Walt Disney World Resort Adds Star Wars Half Marathon to List of runDisney Events

Now that the world of Star Wars is bigger than ever, here is something East coasters can look forward to. We all know that the Disneyland Resort has the Star Wars Half Marathon, but announced on Tuesday on the Disney Parks Blog, the Walt Disney World Resort will now have a similar race….the Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side. 

This event is one of the many runDisney races to take part at the resort. The weekend long event will run from April 14-17, 2016. Runners can look forward to a 5K, 10K, kids races and half marathon. There is even a running challenge called the Star Wars Dark Side Challenge, consisting of the 10K and half marathon.


Since two resorts have similar races, it was noted in the article that the Disneyland Resort Star Wars Half Marathon (January 14-17, 2016) will be themed with the Light Side of the Force while the Walt Disney World Resort Star Wars Half Marathon is themed with the Dark Side of the Force.

Registration will open on September 22. If you would like more information on runDisney events, please click here.
