Announcement: runDisney to have a Star Wars themed race at Disneyland Resort in January!
Just when I was done (for now, at least) with traveling to Disney for races, runDisney announces a Star Wars themed race to take place during the former Tinker Bell Half Marathon weekend dates in Disneyland.
And I’m friggin’ excited!!!!
For starters, it is Star Wars and I love, love SW! Second, nothing defines happiness like basking in the sun in the middle of winter in California, my favorite state. Third, I love Disneyland! Tinker Bell is my favorite runDisney race thus far – smaller crowds, great course, and not to mention the huge support from the spectators.
I was hoping for it to be night-time race, because that would’ve been cool. Anyway, who cares? It’s Star Wars! 🙂
Of course, runDisney had to throw in a challenge, and who doesn’t love the opportunity to earn more of that runDisney bling?
The Rebel Challenge is a 2-day challenge which involves running a 10K on Saturday and a half marathon on Sunday for a total of 19.3 miles. You must register for the Star Wars Rebel Challenge to receive the challenge medal upon completion of both races.
Registration opens June 10, 2014 at noon EST. As usual, it is predicted to sell out quickly. Sign up for email reminders on the runDisney website at rundisney.com.
Hope to see you Wookiees and Ewoks soon!
