I signed up for my first runDisney race a couple months ago, and I didn't do a ton of research on it beforehand. I just knew I had wanted to run in a Star Wars race (really, any race at Walt Disney World), so I signed up for a 5k, 10k, and half-marathon in April! Kind of on an impulse.
However, once I was registered and moved into planning our trip to Orlando, I found out a few things I wish I had known beforehand, so I want to let you know what's up so that you can make the best decision you can.
I don't want to say that I made a mistake by registering (because I am craaaaaaazy excited about running at WDW). I might have made my choices a little differently (read: actually talked to my wife about it) if I had known, you know, that runDisney race registration is non-refundable. *cough*
