    Registered for 2018 Dark Side 5k and Dark Side Challenge through DVC. Will miss 2018 Light Side since I am doing the WDW Marathon the weekend before.

    If they don't open registration for the Light Side soon, we may all miss it. Over 2 months postponement and still not a peep. I was thinking we might have received an update once Tinkerbell was completed. Any educated guesses?

    They have renamed the challenge on the runDisney site.

    It's the First Order challenge according to this link.

    Come to the First Order, we have cookies & a medal sounds slightly less appealing to be honest.

    Maybe a Captain Phasma challenge medal?

    Well the challenge medal in 2017 is linked to both half marathon distances, not directly to the Light Side and Dark Side challenge or as we should call them, the Resistance or First Order challenges. Unless they wanna change the name of the entire weekend.

    I am, for several reasons, very curious about the 2018 challenge program and some planned weekends. I expect a update on those within 6 - 8 weeks.
