Around the timing for the half, get to your corral as early as possible. The 3:30 doesn't start till the last person is out of the starting gate. Even if you are in the last corral, being at the front of it rather than the back makes a huge difference. Last year it took us over 40 mins to get to the starting line after the first runners went and we were probably 1/4 of the way through the last corral. Just gives you a bit more time to survive it

I'm definitely wearing my medals all weekend! So you won't be the only one. Are you dressing up for the runs too?

Sounds good! I'll definitely try to get there early then, just a bit worried about freezing while waiting... Not used to running in cold weather anymore!

Not dressing up but I'll be wearing a Sparkle skirt! 🙂

I'm on my way train to Manchester airport now, Easyjet flight to Paris then TGV to Disney!

My case is so full of running outfits I could barely fit any normal clothes in lol I've got Belle for the 5k, Maleficent for the 10k & 25th anniversary Minnie for the half!

Travelling solo but meeting up with some other runners tonight & my room mate (& fellow Dibber) arrives tomorrow

I ordered some foil blankets from Amazon a couple of weeks ago but it's a bit late now for you. Why don't you head to the new primark in the shopping centre in Marne Le Valle and grab the cheapest jumper you can find? Then just before you set off ditch it. Few quid saves you being freezing? Also cheaper than anything you'll find in Disney.

Can't wait to finish work tonight. Our flight is 7am from Manchester airport so early get up tomorrow.

Tinker82, great costumes! Especially Maleficent!

I did try to look out for foil blankets but they seemed to be in very short supply where I am! But thanks for the suggestion, I've just popped in to primark and picked up a couple of cheap jackets so I should hopefully be warm (plus I saw on Facebook that they are donating clothing left there)!

Currently in a very long queue to get into the expo...
