Mark your calendars for an intergalactic event at Disneyland! Star Wars™ Half Marathon Weekend makes its intergalactic arrival at the Disneyland Resort in 2015.
The Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend is the fourth runDisney race weekend scheduled at Disneyland in 2015, doubling the number of races in 2013.
May the fourth be with you. (Come on, I had to say that!)
This runDisney race is also a four-day race weekend (Jan 15-Jan 18, 2015) with lots of Star Wars themed events for the whole family. From Padawans to Jedi Masters – there will be kids races, a 5K, a 10K and a half marathon. And for those who show a greater strength for the Force, will be able to participate in a two-race challenge involving the 10K and the half marathon with a commemorative medal awaiting every finisher! There will be a Health and Fitness Expo and a Star Wars-themed pre-race party, plus popular Star Wars and Disney characters and other entertainment.
This Star Wars Half Marathon weekend is first collaboration with Lucasfilm, and Aerospace company Sierra Nevada Corporation will be the presenting sponsor. Lucasfilm is the force behind the Star Wars Franchise and Sierra Nevada Corporation is best known for its Dream Chaser spacecraft, the company’s solution for providing the United States with human spaceflight capability.
The Star Wars event at Disneyland Resort joins the Disneyland Half Marathon Weekend, the Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon Weekend and the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend. To learn more about runDisney overall, read my post here!
Said Howard Roffman, executive vice president of Franchise Management at Lucasfilm, “Star Wars is all about reaching deep within to realize your true potential, and runDisney embodies that message in a very real way.”
This race will truly be out of this world!
Registration opens June 10 at www.runDisney.com!
