To say I’m jealous of everyone participating in Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend is an understatement! This race weekend is a dream come true for this Star Wars and Disney geek…talk about worlds colliding!

Since I’m not able to make it to Disneyland next week, if you are running one (or all) of the races over Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend next week, or if you will be at the Disneyland resort as a spectator I need YOU!

I’m looking for runners, walkers, spectators, Disney enthusiasts and Star Wars geeks of all kinds to cover the variety of events over that weekend!  Here are the some ideas for posts:

    • Star Wars 5K
    • Star Wars 10K
    • Star Wars Half Marathon
    • Rebel Challenge
    • Kids Races
  • Wookie Welcome Party
  • Unique Star Wars Photo Ops
  • A Spectator’s Point of View
  • Health & Fitness Expo
  • runDisney Speaker Series
  • First Time Disney Runners
  • Race Weekend Dining

  • And anything else you can think of…

Choice of topic will come on a first serve basis, so email me at if you are interested in covering one or many aspects of Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend for Running at Disney…the more the merrier!!

Best of luck to everyone running and I can’t wait to hear from you!

Inaugural Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend Medals Revealed!

Yesterday runDisney officially revealed the SUPER RAD medals for the Inaugural Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend in January 2015, and I am now having serious regrets about not signing up for these races!

Inaugural Star WarsHalf Marathon Weekend Medals

I was fortunate to get to see these first hand at the Wine & Dine Half Marathon Expo this past weekend and let me tell you…they are too cool.  Let’s take a closer look!

Star Wars Half Marathon Medal


Here’s a fun fact about this medal that RAD reader Andrew left on the Running at Disney Facebook page:

The 1/2 marathon medal is a replica of the medal that Princess Leia gave to Luke and Han at the end of the original Star Wars movie at the ceremony, it’s the medal of Yavin!!

Well this Star Wars geek finds that super cool!

Star Wars 10K Medal


If you’re a fan of Storm Troopers, this one is for you.  I can’t even imagine all of the great Storm Trooper photo ops that will be on the course!

Star Wars Rebel Challenge Medal


Runners who complete both the half marathon and the 10K will receive the Rebel Challenge medal.  This is a spinner medal (which I wasn’t aware of when I took the photo!) and Yoda is on the other side!  Well, this is by far the coolest of all the medals ever in existence.  Yup…it is.

Star Wars 5K


The 5K medallions are fun and colorful…and really, who doesn’t love C-3PO?

Kids Races


This is too cute!!  I wish I could run the Kids Races to get this R2-D2 medallion!  I think the best part of this is the ribbon.  Here’s a look at all the fun ribbons!


Rest assured that I will be having some serious envy issues when Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend rolls around!  Which medal is your favorite??


May the force be with you!
