2015 Star Wars Half Marathon Registration

As much of the running (and probably non-running) community knows by now, runDisney has recently announced a new Star Wars themed race weekend beginning next year. In January 2015, this half marathon, 10K, 5K, and Rebel Challenge (finishing both the half and 10K) will make its inaugural debut.

Today at 12 PM EST, registration opens to the public for the Star Wars race weekend. It will take place at Disneyland, California on January 15-18, 2015. If you want to register, do it immediately. When early registration opened for Annual Pass (AP) holders last Tuesday, I believe all the spots were gone in 9 minutes. These races are going to sell out extremely fast! I am kind of excited to watch the runDisney Twitter account to see just how quickly registration reaches 100%.

  3. This is one Disney race that I don't have any desire to run. I'd rather spend the money on the GSC or Dopey!

    1. Dopey trumps all the races for me! But I honestly cannot wait to run the Star Wars half, and wish I could next year. Definitely 2016 though!

    1. I am actually doing Dopey in January so I won't be running Star Wars until 2016!

  6. I signed up for Rebel Challenge as a charity runner, so I got to avoid the sell out potential. :) But I was on there this morning fighting with the 5k traffic!!

    1. That is awesome! Which charity? I hope you got into the 5K!

  7. I'm a teensy bit upset about not being able to run this, not gonna lie...kind of stinks if you had already committed to WDW Marathon Weekend, right?! My plan is for 2016, too, hopefully. :-D

    1. You and me both, but Dopey trumps all! I am stoked for that race. I will be doing the Star Wars race in 2016 too, see you there! :0)
