Runners embraced the light side at the runDisney Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend at the Disneyland Resort. We saw runners choose styles from the original Star Wars films such as Luke and Leia, and many runners who felt the Force as BB-8, Rey and Finn.

Our Star Wars friends Matt Martin and Cole Horton joined us this past weekend. Matt manages digital content and community relations at Lucasfilm and Cole is a Star Wars contributor as well as the author of Star Wars related books. Congratulations to Matt Martin for completing his first Star Wars 5K and Cole Horton who accomplished his mission in the Star Wars Rebel Challenge! We celebrated at Star Wars Launch Bay in Disneyland park afterward, in our outfits from New Balance and Champion.


Here are a few of our favorite looks from the weekend. Congrats to all participants on fulfilling your destiny!

Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side is coming to Walt Disney World Resort. We can’t wait for you to join us.
