ToT 10-miler

The newest runDisney race, the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10 miler, intrigues me.  It's another night race, like the Wine and Dine.  The race has a little bit of a "spooky" tone to it.  It runs September 29th, so sort of Halloween-ish time frame.  And the post race party is Disney villains-themed in Hollywood Studios.  I thought that sounded amazing.  Based on that, I can only assume that the race course entertainment will follow a similar theme.

I was a little disappointed that we didn't register to run this race since it's the inaugural race and usually the medals are special.  But when I spent some time looking at the course details, I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed.  The course is mostly on Disney highways and doesn't pass through a park until the finish.  It does wind around the Wide World of Sports complex and I anticipate that in true Disney fashion, they'll have tons of on course entertainment, but for me, the parks are really the draw for these races.  

As with all of the longer races, there is a 5k and a kids race as well.  Both the Happy Haunted Trail Run 5k and the kid's races take place at Disney's Wide World of Sports

So are you running the Tower of Terror 10 miles?
