    Click here for the size chart of the shirts.

    Guess I pick the right size; the shirts are rather big according to that table.
    The bust measurement for the mens 'M', my size, is a 104-108 cm one.
    Brands like Nike, Asics, Under Armoud and some famous dutch races (the one where I have three shirts from ..) use that measurement as a L size shirt. Their M sizes shirts are closer to an average of 100 cm (ranging 97-103 most of the time)

    Thanks @RunningKoen. Being one of the few people on the planet who chooses not to on FB I sometimes miss out on info.

    Now you're one of two. I don't like social media and thus have no accounts - Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. WDWMagic is the closest I get....

    You're welcome! This is one of the reasons why I am not that happy with the most important communication about DLP half is done through FB or twitter, while their official site is outdated.

    It's great they are communicating, seeing some runDisney standards on this forum. But still, a working and up to date site would be the best.

    They show some merchandise shirts (no sponsor on the back, so not the race shirt) and reveal some route info and medals. Love it, need to have that male shirt. For real.

    Bib vouchers etc. are available. Half marathon course leaked, and we're one way away.
    Time to fly through the course. My pic is from last weekend/ also a test pic from the Tower of Terror.

    Where did you see the half course? I would have thought that we would have received the event guide by now but I've not seen anything. Extended weather forecast looks like it will be a bit chillier than last year...

    ED92 had a pic, with first and last crossing times for several points; that pic was deleted due to security reasons (or it was rumoured as reason). The picture without times is circulating online, but I'm not sure if I should help the circulation of it any futher; I can understand the security reasons and wait for rD to officially release it.

    Its quite a change; we exit the DLP area at a different point (through the parking lot at the nothern point of the driveway; no longer the western point at the parade backstage area) and the route is more focused on the north east area around DLP. Finish is completely inside the studio's, where we start and finish. Some parts of the parc are used back and forth. The people in the last corral will see people finishing I guess.

    @RunningKoen Thanks for posting the link - my correspondence is always in French but my friends don't read it as well as I do so an English guide means I don't have to translate :)

    Wow, an in park finish line. I'm impressed. It saddens me to think it's been a year now since I've been there. Have fun all.

    Sounds great, less practical. Too little space to do it decently.

    Found myself at a picture of the rundisney international facebook

    Yes, I agree that particularly for the 5 km the finish was not practical - especially with all the idiots who stopped RIGHT BEFORE THE FINISH to take a selfie. And having characters "dancing" a few meters before the finish was not a good idea either as that too created bottlenecks. I heard it took nearly an hour for all the 5 km corrals to start Friday night - is that true?

    I started mid corral C during the 5 and starting took over 45 minutes for us, so I guess an hour is possible. Faster than 2016. The idea of the corrals around the lake was quite good actually.

    2018 dates are confirmed since they already sold package deals at the expo.
