And though organizers chose not to call it the Star Wars Hyperspace Half Marathon Weekend of Epic Intergalactic Awesome — the suggestion I offered up a few months ago in a very apropos post called 5 Reasons runDisney Needs a Star Wars Race — no hard feelings … even if I totally called it. BECAUSE STAR WARS.
Taking place at the Disneyland Resort January 15-18, 2015, the newest race weekend will include a half marathon, 10K, 5K, Kids Races, Wookiee Welcome Party, and an Expo. Those who manage the Rebel Challenge will be rewarded for completing both the Half Marathon and the 10K. Bonus points for wielding a lightsaber at the same time. Pshwoom!
Registration will open at noon ET on Tuesday, June 10 and will no doubt crash all the Internets. Be sure to sign up for runDisney email alerts to make sure you don’t miss out.
Until then, May the Course be with you! #LetTheWookieeWin
