Star Wars Run Disney Weekend at The Disneyland Resort


This is the big week! The official weekend of the Inaugural Star Wars Run Disney Race at the Disneyland Resort on January 15th through the 18th. Run Disney hosts a series of races every year at The Disneyland Resort, and this weekend is the first ever Star Wars themed series.

I’ve run three Disneyland Half Marathons in the past, and they are by far the most fun, best organized and awesome. The race trail goes throughout the Disneyland Resort, and the majority of the course is flat. If you’re new to running then you probably, can appreciate a nice flat course.


This race announcement started early last spring and sold out on the first day! The buzz and talk amongst the social media crowd have me so excited to run this race that I even put together a costume to run in… which I never do. I am running for the Imperial, which if you are not a Star Wars fan, means I am running for the dark side!

There are four different races going on from Friday to Sunday. There is a 5K on Friday Morning, a 10K on Saturday, and the kids race through Downtown Disney and the big Half Marathon on Sunday. I am running the 10K this time on Saturday and couldn’t be more anxious. Hopefully, the Force will be with me, and I will fly through the course!

Follow my journey this weekend online on Social Media, and if you’re running…”May the force be with you!”
