Sometimes runners like to dress up on race day. I've been participating in Disney races since 2016, and it's always a lot of fun to dress up for those events.
It doesn't have to been a Disney race for runners to wear costumes, though. Some races are famous for their costumed runners, like Bay to Breakers. Turkey Trots and Christmas races attract a lot of casual runners and walkers, and a lot of fun holiday costumes. And of course it's a lot of fun to dress up a Halloween race!
For the Star Wars race weekends at Walt Disney World, I would usually run all three events: a 5K; followed by a 10K; followed by a half marathon. For the 5K race I liked to be silly and dress up as a non-Star Wars character. Star Trek always seemed like a great option. It was extra fun when interacting with official runDisney characters as well as members of the 501st on the course -- a lot of those 501sties are Star Trek fans, too!
During the Dark Side 5K in 2018, I dressed up as a Discovery medical officer. (You can read my race report here: 2018 Star Wars Dark Side 5K). Here's what you'll need to recreate this fun and easy running costume outfit look.
