In honor of Star Wars Day, Walt Disney World announced the Star Wars Rival Run Weekend for 2019.
The Star Wars race weekend will celebrate the epic rivalries of the space saga. Runners will choose which side of the Force they’re running for during the event weekend, which takes place from April 4 – 7, 2019. Race distances are geared for all skill levels, with 5K, 10K, half marathon and runDisney Kids Races.
Once again, there will be two challenges for runners to face:
- The Star Wars Rival Run Challenge requires runners to complete the 10K and half marathon during the race weekend.
- The runDisney Kessel Run Challenge requires completion of the Star Wars Rival Run Half Marathon at Walt Disney World Resort and running the Star Wars Virtual Half Marathon at home.
Regardless of which side of the Force you’re on, you’ll encounter Star Wars characters on your journey to the finish line.
