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!

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!

  • I love the half medal!

    I may even like it more than I like the Rebel Challenge medal… I’m not sure I like the way the depiction of vader/yoda turned out. Excited to earn three of the medals anyway!
