A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... okay, a couple weeks a go in Anaheim to be exact, Disneyland held its very first Star Wars race weekend, and it was AMAZING.

And I say that without any irony or clickbait — running Inaugural Star Wars 10k through Disneyland before sunrise is one of the coolest things you can do on the planet, no lie.

Run Disney had various races for different levels of runners (a 5k on Friday, a 10k on Saturday, a half marathon on Sunday), plus kids’ races, a Wookie Welcome Party on Thursday night, and Rebel Challenge which involved a mix of the above runs.


The entire article & pictures can be seen in my original blog post at LA Tech Digest, but for the sake of brevity, I'll just post some quick pics.
