Could the Dark Side Challenge have Yet Another Course Map for 2018?
This Race Weekend could be on the verge of having yet another course map for the 2018 Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon and 10k if we look at what runDisney is giving us. No start or Finish locations announced. Tons of speculation and theories as to why runDisney has yet to even give us a start and Finish location. In my personal opinion, I think with all the construction to Disney Hollywood Studios, it makes course makers lives little more harry. The change of production, or alterations to roadways could be the root cause to why the nondisclosure. You could also point to this years 2017 Wine and Dine Half, not having a Start/Finish location, could it be a trend that runDisney will be heading to? Only time will know. Where do you think the 2018 Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon Map will lead?

News : The Dark Side Challenger is very happy to report that the amazing Fitz Koehler of fitzness.com has confirmed that she will be at the 2017 Star Wars Dark Side Race Weekend. While we can't confirm what races she will be racing at this time; however, she did say "I will definitely be bringing both of my hugging arms and am excited to squeeze as many of my favorite runners as I can from the VIP tent before the finish line at the half, in the parking lots, in the corrals and everywhere else!". She is an amazing announcer, fitness guru, and inspiration in the fitness community. Looking forward to sharing the Dark Side with her in April.

Dark Side Challenger Figured Out the 2017 Courses
Botha Spy reported that the route might go the way of the Marathon to AK
Updated September 3rd 2016
A unnamed source notified us that the officials in charge of the course map were still debating on course maps for the Half Marathon. Most of the issues are due to the Hollywood Studios construction. The source said that the Half Marathon might go the same route to Animal Kingdom as the Walt Disney World Marathon does. This route would utilize Bear Island Road from Floridian Way. I went to USATF to see if this was possible, Disney will have to come up with another mile somewhere to bring it up to 13.1 miles. Very interesting, but hopefully they Pick the MK route. When we know something more, we will post it asap.
