    Thank you! I definitely plan on setting up the account ahead of time. I might even have done it tonight but I got distracted reading running articles available on the site!

    I have a lot to learn and, even though I've been a long-time walker, averaging 4 mi/hr, 20 mi/wk, it's worlds apart from running. I probably should work up to a 5k or 10k or two in the upcoming year. An Active account will be handy for all that, I'm sure!

    I see the dates for the 2019 marathon weekend are January 9th through the 13th, but has it been announced which races will be which days?

    Awesome! Thank you! I'm hoping to do my first ever 10K then.

    Quick question to the group. If you register for a Disney race after the proof of time deadline, are you in the last corral or do you get a chance to enter your proof of time? I am registering through a charity and may not get my registration before the deadline and wanted to make sure I was not in the last corral.

    As with all runDisney, past doesn't always equal future. With that being said, from my understanding from what I've seen from others is that as long as

    A) Your POT is before the actual POT deadline regardless of when you register

    And

    B) You register before about 4 weeks prior to the event (about when charity registration becomes due)

    Then you are PROBABLY going to be corralled appropriately based on your POT. The earlier you can sign up though the more comfortable you should be able to feel. Although I make no guarantees because things can change. Try asking the charity to see what info they've got on it.

    Do you know when DVC registration for the 2019 Marathon is available? It's usually about a week before if I remember right...

    They have changed it. Now it is the Thursday before general registration. So 5 days before.
