Tower of Terror: Are you ready to be terrorized?

With just over a week until the Tower of Terror race weekend, it seemed the perfect time to provide all the details for this fun race weekend.  While we are unable to participate this year, we are so excited for all of you with this opportunity!
Starting line Tower of Terror 10 miler 2012!

The main event...the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-miler: Saturday, October 5th at 10:00 PM

Followed by the Disney Villains Hollywood Bash on Saturday, October 5th at 10:00 PM

Your visit to the expo will be much smoother if you bring a signed copy of your race waiver with you. The expo will have many things to occupy your time besides standing in line printing your waiver.  Last year's expo looked really fun and here is an idea of what you can expect!  RunDisney provided a chart for corral placement here.  If you think you qualify for a different corral, be sure to bring proof of time of a 10K race or longer to the runner relations booth at the Expo.

If this is your first night race, be sure to get plenty of rest during the day and don't walk your legs off in the parks!  Plan on checking a bag so you have some dry clothing to change into after running.  The after party might not be alot of fun if you are wet and cold.  Also, include wet wipes,  a plastic bag for your running clothes and a drawstring bag to hold everything.

Finally, our mother/daughter friends Allie and Sunshine ran this race last year and provided a great recap for us. We loved their costumes too!
Adorable, right?
Have a great time and please tell us all about it.  In fact, if you are interested in providing photos and comments about your race experience we would love to feature you on the blog!

  4. I'll be there, with a Great friend. This will be her first time! So Exciting!! May I also remind folks about the weather, Last year it was Very humid, dress accordingly. This years race is one week later than last year but still need to be careful. Last year there were so many people all dressed up in the best costumes, around a 1/4 to half way through, I saw more almost naked people than any other race I have done. Have Fun Y'all :-D
