Come the 5th of May 2018, the second edition of the Star Wars™ Run will make a return, with brand new elements and a completely different race venue.
Follows the success of the inaugural 2017 STAR WARS™ Run
This follows the success of last year’s inaugural event, which had attracted more than 15,000 runners and since then, the STAR WARS™ Run has become a prominent event in the running calendar both in Singapore as well as in the region.
A popular themed run that STAR WARS™ fans and runners can look forward to, the race is presented by the Walt Disney Company South East Asia and put together by race organiser Esprimo.
My Dad and I are both STAR WARS™ fans, so naturally this is a run that both of us are eagerly anticipating.
Takes place at the F1 Pit Building and the Marina Bay Area
The fun STAR WARS™ themed run will be taking place at the F1 Pit Building and the Marina Bay area and runners can look forward to a unique event themed around the iconic storyline of characters from the franchise.
Caters to runners of all abilities
To cater to runners of all abilities, there will be a competitive 10km Race and non-competitive 5.4km Fun Run, as well as a 540m Young Jedi Dash, a brand new category that is making a debut this year and is targeted at young fans.
Lots of activities to take place at the Race Village
There will also be plenty of activities at the race village and these will include interactions with characters, food & beverages and an outdoor movie screening of STAR WARS™ movies.
Runners can choose to join the Rebellion or the Dark Side
In line with the STAR WARS™ movies, runners can choose to join the Rebellion on the Light Side or follow Darth Vader and Kylo Ren’s footsteps on the Dark Side.
In a first of its kind flag off, the Light Side and Dark Side participants will run in opposite directions of the non competitive 5.4km Fun Run.
Additionally, both of the routes will also feature engagement zones that are set to bring the STAR WARS™ experience to life with music and light projections as well as fun photo opportunities.
I can still remember how much fun last year’s event had been – and if the 2018 Run promises to be bigger and better than ever, then I can’t wait to find out what will be in store for STAR WARS™ fans like myself.
For Loyal Runners who were part of the STAR WARS™ Run last year, they can enjoy a special registration rate, from now till 14 March 2018. Priority Registration is also exclusively open to Loyal Runners for the first seven days, with limited slots available.

Race Pack Entitlements

Finishers of the 5.4km and the 10km Run will also receive a commemorative Finisher’s Medal that is unique to their category as well as a Finisher Tee Shirt.
The design of the Finisher Tee Shirt however, is yet to be unveiled.
