Heat Advisory: Preparing for Star Wars™ Half Marathon – The Dark Side

The Central Florida area is anticipated to experience warmer weather than usual. Those participating in the Star Wars Half Marathon – The Dark Side race event should plan accordingly for their race. Here are a few important tips to consider:

  • Closely monitor your pace and do not overextend yourself. This may not be the event to attempt your personal best.
  • Stay well hydrated prior to the race and maintain fluid status with alternating water and electrolyte-based hydration options throughout your race and the entire race weekend.
  • Slow down and ask for assistance at any signs of heat illness, including dizziness, light-headedness or nausea. Heed these warnings seriously.

As a reminder, all medical stations will have the appropriate flag color displayed according to existing heat conditions. For more information, please reference page 37 in the official event guide.
