Dum Dum Dum, Dum-te-Dum, Dum-te-DumrunDisney has announced another race competition weekend. The rumored and highly anticipated Star Wars race has been announced for Disneyland. I do have to put on a sad pouting face for a second as I was certain this series was coming to Florida.
The race will take place from January 15th through January 18th at Disneyland Resort. There will be multiple races throughout the weekend including a 5K, 10K and Half Marathon along with a special participant medal for those who sign up for the 19.3 mile Star Wars Challenge.
Registration opens on June 4th for Annual Passholders and June 10th for the public. Due to the popularity of runDisney events and combining it with Star Wars, be ready for a record sell out time. May the Force be with you.............sorry, I had to :)
From the official runDisney press-release:
Joining forces with one of Hollywood’s most iconic brands, runDisney is creating another transportive race weekend – the Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend presented by Sierra Nevada Corporation at Disneyland Resort. The intergalactic journey begins January 15 and runs through January 18, 2015. The Star Wars event is the fourth runDisney race weekend scheduled for 2015 at Disneyland Resort, doubling the number of races held in 2013.
The new race weekend offers runners a variety of race experiences for all levels, from Padawans to Jedi Masters – kids races, a 5K, a 10K and a half marathon. And for those who show an event greater strength for the Force, there will be a two-race challenge involving the 10K and the half marathon with a commemorative medal awaiting every finisher.
In addition, there will be a slew of family-friendly events throughout the weekend, including a Health and Fitness Expo and a Star Wars-themed pre-race party, plus popular Star Wars and Disney characters and other entertainment. Registration opens June 10 at www.runDisney.com.
