The Star Wars Half Marathon – The Light Side race event returns to the Disneyland Resort from January 12-15, 2017. During this weekend event, there’s a run for Jedi Knights and Padawans of every age and skill level including the Star Wars Half Marathon – The Light Side, Star Wars 10K and Star Wars 5K, and the runDisney Kid Races. Today, I have a sneak preview of new commemorative products that will be offered at the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo.

  • For Melissa- you can only pre order the Dark Side Dooney And Bourke bags if you are signed up for the race. Otherwise you have to go to the expo and hope they have some available. I just tried the link myself to see if I could pre order a purse.

  • Hi there! I was wondering what the new process is to pre-purchase a Dooney and Bourke bag? I do not see any links on the runDisney website nor can I find any information on the Internet. I’m really looking for information on pre-purchasing a bagood from the Stars Wars Dark Side in April. Thanks for your help!

  • Hello, Is there a chance to still purchase some items. I saw a performance jacket for the Rebel Challenge that I would like to get but didn’t have time to stay at the expo to get it.

  • Went to the early merchandise sale this morning. According to the CM, the race ornament above is only for pre-sale only and will not be available at the expo. Very, very disappointed.

  • These are amazing!! I wish I could read what it says on the Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend magnet/shirt with the outline of Luke holding the lightsaber straight in the air!

    • @Cortney – The quote says, “The Longing You Seek Is Not Behind You, It Is In Front of You.”

  • Steven will there be Rebel Challenge jackets available.

  • Do cast member discounts apply for the Dooney’s?

    • @Jessica – From my understanding, normal Cast Member discounts would apply.

  • What does the “Pro jacket” look like this year? The one you preorder at registration. Its always different then the ones at the expo.

  • Did they change Half-Marathon medal for the pin? Or just seeing “other side” of the spinner on the pin here?

    • @Matt – The medal has not changed. You are correct – it’s the other side of the medal in the image above.

  • Hi Steven — No Dooney & Bourke bags??

    • @Catherine and Katherine – There will be three Dooney & Bourke bags. I did not have final samples of them at time of press. They will contain an all-over patch design featuring characters such as R2-D2, C-3PO, Chewbacca, and BB-8. Designs will include the following. Please note all retails are subject to change without notice.
      ——
      Slim Wristlet – $108
      Small Crossbody – $208
      Crossbody – $248

  • Do you know what style Dooney and Bourke bags will be released?
