    My husband is running the Star Wars 5k and the Dark Side Challenge in April. Will I need a park ticket as a spectator for all three events?

    Hi Aimee!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am so excited about the new Star Wars Half Marathon- The Dark Side weekend races.  It's always fun to be a part of an inaugural race weekend.

    You will not need to purchase park tickets to view your husband.  Every race will have viewing areas available for spectators that are not in the parks.  The 5K and 10K should be finished before the parks are even open!  

    About two weeks prior to the race, you will find an "Official Event Guide" on the Star Wars Half Marathon website.  It will be under the RUNNER INFO tab.  This guide will have course maps and spectator viewing information.  Guides will also be available in print form at packet pick-up.  

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions, and best wishes to your husband.
