It looked like a medal cuz of the long lanyard type thing
FINALLY!! Someone got it!

I bought that pin last year and the ribbon is fairly long. I suspect they'll have them again at Dark Side along with Kessel Run shirts.
The only thing that makes me "sad" about the virtual medal is it makes me wonder what they had planned for the challenge.
I can't tell from the pic, but does the virtual half medal spin?
Looks like it has a little x wing figure that slides on the edge of the right side.
It's been confirmed that the X-Wing on the right side moves in a semicircle. People who saw the medal at Marathon Weekend confirmed it and I've seen multiple photos showing the X-Wing in different places on the medal.
I just signed up for this. My first runDisney event and I get to do it at home on my treadmill =)
I went back and forth for a few days on this. Eventually i ended up registering because why not, I am such a sucker for Star Wars medals. I signed up Friday 1/5/18 and ran 13.1 on Sunday 1/17/18. You don't have to send in results but if you do you can get this cool finishers certificate.
I also ran it straight, non stop and it ended up being a personal best and first time running a half under 2 hours as well. I am way too competitive with myself to do it any other way then it would have been, if we were at Disneyland. I ran LS and DS for a true Kessel in 2017 but I can't turn down Kessel #2. haha
I like that finishers certificate. Very nice. Like you I also ran the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs last year on each coast. I vote we call this year's Kessel Run the 14 Parsecs Kessel Run. Also like you, I could not resist getting Kessel Run medal #2.
