    2014 Half Marathon/Dumbo Double Dare

    I was considering training for the Half Marathon or Dumbo Double Dare this year, but found the races filled some 200+ days out. When do they open the races so that I can set my sights on 2014?

    I want to say it was sometime in February? Just make sure you "like" the RunDisney page on Facebook. The Tink will open registration in July. Something tells me they'll have a similar challenge.

    Registration for the 2013 DL Half opened on January 22nd and sold out within 26 hours. The Dumbo Double Dare sold out within 2 hours.

    As sir clinksalot mentioned, "like" the runDisney Facebook page. They will let you know when registration is going to open.

    Yikes! That is a narrow window to enter. Any other options if they sell out? Clubs or charity groups?

    There are charity groupos. I believe most of the groups are sold out for Dumbo Double Dare for 2013. They may have Half Marathon slots available. Check out the runDisney web site. There is information about charity groups on the Disneyland Half Marathon page.

    For those of you thinking of running a Disney race, be sure to check out my article from yesterday.

    On the RunDisney site you can sign up to be notified when registration is going to open. There's also usually an AP/Disney Visa card pre-sale, which they mention on the RunDisney and AP Facebook pages.

    They should still have some spots with charities, as mentioned. The other way in at this point might be through tour operators, who also usually have spots available long after the race sells out. They should have those listed on the RunDisney site.

    I think Team In Training just started registering for the DL Half. Link to the registration page: Half, Full & Ultra Marathons

    Look at charities. I had to do that one year when I signed up 3 weeks prior and it cost me $700 to run. Didn't think I was going to be able to make it that year and my schedule opened up at the last minute.
