Walt Disney World Resort Feels the Dark Side of the Force in All New Star Wars Half Marathon Event


The Disney Parks Blog announced a new runDisney event coming to Walt Disney World, The Star Wars Half Marathon. The event will take place from April 14-17, 2016 and it will include a 5K, 10K, kids races and half marathon plus a special challenge for completing the 10K and half marathon called the Star Wars Dark Side Challenge.

The event will include Dark side-inspired medals and merchandise throughout the weekend.

This comes on the heels of the successful Disneyland Star Wars Marathon event. To differentiate the event on both coasts, the Disneyland event will focus on the Light Side of the force while the Disney World event will focus on the Dark Side.

Registration for the East Coast event opens September 22, 2015 at noon ET.
