Encounter a Weekend of Galactic Fun!

It’s an epic Star Wars weekend featuring rivalries from the galactic saga. Meet some of your favorite Star Wars Characters, pose for photos and earn collectible themed medals! Become part of an immersive event and experience Star Wars in a whole new way. Join us—and may the Force be with you!

I’ll be the first to admit that I do NOT know much about Star Wars. Guys, I’ve tried, but… I am still so clueless!

The good news is I am pretty sure I have a good grasp on who’s a good guy and who’s a bad guy – and that’s very important when it comes to the race themes for the Star Wars Rival Run Half Marathon Weekend!

One of the most unique elements of this race is the opportunity to choose your side – something that isn’t offered on other race weekends at Walt Disney World.

Recently, runDisney shared a preview of the weekend’s artwork, celebrating all-new combos of many of the saga’s greatest icons… .and I am HERE FOR IT!!
