RunDisney announces a Star Wars race weekend at Walt Disney World!

With the recent announcement of a Star Wars Land to be built at Hollywood Studios and the success of the Star Wars themed RunDisney race weekend in Disneyland; California, the announcement today of a brand new Star Wars themed race weekend in Walt Disney World; Florida to take place April probably shouldn’t come as a major surprise!

The innagural WDW Star Wars race weekend will take place April 14-16 2016 and unlike it’s counterpart in Anaheim this race weekend will celebrate the ‘Dark Side’ of the force with a 5k, 10k, Half Marathon, Kids races and challenge medal for completing both the 10k and the Half Marathon.

I don’t know about you, but not being the most ‘princessy’ of persons I can definitely see myself considering signing up for the 10k (or maybe even the half) at some point in the future… though I would perhaps be inclined to wait until Star Wars land has finished being built to add to the Star Wars experience!

What about you? Would you consider signing up for a race at Walt Disney Worlds newest race weekend? Or would you have preferred a different themed event at Walt Disney World as there is already a Star Wars event in California? Let us know in the comments below!

    1. If I didn’t live across the pond I definitely would… unfortunately transatlantic flights cost to much to justify two rundisney events in the space of 1 year lol!

  1. I’m so mad that I already registered for princess. I can’t afford both and I really want to do this one. I AM a princess kind of girl but the inaugural medal and running it for my father in-law would be amazing.
