Themes announced for 2020 races. I want to see the design for the magicband.

Love the X-Wing vs TIE. Classic.

Darth Vader vs Yoda? Huh? Vader never faced Yoda. In fact, they never saw each other. Ever.

Maybe it should be Emperor vs Yoda (Ep3). Vader vs Obi-Wan makes more sense.

Maul vs Ashoka? Meh...ok, I guess.

Sometimes, I really wonder what these people at rD are thinking and who makes these final decisions.

I was kind of hoping for a Anakin vs. The Younglings medal. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Registration seems to still be open for all of the races a week after it opened to everyone. I'm guessing this will mean it may be less attended than last year? Or am I wrong?
None of the races are sold out for this one yet. Am I the only person running this race? If so, can I just ride a bike?

It’s finally happened, the 10k is now sold out, glad I was able to snag my spots in the three races the morning the AP registration opened up in early-July 😉 (still wasn’t fast enough to get a magic band somehow)

2020 medals released. No Falcon for the Kessel? 😠

Great find! Looks like they switched it out for the cockpit view, a la Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, someone in Parks must’ve gotten in there and demanded synergy!! [2021 change to Smugglers Run Challenge CONFIRMED!!! 😜].

I do really like the looks of the two half medals and the set overall (although maybe not super pumped about the 5k, although feeling a little better that I’m guessing we can flip it to the Darth Maul side vs the character I’m not familiar with).

Edit: found the other side of a few of them on the No Guilt site:

I wouldn't be surprised if runDisney changed the name of the challenge next year. That will tick off the Anaheim racers.

I like the half design - much better than recent years. The emphasized call out of the 5 years is a nice touch. The kids race medallions are adorable!

Yes
those aren't bad. Here's to hoping that A - I'm living in Florida by April and B - the race/challenge is still open.

Edit: as of right now the 10k is the only one sold out
