Star Wars runDisney RACES!

THE RUMORS ARE TRUE! runDisney officially released word today that they are adding a Star Wars themed race to their calendar. It will be taking the old TinkerBell race weekend - in January - at Disneyland.

I saw this video on Instagram hinting at a Half Marathon "A distance measured in Parsecs. #runDisney #StarWars #LetTheWookieeWin"

And then this tweet:


The runDisney website has been updated with all the pertinent info. The most important being they will have Kids Races, a 5K, a 10K, a Half Marathon, and a Rebel Challenge.

What's left to do? DECIDE IF WE ARE GONNA RUN IT, of course! Normally I would say HECK YES! I mean Ryan LOVES Star Wars. If it was "easy" to talk him into the Avengers Half Marathon we are running in November, this would be a PIECE OF CAKE. The only issue is that it is ONLY ONE WEEK after I will have completed the Dopey Challenge. Yup, you read that right... The week prior I will have run a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and Full Marathon and SOMEHOW I am actually pondering running at least another half marathon a week after... CRAY CRAY!

Thankfully I have until next week to decide - they will have Early Registration for Annual Passholders on June 4th.

Is Star Wars your jam?

Hey Carlee, it's Liz from Facebook. Sounds like an awesome race and as long as you don't feel the need to PR I say go for it! You seem to be a really strong runner and it sounds awesome.

I really want to run it, but since it is the weekend after the marathon I can't afford it. I think I will wait until 2016.

Carlee you can definitely do this! There were soooooo many Dopey Challengers out at Tink this past January and it seems like it might be a good post-race shakeout after logging allllll those many miles. Plus the adjustment back to west coast time would feel like sleeping in :)
