Details About the Upcoming Star Wars Half Marathon at Disney World

From April 14-17th, Disney is going to be turning Walt Disney World into a gigantic Star Wars-themed fun run.

The inaugural running of the Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side, will cap off a weekend of running activities at the resort which will include a 10k, 5k and kids races.

All of the races begin at Epcot with the half marathon and 10k ending in ESPN Wide World of Sports. They also begin pretty early (5 and 6am!), presumably to avoid runners having to dodge regular park visitors.

There are about a million themed races out there these days, but this one definitely sounds cool. More info about the various races, including registration info, can be found here.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 7 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.Other interests include Disney, Sports, 80's Nostalgia, LEGO, Star Wars and Tech Gadgets.
