With much anticipation and great joy, the registration for the runDisney Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side arrived this afternoon. I am happy to say, that I am in it for the Dark Side Challenge!?!? Surprised? Yeah me neither.
I am excited to run the 10K, and the half marathon as part of the Dark Side Challenge. Alpha will be running the half marathon with me but not the 10K. First Disney race I will run without him. <insert sad face here> But it’s OK because we are running the 5K as a family with our little man! It will be his 4th 5K and he is over the moon excited for it!
So now that you are joining the dark side, I’ve got the perfect place for you to stay! It’s where we always stay when we do runDisney races. Yes, I do live in Orlando but that is how awesome this place is, that we stay there every time! It is the Hilton Bonnet Creek. They do a HUGE send off party with lots of food, coffee, fuel, snacks, and either ponchos or hand warmers depending on the weather(they are always prepared) They also offer a carb load fest at their amazingly delicious at Harvest Bistro. Just look at all the perks that come with it:
For the send off party, they go all out! It’s a big group of cheerleaders super pumped with signs, music and dancing, as you get on the bus to take you to the start line. They do have transportation back from the race as well. You also get your own runner’s concierge that is there to answer any and all your questions related to your runDisney stay.
Take advantage of their early bird special before it’s too late!!! Click here. They also have an upcoming event for Food and Wine which is a GREAT combo for the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival. It’s worth a look over 😉
