    We finally have another race capacity update for you - I was beginning to wonder what was going on.

    Wine & Dine is now at 80%, ToT 78%, WDW Marathon 57%, WDW Half Marathon 80%, and Goofy is now at 62%.

    Remember, Princess registration officially opens June 11th. Tinker Bell opens July 9th. There is a lot of fun running (and lots of new bling) on the horizon!

    The two currently open runDisney half marathons continue their fast race to capacity. As of this morning, Wine & Dine is at 94% and WDW Half is at 93%. Both are selling out MUCH faster than in 2012; W&D is over two months ahead of last year's pace and WDW Half is running four months ahead! We know that the Dopey drove some of the early numbers for WDW but what is driving W&D? C2C? More interest in night running?

    If you or someone you know is considering either event, I wouldn't put off registration too much longer.

    2013 Wine & Dine Half Marathon is now at 99% capacity!

    2014 WDW Half Marathon is now at 97% capacity!

    Do NOT delay registration if either of these events are on your race schedule!

    As of 3:20 p.m. PST, the 2013 Wine & Dine Half Marathon is officially SOLD OUT!

    In 2010, the inaugural Wine & Dine Half Marathon took 5 months, 14 days to sell out (not including the 8 days a wait list was open).

    In 2011, the Wine & Dine Half Marathon took 3 months, 28 days to sell out.

    In 2012, the Wine & Dine Half Marathon took 4 months, 16 days to sell out.

    In 2013, the Wine & Dine Half Marathon took 2 months, 2 days to sell out!

    Wow...can't wait to see what 2014 (the 5th anniversary event) brings.

    Yup. New medal. Welcome to the club - runDisney bling is terribly addictive! I'm still waiting to hear what they will call those of us who will have completed all five W&D half marathons.

    Looks like capacity for Tower of Terror took a big 'bump in the night'. Registration for the 2013 event jumped from 81% to 88% since the last update! There are smaller increases for the 2014 WDW Marathon and Goofy Challenge as well.

    Heads up - ToT 10-Miler is now at 91% capacity. Usually hitting the 90's is a good sign that registration will probably close sooner than later so if you are at all thinking about the 2013 event, NOW is the time to get yourself registered!

    One more reminder. The first price jump for WDW Marathon weekend events is coming up. Registration jumps from $160 to $175 for the marathon and from $340 to $370 for the Goofy Challenge on June 19th. If you are considering doing either event but tend to procrastinate in signing up, save yourself a few bucks and do it before yet another Disney price increase gets you!
