runDisney has had to cancel their Star Wars Rival Run Weekend, but you can still run for the Rebellion with the Rebel Run virtual race May 4-May 11th!
For those unfamiliar, Main Street Bella hosts various virtual races and the money supports charities. For this virtual run “each ticket supports the Boys & Girls Clubs©, Make- A-Wish© and Meals On Wheels©”
This is not a runDisney race. Main Street Bella is not affiliated with them, but I always liked to do them both.
Here’s the write up:
“Celebrate hope and determination in this fun virtual race and awesome swag. This Star Wars themed race will be held the week of May 4th-11th, 2020 and is perfect for kids and adults alike. You can receive a finisher medal and shirt to commemorate your accomplishment. Plus you will be helping people in need. Our charity partners receive 20% of the proceeds from each ticket sold.”
Plus the Medal is super cute! It’s Baby Yoda!
This 3.5″ medal with race ribbon. Approximate weight is 4.5 oz.
How does this virtual race work?
Here’s the write up from Main Street Bella explaining how their virtual race works. You can choose what you want to run from a 5K to a Half-marathon.
“Virtual races are just like traditional races with a shirt, medal, community and fun. But you can run or walk the race wherever you want and with whomever you want. Even on a treadmill! Racers choose their race distance, what type and size of shirt they want and what day they will run their race. You have 7 days during the designated race week to you run your race. Then you record your finish time and submit that time to us at a special check in page we provide. Once your time is submitted we send our your finisher shirt and medal.
- You register for your spot and choose the swag you want (shirt, medal or both)
- The week of the race (May 4th – 11th, 2020) you run a 5K, 10K or 13.1, whatever you choose. As long as its within the race week window you are good to go.
- You record your time on a smart phone or device.
- You submit your race time at the link provided with your registration.
- We post your time on a leader board.
- Once we receive your race time we send out your items (shirt, medal, etc)”
You have two ticket options:
- Shirt & Medal – $50
This option comes with our high quality finisher medal and a race shirt of your choice.
- Medal Only – $30
Finish your race, report your time, and this high quality finisher medal is all yours!
This is the shirt design:
If you have the VIP membership you can register now. I already did, but it will open to everyone on April 2nd. These are limited and spots sell out quickly!
Don’t forget you can shop all of their fabulous athletic wear and accessory Disney-inspired designs HERE.
I have done a couple races with Main Street Bella and they have been great! I highly recommend them and with social distancing going on right now, running at home or near your home is probably a better idea!
