Early registration for Star Wars Rival Weekend now open, general registration opens Tuesday, August 28th


Star Wars Rival Weekend is getting closer as race registration is officially open for Disney Vacation Club Members and annual pass holders of Walt Disney World and Disneyland. Previously, Disney used to offer two different Star Wars races – the “light” side which took place at Disneyland in California and the “dark” side which took place at Walt Disney World in Florida. Since races at Disneyland have been cancelled, temporarily hopefully, Walt Disney World has decided to re-brand their Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon Weekend to the Star Wars Rival Run Weekend. Runners now have the opportunity at registration to choose if they’re with the light side or the dark side.

Star Wars Rival Weekend will take place at Walt Disney World in Florida from April 4, 2019 through April 7, 2019. The race weekend features an expo and races varying in distance for runners of different skill levels. Distances include kids races for the little ones from diaper dashes to a one mile run, a 5k, 10k, Half Marathon, and Challenge (10k followed by the Half Marathon). It will also feature an Expo that all running participants are required to visit in order to pick up their race bibs. The expo also features a variety of vendors and all kinds of different running gear.

Early registration is already open and as of writing this, all races are still available for registration. Those who would like to register should choose the appropriate link below to begin the registration process.

Not an annual pass member or Disney Vacation Club Member? Registration will open to the general public at noon ET on Tuesday, April 28, 2018. Be sure to visit runDisney’s website by clicking here for more information about the Star Wars Rival Run, including general registration on Tuesday.

Looking for another race? Registration for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend and the Princess Half Marathon Weekend are still open, but it seems only the longer distance races are still available at this current time.
