What is a virtual race?
As part of a virtual race, runners can register to walk, jog or run the Star Wars™ Virtual Half Marathon on their own time in the location of their choice and receive a medal for their efforts once they complete the race. Runners can complete the half marathon in any intervals or pace within the timeframe (January 3 – March 31, 2018).
