So yesterday’s run can’t help but be a bit disappointing.
Still, it was fun to see people dressed up for the occasion.
Flag-off for the 10km race was at 5pm. Last year’s flag-off was closer to sunset.
Because of the time of day, it was also rather hot for a 10km race.
I saw at least one man dressed as Princess Leia.
I was surprised there were pacers for the Star Wars Run.
Running through the tent was a non-event.
Everyone got coconut water at the finish line. You had to walk a little farther for plain water. No isotonic drinks.
After finishing my 10km race, I accompanied my wife for her 5.4km run. The first wave flag-off was at 7.30pm. There were fireworks, which is what we’ve come to expect at the Stars Wars Run.
There was also a light show in the tent.
So it seems the 5.4km runners got a better deal than the 10km runners.
I consider the 15.4km I covered as training for the Sundown (half) Marathon in two weeks.
