Feel the Power of the Dark Side at runDisney's next Star Wars 2017 Half Marathon!

From April 20th to April 23rd 2017, Walt Disney World will be invaded by the forces of the Galactic Empire for the 2017 Dark Side Half Marathon. There will be races for all ages and everyone can participate. There will be a heavy Stormtrooper presence, but don't worry— they'll be there to cheer you on! And even if you decide to run in the name of the Light Side and the Rebellion, you'll be fine; we all know Stormtroopers can't hit anything anyway!

You'll have a choice of events including the 5k Half Marathon, the Star Wars 10k, or do both to take the Dark Side Challenge and prove that the Force really is with you. There will also be kids' races and more fun events for the whole family. Make sure you register soon at the link above.

Of course, at Your WDW Store, we carry exclusive Walt Disney World Star Wars merchandise you can't get anywhere else! Keep an eye out in our store for Dark Side 2017 runDisney apparel and souvenirs after the event. In the meantime, check out our current Star Wars catalog. You're sure to find something to get you into that Jedi spirit.

Our catalog includes a vast selection of Star Wars apparel for all ages, from toddlers to adults (after all, the Force transcends time). We carry hats, shirts, headbands, and more with a variety of favorite characters from every Star Wars film. We also have a huge number of Star Wars Disney souvenirs in stock covering everything from pins to toys. If you want to display your allegiance at home, check out our Star Wars wall posters too!

If you really are feeling the power of the Force and can't wait for the Dark Side Half Marathon, make sure you register soon as time is running out. But even if you don't get to attend this year, you can still have a great Star Wars event at home thanks to Your WDW Store!
