runDisney has announced a Star Wars Virtual Half Marathon for runners this year. Runners can register through February 28 at runDisney.com or at the runDisney Health & Fitness Expo at this weekend’s Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. To win the Star Wars-themed medal, you must complete 13.1 miles in the location of your choice (even your treadmill!) by March 31.
For runners who would like even more of a challenge, sign up for the 2018 runDisney Kessel Run Challenge, which consists of the Star Wars Virtual Half Marathon, plus the Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon at Walt Disney World on April 22.
The virtual run is also part of a fundraiser for Starlight Children’s Foundation. When registering, you’ll have an opportunity to make a donation to the Foundation; runDisney will also be making an independent donation on behalf of the Star Wars Virtual Half Marathon.
