Kids One Mile Run
Enter your young Padawans in their very own race and they, too, can have their own medal. The longer of the 2 kids races is the one-mile run.
Kids 100 meter, 200 meter and Diaper Dash
If 1 mile is too long for your small Sith Lords, consider the 100 or 200-meter races or the tiny Diaper Dash for those cute younglings who are still in the crawling stage.
Some races have sold out, but be sure to check the runDisney website for more information on registration and bib availability. And may the force be with you!
