As with all runDisney race weekends, this one starts with the Health & Fitness Expo on Thursday, January 15th in the Disneyland Hotel Expo Hall. This will run through Saturday, January 17th and is where you must go to get your race packet for all of the races. I’m sure there is also going to be some amazing merchandise there…I can’t wait to see it!
A unique event during this race weekend is the Wookie Welcome Party. Unlike the Pasta in the Park Party on other Disneyland race weekends, this is a separate ticketed private event taking place in Tomorrowland in Disneyland Park after the park closes to regular guests. This dessert reception will feature numerous photo opportunities with Star Wars characters and select attractions will be open for guests to experience with little to no wait.
Make sure to visit the runDisney event page for more information on all of the events taking place that weekend along with valuable information on hotel rooms, park tickets and the ChEar Squad!
These races are going to sell out FAST! My guess is going to be within 2 hours or so. So you will want to be ready to move at lightspeed tomorrow to get registered….MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!
