    This is our family's first RunDisney event. Can you tell us if any food is provided at the end of the race or if we need to bring along some energy snacks? Thanks!

    Hi, Dru! 

    I'm so excited to hear you and your family will be participating in your first runDisney race event soon! Based on your arrival date, I'm assuming you will be taking on The Dark Side of the force during the inaugural Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend  - The Dark Side at Walt Disney World® Resort. I would love to know which of the three races you are participating in?

    I can tell you regardless of which race you are running the food & beverage force is strong with runDisney. Here is what you can expect. 

    Star Wars 5K - two on-course water stops. Post-race bottles of Dasani water, PowerAde, bananas and runDisney Fitful Nutrition boxes filled with all sorts of goodies. 

    Star Wars 10K - All of the above post-race food & beverage with the addition of more on-course water stops.

    Star Wars Half Marathon - All the above post-race food & beverage items with additional water and PowerAde stops on-course and a Cliff Gel at mile 9.

    You will definitely not need to bring any additional snacks if you are running the 5K or 10K, your hands will be full after these races with food & beverages. And if you're running the half marathon, you'll probably want to carry fuel with you during the race. 

    I hope this helps, Dru! Please let me know if you should have any additional questions. I am here to help you plan an out-of-this-world runDisney-cation.
