Due to the complexity of hosting an in-person race weekend during the pandemic, the decision has been made to transition the 2021 runDisney Star Wars Rival Run Weekend into a virtual event. When the race weekend returns in 2022, it will have a different theme as that will be reimagined in the days ahead.
Participants who had already registered for the race will have the option to request a full refund. Refunds will be issued in the same manner they were paid (original form of payment). Those who do wish to participate virtually can convert their registration to the virtual event through runDisney.com. Runners will receive a medal for each distance run, and will also be able to request a race shirt. According to the information sent out by runDisney, those who have registered will receive an email with further instructions before December 18th, 2020.
Those who had not previously registered for Rival Run Weekend but would now like to register for the virtual race may do so beginning Tuesday, December 15th at 10am.
All charitable contributions will still be issued to Make-A-Wish Central and Northern Florida, and will not be refunded.
runDisney's details for participants of the virtual event are below:
