FAQ on runDisney Corrals

Corrals are a big topic for any race – especially for a runDisney race.  It’s really hard to find information on corrals online, and the first time you are faced with corral assignment it can be overwhelming.   With over 50% of the participants, for a big race such as Princess, being new to runDisney, it’s an important topic to cover!
Here is my list of Frequently Asked Questions to help!

Q. What is a corral?
A corral is a group of runners that are classified by their estimated finish time.  For runDisney, the corrals are divided by letters:  A, B, C, etc.

How to Volunteer for runDisney races!


Volunteering is the one of the best things anyone can do!  You have the opportunity to give back – especially to those who have helped you along the way.  And that is what volunteering for runDisney does for me… it helps me give back to all of those volunteers who have helped on the many courses of Disney over the last 10 years! 

This past Dark Side Half Marathon Weekend, I volunteered for Noah’s Light Foundation to help during the Kids Races.  It was so much fun and was rewarding beyond words!  I’ve volunteered and run in support of different Childhood Diseases, and was honored that Noah’s Light was apart of the Dark Side Weekend.  For each race, runDisney, has a featured charity, such as Noah’s Light.  They each have a story that needs to be told and cause that desperately needs money and attention.  Noah’s Light Foundation was created to find a cure for pediatric brain cancer by supporting research in pediatric oncology, raising awareness and supporting families who are struggling with childhood cancer.  And I was honored to be a part of it!

So, How Did I Get Involved?

Princess Half Registration Tips

Updated May 2017
Registration for the 10th Anniversary of the Princess Half is just around the corner!! Tuesday, May 2nd, 12 Noon ET - to be exact!

You know this race will sell out!

Registering for a runDisney race seems simple right?  Well it can be, but it can also be stressful when the race sells out in minutes!  And the servers crash!  And you didn't get in!  

So, over the years I have learned my lessons the hard way, and I have some tips to share with you to help make registering easier!

1. Know What You Will Be Registering For:  Don't wait till you log in to think about what you are going to register for, know before you go!
  • Will you be doing the Family 5K and Kids Races?  
  • Do you need the Chear Squad for your family?
  • Will you be doing the 10K or half or both?  
  • Did you want commemorative merchandise?
  • Did you want the Pasta Party?
Make a list and be ready!
