    Half was the best race. Extra Stormtroopers in the parks and lots of characters on the streets outside of the parks. New PR for me, 2:04. Vader never did get Rudy to go to the dark side. :D

    Well, glad to know someone is still thinking. Hopefully that means someone at WDW just messed up and all will be good in the future?

    Just registered for the Half in 2016 using DVC member early registration. Rebel Challenge early registration was sold out in under 3 minutes. Active has done some improvements to there site and it was much better looking and simpler.

    The challenge? Maybe it was the wait room then. I saw a sold out around 12 min in (and friends were trying to get in)

    I was just checking the percentages on the run Disney page...And they had it at 98% close to an hour in. But who knows how accurate that is.

    For a split second I thought these were the WDW medals and got excited.

    Since this would appear to be the "official" DLR Star Wars thread, posting a registration update.

    Yeah, half and challenge are both still available. I'm amazed at how they can keep raising the prices on the 5k/10k and they keep selling out so darn fast.

    I just registered for the half.

    I did Tinker Bell last month and my new goal is to do all the events on both coasts. Not ruling Paris out but it isn't part of the goal.

    I'm registered for the challenge! I can't wait to be back at Disneyland. I hope the WDW challenge is as easy to register for as this one.
