Event participants will get their own run pack which consists of a limited event T-shirt, a picnic mat, tote bag, medal, as well as a finisher’s t-shirt or a plush bag clip, all appropriately themed with the Dark or Light Side.

The event first saw its successful debut last year with much fanfare and excitement on the last day of the three-day festivities branded as Star Wars Day, otherwise known as May the 4th.

The event paved the way to a three-year partnership between Walt Disney Southeast Asia and the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), entitling Singapore to hold entertainment activities centred around some of the biggest brands of Disney, including the Star Wars franchise.
