runDisney Transitions 2021 Star Wars Rival Run Weekend to Virtual Race

runDisney has announced that the 2021 Star Wars Rival Run Weekend will now be virtual instead of in-person. The Star Wars Rival Run Weekend was scheduled for April 15-18, 2021. The 2020 Star Wars Rival Run Weekend was canceled due to COVID-19.

According to runDisney’s advisory, they will be reimagining the theming of the race weekend for 2022 and will share more information later.

Participants who booked directly through will have the option of receiving a full refund for the race weekend. Those who registered with a U.S.A. mailing address may also convert their registration to the virtual event and may complete it from home. Eligible participants will still receive a medal for each distance they complete and the option of a race shirt.

Registered participants will receive an email with instructions on how to receive a refund or adjust their registration before December 18, 2020.

Additional registration slots for the virtual race weekend will open on Tuesday, December 15, at 10:00 AM ET.

Participants who’ve booked through a charity or tour operator should reach out directly to that organization. Athletes who’ve booked through the Walt Disney Travel Company may call them at 407-939-4786 (407-939-IRUN) for available options.
