The Run Disney races are some of my favorite . The Run Disney website describes the race as:
“Even if you live in a galaxy far, far away, you can participate in ourStar WarsVirtual Half Marathon—run on a treadmill, around your neighborhood or any course of your choosing. Whether you break up your 13.1 miles over multiple days or run it all at once, you’ll earn a collectibleStar Wars-themed medal.”
“Send your race journey into hyperspace by also participating in theStar WarsRival Run Half Marathon at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida! Complete both races and earn the covetedrunDisney Kessel Run Challenge medal.“
The virtual race can be run anywhere and even broken up into pieces. Last year, I ran three days in a row around Disneyland to complete my challenge. The last day was on the Sunday that the original Star Wars Half Marathon would have taken place. Although I miss the Disneyland Half Marathons, I had a great time doing my runs around the resort. The picture above is from the final run I took. You have 3 months to complete your challenge. You have two options with this race. You can just run the virtual half and get the medal for that event, or you can combine with with the Star Wars Rival Half Marathon at Walt Disney World in April to get and additional Kessel run medal.
Be sure to check out the Run Disney Star Wars Rival Weekend at Walt Disney World in April. If you sign up for the Kessel Run Virtual Half, you not only get your virtual Half Marathon Medal, but you will be eligible to get the Kessel Run medal when you complete the Rivals Half Marathon.
