Star Wars Half Marathon weekend presented by Sierra Nevada Corporation coming to the Disneyland Resort January 15 - 18, 2015.
The weekend will include:
- Star Wars Half Marathon - Sunday
- Star Wars 10k - Saturday
- Star Wars 5k - Friday
- Rebel Challenge (Half Marathon + 10k)
- Kids Races - Saturday
- Expo - Thursday - Saturday
- Wookie Welcome Party - Thursday
- Amazing announcers - Carissa & Rudy (who I hope they dress like yoda!)
This evens the California and Florida RunDisney calendar with 4 major events on each coast and fills the spot opened when the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend moved from January to May. I know that many people were hoping Star Wars would come to Orlando in May to coincide with Star Wars weekend, but I am a huge fan of the west coast races. The weather will be perfect and I know this is an inaugural event that you won't want to miss.
If you think you have the "force" to run then make sure you sign up as soon as registration opens at noon EST on June 10, 2014. Avengers sold out in 2 hours people...get on it if you want to run!
I also want to point out that there will be some intergallactically (not a word, but roll with it) stellar runners who complete the Dopey Challenge in Orlando, Castaway Cay 5k on the cruise, AND the Rebel Challenge. If my math is correct that's 12 medals in 11 days. Better bring an extra suitcase.
Are you going to sign up for Star Wars?
What do you think of these new races?
Who would you dress up as?
Love and there is no try,
Carissa & Kyle
