Avid runDisney racers, runners, and “Star Wars” fans may want to take their “Star Wars” runDisney journeys to the next level during “Star Wars” weekend. “Star Wars” runDisney racers can take on the “Star Wars” Kessel Run Challenge, an epic race saga which includes running the “Star Wars” Virtual Half Marathon at home before traveling to Walt Disney World Resort, then completing the “Star Wars” Rival Run Half Marathon or Challenge at Walt Disney World Resort. For more details on the races and registration and completion deadlines, visit the Kessel Run Challenge page on the runDisney website.
Additionally, there are benefits to registering for the runDisney “Star Wars” races early. Racers who register by January 15, 2019, will be given the opportunity to choose their side, Light or Dark, which will be revealed on race weekend through the design of their race bib. And as always, no matter what side you are on, you can showcase your allegiance and Disney style through a costume on the day of your race! But be warned: those who register for the race on January 16 or later will have their fate chosen by the Force. So what will it be: the Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire?
