    Come cheer with Team MousePlanet at the 2014 Disneyland Half Marathon and 10K

    Team MousePlanet is back for our 5th Cheer Station at a Disneyland Resort runDisney event, and we're looking for YOU!

    Due to requests from runners who participated in the 10K last year, we are going to look at supporting both the 10K and Half Marathon events. The 10K station will be a cheer-only station, and the half marathon station will be the full oranges / licorice / sponges / silly signs extravaganza from last year.

    Details and locations are a long way off, simply because we don't have finalized course maps yet, but I encourage those of you who want to help out to add your name here and keep watching for more details. We'll need help with sign making, orange slicing, and of course along the course during the events.

    We will provide everything for the runners, all you need to bring is yourself and a great attitude! Hope you can join us!

    If you're the smartest person in the room, you're in the wrong room.

    Don't forget to order the wedge blade for the orange slicer.

    First Half Marathon - TinkerBell - January 19th, 2014

    It's amazing what is possible in just one year.

    I'm planning on cheering for all three races and can help with prep as needed, especially since I'm not doing any of the races.

    The four of us were the "non-political friends" contingent.

    I'm pretty sure that I have some TMM'ers that are not running Sunday that plan on being cheer and support staff. They're a load of fun (probably because I met them here) and might be willing to help you.

    I'm in! As soon as I decided NOT to run this event, my first thought was, "but I'll go cheer!"

    I can't believe we're only a month (25 days) out from this race. There have been some changes to what I posted back in January. Several people who were planning to staff a new cheer station for the 10K race were able to register for that event through Team Muscle Makers, so we either need other Padders to volunteer to run that station, or we need to scale back to the Half Marathon only.

    10K Cheer Station [pending]

    Here's the map of the 10K course. The ideal location is at the corner of Harbor and Disney Way, right before the course returns to Disney property. This is a good location because it's a short walk back to the finish line, and it's before the mile 2 mark so you're only active for about an hour.

    There IS room to put up our race signs in the Harbor median, and in the planters between the sidewalk and the curb. If someone wants to volunteer to run that station and deal with the signs, that would be awesome. You're best access to drop off and pick up the signs will be via the 7-11 parking lot before the city closes the street for the race, and again after they reopen the road.

    Half Marathon Cheer and Support Station

    Here's the link to the Half Marathon course. Once again, we will be along Katella Blvd between mile markers 6 & 7. I'll have exact details in a few days, but we hope to be in the same location as before.

    This is the full orange / licorice / sponges / silly signs extravaganza that Team MousePlanet has become known for. The response to our 2013 support station was overwhelming, and I am so looking forward to being back on the course to support as many runners as possible.

    There is a lot of prep that goes into this, and we can use volunteers to help with three specific tasks.

    1) Making signs. Our personalized race signs were a huge hit last year, and we're doing them again. I have a few ideas on where and when to meet - might I be able to interest a group in meeting at the Anaheim Packing House on Thursday, 8/28 to make them? They have a Community Room we can reserve, which would give us space to work.

    2) Cutting oranges, preparing sponges, filling ice chests and packing the cars. This will happen at my house on Saturday 8/30 AFTER the 10K.

    3) CHEERING! We need lots of people to show up at Disney-dark-hundred to help set up the tent, put out the signs, hand out the oranges and cheer their hearts out. The more the merrier!

    If you're interested in any/all of the above, please reply to this post so we can make firm plans.

    If you're the smartest person in the room, you're in the wrong room.

    Ken and I are available for the cheer station on the 31st. We have plans after the 10K, lasting through that evening, so won't be able to come by for slice n' pack. Of course, we will bring tables and canopies Sunday morning. We also have two large coolers we can get to Tony prior to the 30th for the oranges. Let me know if you want us to grab the oranges from the farmer's market earlier that week, so we can get those to you ahead of time as well.

    I'm in for item 3. Have plans after the 10k, otherwise would help with 2, too.

    Re the signs for the 10k: I'm thinking since it's before mile 2 it's still going to fairly congested, so it may be very hard to see the signs. But cheering would wonderful!

    From those of us participating in the weekend events, a BIG THANK YOU to AVP and everyone helping at the MousePlanet Cheer Station. Seeing your smiling faces is always a wonderful boost and an orange slice is a bit of heaven about that time in the half.

    I'll be at the cheer station for the half marathon, and can help with prep on Saturday afternoon if needed.

    Have to take DH to the airport Saturday morning, so I can't cheer for the 10K, but I can be there for the prep work and for the station on Sunday.

    I'm in to help with whatever you need---but suspect that actually being AT the cheer stations may be logistically difficult for me. But certainly can help with sign-making and prep.

    Any update on time/place for prep work on Saturday?


  19. #18

    I'm in for sign making on Thursday if that's still happening. I'm not sure about Sunday yet, because I'd like to see what it's like to not drive down to Anaheim on a 3 day weekend for a change.

    Update:

    Sign making, sponge cutting and sign making will be at my house Saturday afternoon from 3-6ish. I have a tiny house, so we'll work in my shaded back patio. If you're planning to help, please PM me for the address.

    Thanks!

    I'm guessing you mean orange cutting in there somewhere?

    PM'd. Also is there anything you need us to bring (knives, scissors, markers, etc.)?
