Do you know how I know Disney works magic? They make running look fun. runDisney hosted the inaugural Star Wars 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon at Disneyland Resort over the weekend, and I stared longingly at social media wishing I was there. I’ve never felt that way about running. Events kicked off with a Wookiee Welcome Party, there were Star Wars themed treats, and both cast members and runners wore costumes. Nick Arciniaga took first place in the half marathon, but as far as I’m concerned, anyone possessing the fortitude to wear a costume and run in it wins too. There should be a special trophy.
I rounded up some of my favorite ensembles from the races and they include BB-8, Max Rebo, Elsa Fett, and many more. Take a look:
