It was finally here! Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side weekend! I was so excited to participate in my very first runDisney event! I was only able to run the 5k due to my flight schedule but I was excited non-the-less.
The first thing you have to do for runDisney weekends is attend the Expo. This is held at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports. This event is where you get your race bib, timing chips, t-shirts, commemorative items, and can shop until you drop at the runners expo.
First stop, the HP Field House to pick up my bib and t-shirt! You can also get your pre-purchased items and commemorative items as well!
One thing that many people love is the special Dooney & Bourke purses that they release for these races. They had plenty of variety left for people to choose from.
After collecting these items, you can make your way over to the Jostens Center to shop!
Next stop, sleep!!! The bus leaves the resort at 4am for the Star Wars Dark Side 5k Race.
