Star Wars 5k 2016 Race Recap

The runDisney Star Wars 5k started at 5:30am.  My favorite thing about Disneyland races though is staying close enough to walk to the race.  No buses!!! 

IMG_2685I put on my X-Wing pilot costume and headed out.

IMG_2687The course starts and you come into the parks from the backstage area behind Toontown.  Right there was Chewbacca with a crazy long line.IMG_2695Castle selfies are always a must.  That is why we pay these crazy prices for runDisney races after all isn’t it?IMG_2691Star Wars Rebels were in Tomorrowland.IMG_2696My favorite little droid BB8 was in Hollywood at California Adventure. IMG_2699There were some stormtroopers hanging out in front of the winery.

IMG_2703Not the droids you are looking for…but some other ones were out! R2D2 and C3PO were in California Adventure near the entrance into Cars Land.  I LOVED C3PO! There was actually a person in the costume and talked using fancy shmancy technology.  Loved it!!!IMG_2704The lines for the characters were long, so you either need to be a fast runner to be able to make it to all of them, or just pick one.IMG_2715I had a good time.  I really loved the course and the medal is pretty retroly (I totally made that word up) awesome!  I ran the Rebel Challenge (10k and half marathon) the following 2 days, so stay tuned for those recaps.

Did you run the Star Wars 5k?
