBeignet  335.5 #722 8:12PM
I don't think they are strict about time.  I the 5K in 45 min and finished in the top half.   - AZDisney  610.4 #334 9:13PM
This is such awesome news!  I can only walk and hubby always has to slow me down at DL so I don't poop out at the end of the day!  - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 10:04PM
My hubby, son, and I have been training for the tinker bell 10K but sadly we now can't afford to pay for registration 😔😪 so bummed. Have fun!!  - minnieMisty  276.9 #1088 10:07PM
I'm glad that put pictures helped make your decision! It really was so much fun!  - sunshinegates  745.7 #258 7:28AM
Tink is still open! Sign up...you can do it! 💚💚💚 - Darlingwendi  1222.7 #140 4:01PM
