Distance: 5K, 10K & 13.1
Race Name: Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend
Location: Anaheim, CA
The second annual Star Wars Half Marathon weekend once again gave runners the opportunity to mash up all that is runDisney with all that is Star Wars. Is it worth it? Is it fun? Are the medals amazing? YES! YES! YES!
Truth be told I am not a Star Wars nut. I am a runDisney nut. Don't get me wrong...I like me some Chewy and R2D2! Just don't expect me to know all the Star Wars facts and storylines...
So you want to run this event? Sign up when registration opens...literally the minute it goes on sale. Check the rundisney.com website for sale dates.
What do you get?
The 5K includes a non-timed race, race bib, finisher's medallion (rubber medal), a cotton t-shirt and a reason to take a Friday off work.
The 10K & Half each include an actual medal and long sleeve tech-shirts.
The Rebel Challenge includes the 10K & Half medals PLUS a challenge medal and a bonus challenge long sleeve tech-shirt.
This year I signed up for the 5K and the Rebel Challenge.
Not only do you have the opportunity to take pictures with Disney cast members dressed up in amazing Star Wars costumes, the course portion outside the parks includes a lot of support from Star Wars super fans sporting their best cosplay outfits! Literally a Star Wars fan dream come true!
Show me the pictures!!!! :-)
