    Has there been any update on the 2018 Light Side weekend? If not, what is the latest speculation. Weren't planning to do it in 2018, but were looking at 2019.

    damn you, I thought you had some nefarious inside knowledge. I wonder what the hold up is for light side because they are leaving less and less time for people to make trip plans. I doubt they would cancel it because that would screw people trying to get the Kessel Run medal, but geez, this is a long delay. As for Tinker bell...I imagine that will not have any problems selling out - for same reason (pink C2C) and because it is women centered.

    There are always rumors which some say it's the city of Anaheim causing the hold up.

    And if that is the case we may not hear anything on these races until after disneyland half and how anaheim thinks it goes.

    A fellow RunDisney runner posted this today:

    "As a prelude here, this doesn't include any Light Side dates or registration information. That hasn't been announced. Instead, this shows there is some work on the coding part of the Light Side website I haven't noticed before.

    So...it looks like runDisney is beginning to add some information about the upcoming Resistance races as it transitions from Light Side. I noticed this in the HTML code today (I check every few weeks to see if there's anything new and hadn't seen it before). Coding removed for readability:

    Challenge - "Welcome to the Resistance! Now you can use the Force to amplify your strength and endurance in the ultimate test of your running skills during the Star Wars Resistance Challenge combining the Star Wars 10K on Saturday with the Star Wars Half Marathon Resistance Run on Sunday. You'll need all the power of the Force for this two-day, 19.3-mile run. Runners who finish both races are awarded the Star Wars Resistance Challenge Finisher Medal in addition to the Half Marathon and 10K finisher medals."

    Half Marathon - "Join heroes Poe and BB-8 for the Star Wars Half Marathon Resistance Run at Disneyland Resort. It's a 13.1-mile running adventure in the Happiest Place on Earth. Your course takes you through Disney California Adventure Park, Disneyland Park, and on the terrestrial streets of the surrounding areas before a galactic finish. Follow the path to the Resistance and never underestimate the power of the dark side."

    10K - "Embark on a journey with our favorite Wookiee, Chewbacca, and R2-D2 on a Resistance race through Disneyland Resort. The Star Wars 10K race begins on Disneyland Drive where you'll race through Disneyland Resort on a 6.2-mile course with a spectacular finish!"

    5K - "Escape the First Order with our favorite former stormtrooper, Finn, in the Star Wars 5K through Disneyland Resort! Bring the whole family for this intergalactic adventure for adults, teens and children over the age of 5."

    So...progress?"

    Ok I hate to nitpick because any news seems good but, but,but how did they manage to theme three separate Star Wars Resistance races and manage to incorporate Chewbacca but not General Leia Organa or Rey?

    I am legitimately not as upset about probably not being able to pull together this trip now. The Resistance is Force Awakens material. She's the main character of The Force Awakens. Who thought this idea through? I mean, I get that this isn't princess weekend, I didn't expect her to be the highlight, but not featured anywhere? Are they afraid they won't sell bibs if they have a race that features Rey?

    Has runDisney given us any info on what is going on in Anaheim? I've heard rumors, but at this point I'm surprised that we haven't gotten any official word on what the issue is. Anyone who is wanting to do Coast-to-Coast next year is being left in limbo.

    Not that I've heard. Apparently all printed materials at the DL expo just mention Super Heroes and the WDW races, though...

    I have seen some people posting that they have asked runDisney what they deal is and getting no answers. One person said they asked if we will hear anything after this weekend and apparently they smiled and said hopefully. Take from that what you will.

    Hi everyone!

    I'm very brand new to running (like, downloaded the couch to 5k app two weeks ago :rotfl: ) and I'm thinking it would be fun to run one of the Disney races in 2019! I read in one of the FAQ posts on the first page that same races sell out within an hour, and some will be open for months before filling. Do the 5ks typically fill up quickly? Are the registration dates announced in advance, or do people just have to check daily when it's that time of year?

    5Ks and 10Ks tend to sell out quicker because there are less spots. It also sometimes depends on the race weekend. Princess for example sells out very quickly. Registration dates and times will be announced ahead of time.

    So, I was at the Disneyland Half Marathon and was told there was a major shake up within RunDisney itself after Tinkerbell. I was also told that Disney and Anaheim are not on good terms right now. Several of the new city council members are wanting to demonstrate their power while Disney is busy saying we can and we will get what we want. I was also told there is Disney is working to buy several properties in an around Anaheim including Angels Stadium which the Angels do not own (I was told this by a long time cast member). There were several theories about the races including taking a year off from the races due to construction in and around Disneyland.
