On April 17, 2016 I ran the Inaugural RunDisney Star Wars – The Dark Side Half Marathon at Walt Disney World in Florida. After not doing a RunDisney event for two years because they have just got so expensive, being a Star Wars Junkie, this race had me from the announcement.
To see my post on the recap of the race expo, go here.
The race weekend consisted of Kid’s Races, 5k, 10k, and the half marathon. There were also two challenge events. There was the Dark Side Challenge which was accomplished if you completed the 10k and half marathon events. There was also the Kessler Challenge. This was the biggie. It was for those runners that completed both the challenges for the Star Wars – The Light Side at Disneyland and the Star Wars – The Dark Side at Walt Disney World. I only ran the half marathon so that will be the remainder of this recap.
