Star Wars 10k and Half Marathon Coming in 2015


Hey there guys and gals Anonymouse here. I have some interesting Disney Gossip for those Marathon runners out there.

I have heard these are not the droids you are looking for… Just kidding what I heard was Disney is going to be bringing a new Marathon to Walt Disney World in May 2015 to coincide with Star Wars Weekend. They will be hosting a Star Wars themed 10k & Half Marathon for all you Star Wars Nerds. Not sure if a 5k is attached to this event so far all I have heard are the 2.

Chip was telling me there were many people dressed up in Star Wars outfits and what better time to run a marathon but Star Wars Weekends? Would you go?

runDisney is saying they have big news coming out tomorrow and I think this is it. As soon as I get more details I will post it, till then I am going to brush up on my Wookie.

Update 05/27/14 – The dates for the Star Wars Marathon will be Jan. 15-18 according to the Run Disney Twitter Feed. Stay tuned for full details. 

Anywho, that is all the Disney gossip I have right now. For my past gossip articles be sure to check them out here. Got any good gossip/rumors please email me at or on my facebook page.

Anonymouse searches the internet, annoys cast members, and wouldn’t think twice about using a Ouija board to find you the freshest Disney Gossip.
Some of what she’ll report is confirmed, some is based on information from the rumor mill, and some, frankly, she just read on the bathroom wall in Fantasyland.

So take it with a grain of salt and have fun!

    In May in Orlando? The idea might be sound, but that time frame is unlikely. Not unless their planning to rent every stretcher in Orlando to cart off the heat exhausted first timers that will hit the ground by mile 4.

    I know I am kinda bummed

    Looks like it was Marvel for this year (Nov.) Ah well…I’d love an obstacle type 5K with a Star Wars theme.

    I heard that too – from every Star Wars fan that hoped for it. Nothing annouced or even hinted yet.

    What does #smashthehalf have to do with Star Wars? And they are already moving the Tink Half to May and Everest is then as well. Plus the announcement is at 8:35 am Pacific which makes it sound like a Disneyland race. I’d love a Star Wars race, but there is a much more compelling case for a Marvel race at Disneyland being the announcement. We’ll see in a few hours!
