Are you ready to rule the galaxy at the inaugural runDisney Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side at Walt Disney World Resort? We’ve put together dark side-inspired looks to pack for the weekend and give you unlimited power.

The Force is strong with these looks. These outfits were pulled together for myself and our friends at Star Wars, Matt Martin and Cole Horton, to wear during the weekend. Matt is a part of Lucasfilm Story Group and Cole is a Star Wars contributor as well as the author of Star Wars-related books. Not only will they be running in numerous events throughout the weekend, they are speakers at the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo with their series “Running Through The Galaxy.” Anyone can attend for an exclusive look at the past, present, and future of the Star Wars saga from these runners’ point of view.
