Any runner can tell you that the best part of finishing a race that you’ve trained hard for is getting the race bling at the finish line. Receiving your medal at the end of the race is a great high for runners, and it certainly adds to the excitement when the medal design is amazing to boot! If you are running during the inaugural runDisney Dark Side Half Marathon Weekend, here is a look at what your medals will look like:
-5k runners will get a medal featuring Stormtroopers.
-Kids participating in the runDisney Kid’s races will have a medal featuring Darth Vader wielding a lightsaber.
-10k race finishers will get a medal featuring a Tie Fighter.
-The half marathon runners will get a medal in the likeness of Darth Vader.
Those runners who participate in the Dark Side Challenge will also receive an additional medal with a Death Star for running both the 10k and the half marathon. Those brave souls with enough Force to finish The Star Wars Half Marathon at Disneyland plus the Dark Side Half at WDW will receive a special “coast to coast” medal featuring the Millenium Falcon.
