Renée ran the inaugural Rebel Challenge/Star Wars Half Marathon back in January and was nice enough to send us the following pictures and a review.
As a reminder, if you'd like to run the Avengers Half Marathon or any of the races that weekend, registration opens TODAY. So that means, register TODAY!!! =)
First, a few shots from the Expo, which is pretty much a typical RunDisney Expo but with some cool Star Wars signage.
We;ll start off with the 10k.
One of the best things about the race was the creative Star Wars themed costumes that people came up with.
There was a lack of characters along both the 10k and half courses, and when there were any, the lines were quite long. I didn't stop for anyone during the 10k.
They did have several Jedi cheering us on in some areas.
After the 10k
Moving on to the next morning and the Half Marathon.
Character lines were a little shorter since I was in an earlier corral for the half, so I stopped at a few.
Luke and Leia were appearing where Chewbacca was the previous day.
The lines for Chewbacca and Darth Vader were still too long for me to justify waiting.
Besides the disney parks, the best part of the course was a stretch of road where Star Wars fans appeared in some awesome costumes.
Finish line and of course the medals.
Thanks again to Renée for sending us these amazing pictures. It's nice to see Disney switching up the courses a bit and hopefully they'll have more characters out for the next race. Maybe even some from the new Star Wars movie!!
