Get Motivated With These Awesome Star Wars: Rival Run Weekend Resources
It’s almost time for Star Wars: Rival Run weekend and this year, it’s all happening virtually. This may mean that you might find it a big harder than usual with all the distractions to get in the zone. But thankfully the team at runDisney has you covered!
Get ready to pick your side in this ongoing battle between the light and the dark as months of training culminate in you running through a galaxy of your choice while celebrating many of Star Wars greatest icons! Here are a few ways you can stay motivated over race weekend!
Most Impressive Race Weekend Tips
Add a galactic touch to your miles when you download a virtual race kit featuring mile markers and a “Start Line” and “Finish Line.”
- Registered runners can download theirs by heading to the “Manage Account” section on the runDisney website. Once at the dashboard click on “Your Registrations” and select Star Wars Rival Run Weekend.
runDisney has some specially designed graphics for each event that you can use on social media. You can download these videos to share with friends and family what event you’re running and that you finished your virtual miles. There’s even specially created Giphy stickers, perfect for sharing “I Did It!.” Oh and be sure to use the hashtag r #StarWarsRivalRunVirtual so fellow racers and Disney friends can follow along!
Galactic runDisney Style
Add some Star Wars-inspired attire to your run. Head to shopDisney.com to pick up some last minute gear from the runDisney collection, inspired by the Star Wars galaxy.
