View Full Version : Corral placement

I picked up my packet for the 5k. It has the letter C on it. Does that mean I'm near the front? I thought I would be in the last corral since this is my first Rundisney event.

Generally the 5K corrals go through E or F unless they made the corrals much bigger this year. For the 5Ks corral placement is kind of weird. It's a combination of if you are doing the Dopey, if you've done a 5K before and what you put done as your estimated pace.

Hmmm... I didn't put down a time since I don't have one. On the sign up I marked it's my first race. Glad to be early to step off. Better chance of not being swept.

Earlier is better. Just stay to the right in case faster runners come up from behind you. And don't worry about getting swept. Unless they are doing something different this year, they are very generous with the 5K time.

Thanks Cindy! I'm not really worried. I've trained and have a good walking pace. Still...I'm glad to be earlier.
