Registration for the Star Wars Half Marathon 2016 Weekend opens at 12 p.m. Eastern on June 16, 2015. The Disney half marathon race weekend will take place January 14-17, 2016 in a galaxy far, far away. OK, it’s really at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif.

More than 23,000 runners took part in the inaugural event in 2015, which included the Star Wars Half Marathon, Star Wars 10K, Star Wars 5K, Star Wars Rebel Challenge—where runners complete the 10K and half-marathon on consecutive days—and runDisney Kids Races. All those races will be back for 2016, along with the runDisney Health and Fitness Expo—where you can buy the coveted New Balance runDisney shoes. The 2016 course maps have yet to be released, but last year’s races ran through Disney California Adventure Park, Disneyland Park, Downtown Disney and the streets of Anaheim, Calif.

How fast will the Star Wars Half Marathon 2016 Weekend sell-out? Likely faster than the Millennium Falcon can travel 6.8323E-13 parsecs (that’s 13.1-miles). The inaugural Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend in 2015 sold out in two hours. The Star Wars Rebel Challenge sold out first in 24 minutes. The runDisney Kids Races followed in 38 minutes. The Star Wars 5K filled up in 54 minutes. The Star Wars 10K was gone inside of 80 minutes, and the Star Wars Half Marathon closed in 2 hours and 2 minutes.

So if you want to be a part of the Star Wars Half Marathon 2016, get online at noon Eastern Tuesday. May the force be with you!

    Hello. My name is Ricardo. I just found out about the Star Wars 5k run that was sold out. I would love to run this race with my grandson Kyle. Is there a wait list available?

    Thank you
