At first there were some fist pumps of vindication..yes, runDisney has finally announced what we knew all along..a Star Wars race! Then came the Disneyland part. Whomp whomp for the East Coasters.

Check out runDisney’s blog post about the Star Wars Half Marathon and Rebel Challenge. The Star Wars races will be at the Disneyland® Resort, January 15-18, 2015! In addition to the Half Marathon, the race weekend will include a 5K, 10K, Kids Races, and a Wookiee Welcome Party. There will also be a Rebel Challenge for completing both the Half Marathon and the 10K.

Registration opens at Noon (EST) on Tuesday, June 10. I wouldn’t think about this one too long. Races have been selling out faster than ever. Follow along on social media with #LetTheWookieeWin.

First Avengers, now Star Wars. You Disneyland runners have needed some additional runDisney races, but I’ll be darned if I don’t have race envy. The only way to cure race envy is think of new costumes.  Anyone up for a group theme?
