New Proof of Time Requirements for 2014

runDisney has announced new proof of time guidelines for 2014.  Some key points to note here are that if you don’t have proof of time you will be starting in the LAST corral.  Also, you will no longer be able to change your corral at runner relations…all proof of time data must be submitted via email well in advance of the race.

Here is info straight from the runDisney site:

If you believe you will finish the Half Marathon in less than 3:15 hours or the Marathon in less than 6:30 hours, proof of time is required for start corral placement. Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge and Dopey Challenge participants should adhere to Full Marathon proof of time requirements. Please reference the Race Pacing Chart below for finish times and associated pacing per mile.

A proof of time must be provided from a certified race reflecting results after January 1, 2012.

  • Half Marathon – 10K or longer
  • Full Marathon – 10 Miles or longer

A valid proof of time provided at the time of registration must include the following*:

  • Name of Race
  • Distance
  • City
  • State
  • Date
  • Finish time

*For example, Walt Disney World Marathon, 26.2, Orlando, FL, 1/13/13, – 3:35

If you do not have a proof of time to submit, list “N/A” at the point of registration. If proof of time is not provided by November 1, 2013 you will be placed in the last start corral. If your proof of time data is incomplete or cannot be verified, you will be placed in the last start corral. To provide or update your proof of time, you must email all proof of time data requested above to disneysports@trackshack.com. No corral changes will be made after November 1, 2013.

As a reminder, you will no longer be able to bring proof of your estimated finish time to the Runner Relations booth during the Expo and have your start corral placement changed.

Dates, times and prices subject to change. All races are subject to capacity limits and may close at any time.
