Race Bib & Corral Assignment
Each runner is assigned a race bib. Please wear the race bib centered on the front of your outermost garment. It is the responsibility of the runner to wear his or her bib during the race, as well as to know the following:
In order to receive an accurate time, please confirm that your bib is:
Clearly visible on the front of the torso
Unaltered and unmodified (do not fold or wrinkle or iron)
Pinned in all four corners
Not covered with shirts, jackets, winter wear, runner belts, water bottles, etc.
If a runner is seen without his or her bib number while running on the course, he or she will be removed from the course for security and safety reasons.
The letter on your bib will determine your assigned corral. Letters are assigned based on proof of time provided for the half marathon, marathon, or your estimated finishing time. Letters are based on anticipated pace per mile for the 5K and 10K.
No corral changes will be made at the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo.
Remember to fill out the Emergency Medical Information on the back of the bib number.
Race Bib Pick-Up
Your race bib will be issued at the Race Bib Pick-Up area inside the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo during regularly scheduled hours, as follows:
You must pick up your own race bib, which includes your event-issued bib number and timing device (no timing device for 5K or Kids Races).
Parents or legal guardians must download and complete the personalized race waiver for minors in order to pick up their race bibs.
Download and complete your personalized race waiver online—available approximately 2 weeks prior to event.
You must have a valid photo ID in order to pick up your race bib (driver's license, passport, Military ID, Government issued ID). No exceptions.
The payer or registrant may also pick up their ChEAR Squad packets at the same time.
Transportation is only provided to and from the Walt Disney World Host Resorts and parking is limited at all venues. We strongly recommend taking event transportation whenever possible. If you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, transportation to the race weekend is included.
Guests staying at non-Disney accommodations will need to provide their own transportation to runDisney weekend events. Look for detailed transportation information in the Official Digital Event Guide available approximately one month out from your event.
