It’s hard to believe that Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend starts TODAY after all of the craziness surrounding Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend only a few days ago. But it is here and runDisney has released a preview of some of the gear you will find at the Expo to prove it! Right off the bat, I’m in love with the retro design on everything…super cool! Let’s take a look:
Star Wars Half Marathon Gear
Star Wars 5K, 10K & Rebel Challenge Gear
Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend Gear
I would like ALL of the drinkware please. They really did a knock out job with these designs!
2016 Star Wars Half Marathon Dooney & Bourke Bags
I have to say I’m not in love with the white background for these bags. I’m still kicking myself that I didn’t get one of the 2015 bags, but you live and learn. My only hope is that they will come out with a darker design for the Dark Side Weekend in May. Fingers crossed.
Remember, if you are headed to the Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend Health & Fitness Expo, make sure to arrive early if you have your heart set on a particular item. Interested in snagging a pair of the new 2016 New Balance runDisney shoes, including the Ariel Vazee Pace? Don’t forget to sign up for the Virtual Queue in order to get your pair.
Well I’m certainly jealous of everyone running this weekend and getting this gear! The Expo opens today at the Disneyland Hotel at 10:00 am PST and will be open through Saturday to pick up this merch, visit with numerous other vendors and hear the great runDisney Speaker Series.
What are you looking forward to getting?

Yesterday runDisney released a first look at some of the merchandise you will find at the Health & Fitness Expo during Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. (Side note: Shouldn’t they just be calling it WDW Marathon WEEK by now??) There are the usual shirts and hats, but there are also some fun new additions this year. Let’s check it all out!
runDisney WDW Marathon Weekend 2016
Right off the bat, I’m loving the use of the original Walt Disney World logo. It gives everything a bit of a retro feel which this WDW enthusiast loves! My favorite item at any runDisney race weekend is the glassware, pint glasses in particular. I collect them from all the races I’ve done and use them as my daily water glasses. It’s a fun daily reminder of those events!
WDW 5K, WDW 10K & Kids Races
As usual, the merch for the Kids Races is the coolest! Steamboat Willie is super cute and I just love the “Future Runner” shirt. I might have to pick one of those up in the future for a certain little someone 😉
WDW Half Marathon
Look…pants! From the photo, they look like women’s capris, but it sounds like there will be both pants and shorts available for certain races. Their a bit busy for my taste, but I like that they are adding new items.
Goofy’s Race & a Half Challenge
Come to think of it, all these designs are a bit busy this year. What are your thoughts? I’m sure this is only a fraction of what you will find at the Expo. I can’t wait to see what the 2016 Vinylmation looks like!
If you are headed to the WDW Marathon Weekend Health & Fitness Expo, make sure to arrive early if you have your heart set on a particular item. Also, stay tuned for information in the next few days on the new runDisney New Balance shoe design that will be released at the Expo.
What do you have your sights set on?
|February 13, 2015||Posted by Running at Disney under Princess Half Marathon Weekend, runDisney Merchandise|
Probably the best part about runDisney race weekends is all of the exclusive merchandise available at the Health & Fitness Expo. There’s nothing like having some great commemorative items to take home with you to remember your big accomplishment!
Princess Half Marathon Weekend is right around the corner and there are some great new items you’ll be able to pick up. Let’s check them out!
Frozen has taken over as the main theme of the weekend and you can find snowflakes and characters on many of the items. There is also the addition of a pink runDisney Magic Band to go with the blue design that was introduced over Marathon weekend.
This is the 2nd year for the Glass Slipper Challenge and they have knocked it out of the park with these turquoise and black designs. I just LOVE that wine glass!
Ahhh BondiBands…my running must have! Look at all of designs you’ll have to choose from!
Another new addition to the race merchandise are these fun phone cases…looks like they can be customized too!
And of course, no Princess Weekend would be complete without the ultimate accessory, a Disney Dooney & Bourke purse! These new Princess designs are whimsical and fun…perfect for this royal event.
Earlier today, New Balance released NEW design in their runDisney collection that will be release over Princess Half Marathon weekend. Over Marathon Weekend the new Steamboat Willie inspired 990v3 shoes and now they are introducing 860v5’s in similar designs and capturing the spirit of the Sorcerer Mickey and Pink Polka Dot Minnie designs from the 2014 collection.
The shoes will only be available at Health and Fitness Expos during the runDisney event weekend. To minimize waiting in line for shoes, New Balance has created a virtual queue to let you know when it’s your turn to be fitted and make your purchase. Starting on Thursday, February 19, starting at 6 a.m. runners can sign up at NBvirtualqueue.com using their bib number. Non-runners can sign up daily, pending inventory.
Are you excited about the new designs or are they leaving you feeling a little grey??
As a reminder the Fit for a Princess Expo will be held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and the hours are as follows:
- Thursday, February 19th, 10:00 am – 8:00 pm
- Friday, February 20th, 9:00 am – 7:00 pm

What are you looking forward to getting this year??

Today runDisney released some photos of what you will find at the Health & Fitness Expo taking place January 7-10, 2015 during Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend! Since this is the largest runDisney race weekend you can expect to find a LARGE assortment of merchandise items from shirts, hats, pins, glasses,
runDisney WDW Marathon Weekend
Here we have some of the overall Marathon Weekend items. As always, I love the pint glass but I especially LOVE the edition of the new runDisney Magic Band!! Those will surely sell out quickly!
2015 Coast to Coast & 2016 In Training
Here are the designs for the 2015 Coast to Coast shirts featuring the Partners Medal design which is a great addition. If you have your sights already set on a 2016 race, you can also pick up an “In Training” shirt to keep you motivated throughout the year.
I Did It!
Each race and challenge over Marathon Weekend features it’s very own “I Did It!” merchandise. You can pick up one or six if them if you are taking on the Dopey Challenge!
There is also a wide variety of options that feature all the events…I’m loving the addition of tank tops this year, something I have been asking for for a LOOOOONG time!!
WDW Half Marathon
Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge
WOW…that’s a lot of stuff!! As with most runDisney expos, it’s best to get there as early as possible if you have your heart set on certain items since they tend to sell out quickly. It’s hard to pick favorites out of all this great merch, but I’d have to go with the entire runDisney glass set, the aqua Marathon hoodie and BondiBand, and the pink Goofy pullover hoodies as my favorites. What will you be getting over Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend??

Your trip into the fifth dimension is fast approaching and runDisney has shared a sneak preview of some of the merchandise you will be able to purchase at the Health & Fitness Expo. I’m a BIG fan of the switch from Stitch as the race weekend “mascot” to Maleficent. She is much more sinister and evil than mischievous Stitch. This maroon shirt looks like it is the official race shirt that you will be getting with registration. The graphic is a bit large for my taste, but I really like the color of the shirt.
The black “I Did It” shirt is SUPER cool and how can you go wrong with the hitchhiking ghosts on a pin?!
I’m also a big fan of this purple shirt and black jacket. A bit more understated than the maroon shirt.
So what do you think? How many of these items will you be purchasing this weekend? What’s your favorite?
